Make a cheesy, creamy potato casserole for your next family gathering or holiday meal. Make it easy with frozen hash browns, cream of mushroom soup and cornflakes cereal. You can also make it ahead and refrigerate until you are ready to bake.
I am not sure why someone said 2 sticks of butter in this recipe. Not in the one I see. This recipe is also called Funeral Potatoes by some. I use cream of chicken (don't like mushrooms). I love this -- make sure the ratio of potato to the rest is correct -- I've seen people just toss in a bag of potatoes and lose the correct ratio. If you want a different twist, puree some green chilies and mix in with the cheese, sour cream, and cream of whatever soup. If you are used to eating a lot of salt and pepper on food, you may need to adjust for your taste. Yummy and great with many meals.
My family just gobbled this up! I didnt add the butter to the potatoes but I did toss it with the topping. I couldnt bring myself to add 2 sticks of butter to this dish! But you couldnt even tell I left it out. This can also be made in the crockpot. I added no butter as well and there was no topping. Just cook on high for about 4 hours. I always make this for potlucks. Always a winner!
I have been making this every year for our big Christmas party. It goes so fast I have to make two. I use the shredded hash browns, sometimes add a little extra cheese, if there's any left, and it always turns out great. One note: Our party is huge, so I have to plan ahead. I make the casseroles and place them in gallon ziplock bags. These freeze great too! When I'm ready to bake, I squeeze them out, top it with the corn flakes and let it warm to room temp before it goes into the oven. This is a no fail recipe.
