MORE STEAK AND POTATOES! There are a million recipes for this and I plan to try them all. I love cheesy potatoes and had heard this Pioneer Women recipe  was amazing so of course I had to try it. I would make them again and again. I also made a simple side of grilled asparagus.


  • Asparagus
  • Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  • Olive Oil
  • Steaks (one per person)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Garlic
  • 4 whole Russet Potatoes, Scrubbed Clean
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 1-1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Whole Milk (I used 2% milk)
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Freshly Grated


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Smear softened butter all over the bottom of a baking dish.

Slice potatoes, then cut slices into fourths.

In a separate bowl, whisk together cream, milk, flour, minced garlic, salt, and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.

Place 1/3 of the potatoes in the bottom of the baking dish. Pour 1/3 of the cream mixture over the potatoes.

Repeat this two more times, ending with the cream mixture. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are golden brown and really bubbling. Add grated cheese to the top of the potatoes and bake for 3 to 5 more minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Allow to stand for a few minutes before serving by the spoonful.

While the potatoes are cooking, season the asparagus with garlic, lemon pepper and olive oil. Season steak with garlic, salt, pepper and rosemary. Grill both over medium until cooked to desired doneness.
