Cheesy potato bake

A really nice and simple side dish is a cheesy potato bake.

Start by melting a tablespoon or two of butter with a tablespoon or two of olive oil over medium heat in an oven safe pan:

While that is melting, slice your potatoes (I used about 5 medium sized russets) and preheat the oven to 350F:

Melt the butter and olive oil until the butter is bubbly:

Take the pan off the heat and start to lay in your potatoes:

Sprinkle in your favorite cheese, in this case I used shredded Colby jack and sharp cheddar:

Layer on more potatoes, black pepper and cheese and repeat until the pan is full :

Bake in oven until the potatoes are tender and the cheese is a golden brown.

Let it sit to cool a few minutes and serve.
