Cheddar and Sour Cream Roasted Potatoes have all the flavors of the chips on freshly roasted potatoes!
Cheddar and Sour Cream Roasted Potatoes are my new favorite side dish and I have to say I am pretty obsessed with them! They taste like the Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream potato chips but without any crazy ingredients and on deliciously crispy, hot, fluffy roasted potato wedges!
As a kind in junior high my school had the strangest after school snacks. One of the combos they had were cheddar and sour cream nachos. A bag of Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream chips were opened and nacho cheese sauce was added with a small spoonful of sour cream to finish it off. I know to a person who didn’t grow up with such a combination of ingredients it may sound awful, but it is one of the best memories of food in that school. Well, that and I did help out in the kitchen for about six months in the seventh grade and it was a lot of fun. I was meant to be cooking, even at a young age!
Even now if I have the ingredients on hand I always enjoy a bowl of these crazy nachos. These Cheddar and Sour Cream Roasted Potatoes have replaced those crazy cravings for me too!
Much like the awesome Cheddar Popcorn you all LOVE on this page (seriously, on an almost daily basis I see 2 or 3 of you ordering the 100% natural cheddar powder) these Cheddar and Sour Cream Roasted Potatoes are made with natural ingredients and still taste awesome! Want another totally nostalgic, but 100% real ingredient recipe you’ll love? Try my Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars. I dare you to try them and tell me they aren’t just like what you remember as a kid.
We originally made a giant tray of these potatoes, enough to fill up three plates this size. Then while I was setting up the shooting area and putting the little one down for a nap, potatoes started disappearing.
- 2 pounds russet potatoes , cut into 1 inch chunks
- 1/4 cup canola oil , divided
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese powder
- 2 tablespoons sour cream powder
- 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Kosher salt , to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl.
- In a large bowl add the potatoes to 3 tablespoons of the canola oil.
- Salt to taste.
- On a large cookie sheet spread out the potatoes.
- Roast for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
- While still hot add the last tablespoon of oil.
- Toss the potatoes and sprinkle on the dry mix of powders.
- Toss until totally coated.
- Check for salt, add as needed (this is so subjective, but I added ½ teaspoon before roasting and another ¼ teaspoon after)
- Serve immediately.
The powdered cheese & sour cream may seem to be a major investment, but they’re shelf-stable & they’ll be around for this & other recipes, ‘down the road’.
They’ll be useful ‘idea-makers’ for MANY other recipes!
I followed this recipe exactly. I even weighed my potatoes and bought the cheddar and sour cream powders from your link.
I carefully followed the recipe without adding ideas of my own.
After sprinkling the dry ingredients, I expected them to melt or something, but they just stayed in little lumps on the potatoes.
They were OK but nothing to brag about. What did I do wrong?
Hi Phyllis, did you toss the potatoes in the dry ingredients or sprinkle on top?
I sprinkled them and then tossed them.
Sabrina I have a question can you substitute regular sour cream in this recipe?
No, you need the powder for this recipe.
Wow love the idea of those potatoe. But, the prices on those powders are quite high. That dish has gotvbto ge expensive and they are hard to find. Any suggestions?
There’s a link in my recipe card to Amazon where I bought a big container for around $15. Hope this helps!

I am so sold on this recipe! It looks like something you get at a restaurant too!
Pinned!! These look and sound soooo amazing, and I’m thrilled to have a use for my cheddar cheese powder that isn’t popcorn! Nothing against popcorn of course. Just nice to have another option! 🙂

I LOVE those cheddar and sour cream chips, what an awesome idea to put that flavor onto roasted potatoes! Maybe slightly better for you too 🙂
I was really happy to be able to capture those flavors in cooked potatoes rather than chips!
My husband is a huge potato fan! These sound like potatoes that would be right up his alley for dinner with a steak!
Great idea, these would be perfect alongside a steak!
I tell you, I just love potatoes but sometimes feel like I always make the same ones, so this is awesome. I love the addition of cheddar, since it’s my favorite cheese. LOL. Thanks for sharing
There’s so many ways you can prepare potatoes than the usual standards! Glad I could give you some new ideas!
This recipe sounds So good! I’m always looking for new things to do with raw potatoes too so this is perfect!

Me too! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
Those look amazing, and not just because the photography is so beautiful (good job, btw). It’s so hard to get my boys to eat potatoes, so I have to sneak it in with great recipes like this one.
Thanks! I have kids of my own so I love making dishes kids can enjoy too!
Yum, that is an awesome side dish! We’d love them in our house.
Side dish??? My masshole!!!
Add some bacon, ham chunks, mushrooms, etc… VOILA… it’s a Main Dish!
