1 1/2 c minced shallots
3 c grated white cheddar (divided in half)
3 c sour cream
1 Tbsp salt (use more or less to taste)
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
How to make it :
Mix the potatoes, shallots and cheese in a large mixing bowl until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper. Fold in the sour cream one cup at a time.
Oil a large baking dish (13 X 9 or larger pan will do) very well. Place the potato mixture in the pan and sprinkle top with the reserved cheddar cheese. Bake in a 350 oven for 25 minutes until hot and lightly browned.
