3 lbs. red potatoes or I just a whole bag
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 quarts half & half
1 lb block velveeta cheese, melted
pepper to taste
garlic salt to taste~ I use lawry's
1 tsp. hot pepper sauce {Optional}
1/2 cup parsley
1 package bacon pieces
1 cup green onions
1 pkg. Colby/Monterey jack cheese
1 container sour cream

Dice unpeeled red potatoes into cubes. Place in large pan cover with water and bring to boil. Let boil for 10 minutes or until almost cooked.
In a separate large pan, combine melted butter & flour, mixing until smooth. Place over low heat & gradually add half & half, stirring constantly. Continue to stir until smooth & liquid begins to thicken. Add melted velveeta. Stir well. Drain potatoes & add to cream mixture. Stir in pepper, garlic salt & hot pepper sauce. {optional}
Cover & cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Be sure its low because this does burn VERY easily with all the cheese. Serve with crumbled bacon, scallions, shredded cheese & sour cream.
