Hello my favorite blog readers! It’s Wednesday and that means I’m bringing you an AWESOME tried and true recipe. Today’s yumminess really had me regretting my first 2 years of marriage (not really!). For all of you newly weds or singles, living the high life, do you ever struggle with cooking for 2? My husband and I lived off of Ramen noodles and Freschetta pizza. I can’t see that big green pizza box, without thinking about our newly wed years and how much fun we had. Looking back, I do wish I would have put more effort in cooking a nice homemade dinner. A good meal for just two people is not a simple task! Well, I’m about to make that task a bit easier with today’s recipe of Cheesy Alfredo Potatoes!!

This potato recipe is crazy simple and will fancy up any dinner. These Alfredo Potatoes are absolutely amazing and full of flavor. With simple ingredients like cheese and spices, and a few simple steps, these potatoes are sure to be your new favorite go-to side dish recipe. To be honest, they’re great as the main dish too! You could easily add meat like shredded chicken or pulled pork on top and make them more filling and hearty if you want them more as a main dish. We served them as a side dish and they were gone in minutes. I had a feeling that would be the case since my family loves Alfredo!
