Secret Family Recipe


I'm really giving up the goods this time! Poppy Seed Potato is a staple in the Gilmore family & is a coveted dish that is always a crowd pleaser.

It is so good that the mister just asked, " Will your Mom be ok with you giving out this recipe?" You heard right, I might get in trouble, it's that delicious. Bon appetit!

Grandma Gilmore's Poppy Seed Potato

3 lbs red potatoes (approx 5-6)
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup poppy seeds
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
6-8 scallions/green onions
2 tbsp milk


Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 2.5 quart casserole dish.

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add potatoes & cook just until tender, about 15-20 minutes. Drain & let potatoes cool completely (very important: must be completely cool before grating, this step can be done in advance). Peel & grate potatoes.

In a large bowl, combine grated potatoes, sour cream, poppy seeds, grated cheese, chopped green onions, plus salt & pepper to taste.

Add potato mixture to casserole dish. Drizzle the milk over the top & bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes or until lightly browned.

Enjoy!
