(Vegan) Cheezey Skillet Potatoes

(Vegan) Cheezey Skillet Potatoes by Custom Taste
Similar to potatoes au gratin, these are tastier and quicker. Cooking on the stove top with a cover allows for the moisture to soak into the potatoes rather than steam out. These are super simple and quick to make so when you get home from a long day at work a quick prep, put them on the stove top and wind down while dinner takes care of itself.
