Potato is one of the vegetables that go with almost anything, and you can cook it in any way you like – be it fired, roasted, baked, or mashed. A potato dish that is hit in my home is baked potatoes with delicious shredded cheese and cheese sauce, popular known as liquid cheese in Australia.
Imagine, a spoon full creamy potatoes with dripping melted cheese coming towards you – isn’t it a fantasy. Let me help you turn this fantasy into reality.
After a few tries at home, now I can prepare this dish almost perfectly, here is the best recipe to make cheesy baked potatoes. Now grab a bag of potatoes and let’s get started!

Salt to taste
Thyme ½ Teaspoon, dried
