It’s the second Sunday of December and I am enjoying everything about this beautiful season.  Today, I set up a festive table and treated my loved ones with a wonderful dinner.

One of our side dishes was this delicious baked creamy rosemary potato that my younger daughter Yanah helped me make.  This dish is the definition of delicious and I have to share it with you.

I hope you take the time to show kindness around you and enjoy the moment.  This season is about gratitude and spreading love.  Peace and Joy!

Creamy Baked Potatoes


4 russets potatoes

¼ cup sour cream

1 cup half and half

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

One 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature

1 medium onion diced

4 green onions minced

Salt and ground black pepper

2tbsp extra virgin olive oil

5 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 tbsp Rosemary minced

1 tbsp dried parsley


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees

Slice the potatoes very thin either with a mandoline or a knife.

Sprinkle salt and one spoon of olive oil over them and place them in the baking dish.

In a large skillet over medium heat, add the other spoon of extra virgin olive oil.  Add the onions and the green onions, cook them for two minutes.  Then add the garlic, cook for another minute.   Cut the cream cheese in small pieces and add to the skillet and stir.

Continue stirring until the mixture is smooth for about two minutes.  Add the half and half and the sour cream.  Stir to combine.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add the rosemary and half of the Parmesan cheese.

Pour that mixture over the top of the potatoes.

Sprinkle the remaining of Parmesan cheese and the dry parsley.  Bake for one hour or until golden brown.

I served these creamy baked potatoes with steamed asparagus and a delicious honey glazed salmon.

Bon appetit.


  1. Yep, I WILL be making this soon. I love all things potatoes, especially when paired with so many other delicious ingredients like cream cheese and sour cream! My boys, strangely, won’t eat potatoes, but I could probably finish this on my own!

  2. This is just the recipe we’re looking for! We’re hosting Christmas Eve dinner this year and plan on doing baked ribs as one of the dishes. This would go great with that!

  3. I love potatoes prepared in this way, only in the vege version, but the idea is the same. The only thing I don’t like is cutting potatoes into this dish, but the dish is worth it. Your loved ones are lucky.

  4. I prepared potato gratin the other day & loved every bite of it. I’ll surely try this one soon… The sour cream is tempting, mixed with cheese flavor.

  5. This is really helpful, loved the read, so thank you for sharing! But now I am hungry and in need to cook some foods 😀
    And Happy New year! 😀

  6. This looks so tasty. Anything potatoes and I am in. As I don’t/can’t eat garlic and onion, do you think it will still taste ok? Some dishes work well without it, some not so much. This seems to call for garlic 🙂

  7. well potatoe dishes are not popular here,unless its french fries,potatoes chips,or boiled potatoes that we mix together with soup,,,but me and my wife love mashed potatoes,,,i will make some this christmas
