Easy cheesy potatoes from KraftRecipes.com is a recipe for cheesy potatoes made with Velveeta cheese. The recipe also uses potatoes, onions, mayonnaise and bacon. This recipe requires about 15 minutes of prep time, an hour of baking time, and it serves 10.

To make easy cheesy potatoes, first preheat the oven to 375 F. Cut 1 pound of baking potatoes into roughly 1/2 inch pieces. Then cut 8 ounces of Velveeta cheese into 1/2-inch pieces. Chop 1/2 cup of onions into small pieces. Cook and crumble 4 to 5 pieces of bacon. Finally, measure 1/4 cup of mayonnaise.

After these preparations, spray an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Mix the potatoes, Velveeta, onions and mayonnaise until evenly combined. Spread the mixture in the dish and cover it with aluminum foil. Bake at 375 F oven for 45 minutes. Take out the dish, uncover, and top with crumbled bacon. Return the dish, uncovered, to the oven and bake for five to 10 more minutes or until the potatoes are soft, and then serve.

KraftRecipes.com suggests sprinkling the top of the potatoes with fresh chopped parsley. Miracle Whip can substitute for the mayonnaise in this recipe, and 2 percent milk Velveeta can substitute for regular Velveeta.
