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.
