Jackie's Oven Chipped Potatoes

cheesy oven chipped potatoes
This recipe comes from my Aunt Jackie Jo. My aunt told me that she and her mom were arguing about where the recipe came from. I should say "discussing" instead of "arguing," because these are two of the sweetest people I know and the thought of them arguing is just silly. Since they are both named Jackie, I can still name the recipe after both of them! Anyways, her mom thought she found it in the newspaper, but Jackie thought it was herself that found it. Well, wherever it came from, it's a very quick and easy side dish and I'm glad to have it in my dinner repertoire. As always with my recipes, if you can't tolerate garlic, just leave it out. It will still be delicious. I like to served this with grilled chicken or fish. Enjoy!
