  • 2 lb potatoes
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
  • 2 cup milk
  • 2 cup shredded cheese divided
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Peel and chop the potatoes into 1.5-2 inch chunks. Place in a pot and cover with cold water. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil over medium high heat and let simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are fork tender, 13-15 minutes. Drain well.

  • Pour the milk into the pan in a thin stream while whisking, until smooth. Keep on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, 3-5 minutes. Add half of the shredded cheddar and the sour cream and stir until melted and creamy.
