I Dare You

This is Mom's staple potato casserole recipe ... happens to be my favorite potato casserole recipe ... no one complains, EVER, about this one ... so go ahead, throw away your other potato casserole recipes. I dare you.
6-8 red potatoes, quartered (or use what you have and quarter them) 1/4 cup butter 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper 1 can cream of mushroom (or chicken, or celery) soup 8 oz. sour cream (or plain nonfat yogurt) 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese 1 1/4 cup herb seasoned dressing mix 1/4 cup butter Boil potatoes until tender. Cool. Mix melted 1/4 cup butter, salt, pepper, soup, and sour cream. Add potatoes and cheese to mixture. Mix well but try not to mash the potatoes. Put in greased dish. Mix 1/4 cup melted butter and dressing mix. Spread on top of potato mixture. Sprinkle paprika over it all to make it look pretty. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly and done.
