Potluck Cheesy Potatoes

Potluck Cheesy Potatoes
I hear there’s a shortage of Velveeta right now.  Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that everyone is making Queso Dip for watching the football games.  I suggest you stock up on some Velveeta now because these potatoes are not only for potlucks. Your family will love them!  And they are so easy to put together.  I made these for a staff Christmas party and there was not a crumb left.

I got this recipe from a co-worker many years ago, who also made them for a staff potluck gathering.  The recipe she gave me was on a  hand-written piece of paper with no title.  The genius in me named them Potluck Cheesy Potatoes.
