Potatoes Romanoff

August 26, 2012Teresa

I absolutely love the taste of Potatoes Romanoff! This casserole contains mashed potatoes, green onions, cheese, sour cream, and salt and pepper. Then more cheese and paprika is sprinkled over top. The paprika is the ingredient that actually makes this dish so spectacular.

It provides an awesome flavor to these potatoes along with the cheese. The savory flavors of Potatoes Romanoff just seem to melt in your mouth. I enjoy this casserole so much I can eat it for a main dish and never feel deprived by not eating meat. It’s just that good. This casserole is also gluten free for those with gluten intolerance.

Potatoes Romanoff is an easy way to make a mashed potato casserole for potlucks, company, or to make ahead when you are short on time. This recipe calls for the potatoes to be baked and then shredded. I usually boil and then mash with a potato masher instead because it’s easier for me. But it turns out tasting wonderful no matter which way you make it.

The recipe also calls for this casserole to be refrigerated ahead of time so it’s easy to make the night before you want to serve it. Last week I remade this casserole again for a large potluck we were having and decided to take some new pictures to freshen up the images. The original pictures from August 2012 when I first began my blog were deplorable and didn’t give you a sense of the consistency and texture of this amazing dish.

About 10 or 11 years ago I collected this recipe from Pam Ramsey after she brought it to a potluck we were having. Pam was widowed a few years later,  subsequently remarried, and widowed again, but I always remember what a wonderful cook she was. I have several of her recipes including Double Crust Peach Cobbler and Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken.

Pam loved being a homemaker and she was exceptionally good at it. She homeschooled her children all the way through high school and loved every minute of it. Every recipe I collected from Pam was more than above average–each one was great or fabulous–especially the dessert recipes!

I think you’ll enjoy Pam’s delicious way to prepare potatoes. If you’re short on time make it the night before and pop it in the oven with your main dish about an hour or so before serving.

Potatoes Romanoff is great for holiday entertaining because you’re actually supposed to make it the night before you need it by refrigerating it for several hours. The flavors then marinate together providing a spectacular result.

I made a double batch of Potatoes Romanoff and this was the small pan I left at home. The other larger pan I took to a church potluck.

Here’s what I did.

Peel and boil potatoes until soft. Drain and mash with a potato masher. You can also bake the potatoes and grate them. Either way is acceptable, this way is just easier for me.

Sprinkle potatoes with remaining cheese and a generous sprinkling of paprika. Bake covered at 350 for about an hour (since these are cold to begin with they may take longer).

    Could you define the amount of potatoes, maybe in pounds? The large potatoes in one bag could be the small ones in the next bag. Thanks!

      Hi Dick. I’m sorry for not being really clear. I use pretty large potatoes – not quite the ten inch baking potatoes but about six to eight inches in length. If I were to guess I think it would be between four and five pounds. I’ll weigh the potatoes the next time I make this. This is such a good recipe. I get compliments every time I make it. Hope you enjoy it.

    Absolutely a delicious change from the usual. After I boiled the potatoes, I passed them through a ricer which made a nicely textured result before adding to the other ingredients. A go to recipe for sure!

      Hi, Jane. I made them for Thanksgiving dinner also. Love this recipe!

    A friend of mine gave me this fabulous recipe back in the seventies, and it was so delicious.
    I had forgotten about it because I was always trying out new recipes. My family wondered what we should cook for Easter this year and I thought, wow, why not Romanoff, but I lost the recipe, amount of ingredients etc, so went on line and voila there it was. So thanks for putting it on line for everyone to enjoy.

      You’re so welcome, Joan, so hope you enjoy it again. It’s surely been one of our favorites for the past 20 years or so.

    These potatoes are great. I first saw this recipe years ago in a Recipes Only magazine and my mother and I have made it dozens of times for family gatherings. I’ve also given the recipe to others many times. I usually boil the potatoes until tender, let cool and then shred. This is just the way the original recipe suggested and how we’ve always done it. I’m sure the mashing method would make an equally yummy dish.
