Grandma Utz's Potatoes

From Black Walnut Inn & Vineyard in Dundee, Oregon

A treasured family recipe, that's just too good not to share! This potato dish from Grandma Utz is easy, flexible, straightforward and can pretty well serve as a lovely accompaniment to just about anything.


  • 6 large russet potatoes washed and baked
  • 6 cups sour cream
  • One bunch of green onions, washed and sliced
  • 4 cups grated sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese (Tillamook extra sharp is preferrable)


After potatoes are baked, peel and grate using a coarse hand grater. Do not use the Cuisenaire as it makes them a very gluey consistency. Combine all other ingredients with the grated potatoes, mixing well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake uncovered for about an hour at 350 degrees. This makes a large casserole which will easily feed 24 guests.
