Cheesy New Potatoes

Phillip always plants new potatoes and we know that they will be ready to cook for Mother's Day.  Phillip's Mom loved to tease him about his garden and told him that he might not be able to grow other things but could always grow potatoes!  He carried her a bucket of potatoes to cook as soon as they were ready.  Her favorite way to eat them was boiled.  Once they were done, she would remove a few from the boiler and place them in a bowl.  She would mash them with her fork and then sprinkle with salt and pepper.  She said her family's favorite way for her to prepare them was to make Cheese Potatoes, especially for her grandson, Woody.   Mother's Day is Sunday and I will carry on the tradition of cooking Cheesy New Potatoes for our family, too.

New potatoes fresh from the garden

Place potatoes in a boiler and cover with water.  Add a tsp. of salt.  Boil over medium heat until done, about 40 min.  Pour a cup of water into a bowl, add 1 Tbsp. of self-rising flour and stir with a whisk.  Once incorporated, pour into the boiler of potatoes and water.  Stir often while it thickens over medium heat.  Pour the potatoes into a casserole dish.    Cover with a layer of shredded sharp cheddar cheese.  Place in the oven and allow the cheese to melt.
