Some people may like this, but we ate it only because we never waste food. Despite my adding smoked paprika, sauteed yellow and green peppers, & crumbled bacon (also subbed real sharp cheddar for velveeta), it just tasted like defrosted hashbrowns with canned soup. There's some leftover that I'll brown up in the cast iron skillet for breakfast, and that might be better. Maybe if you browned the defrosted potato and skipped the soup it might be better, but I don't think I'll try this again..
Try using 2 cups cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup water. Soooooooo much better.
I love this dish! Evidently it's supposed to be a side dish, but I usually make it for breakfast.
Made this as a side dish last night. Thought it had very little flavor. Needs something to make it interesting.
Very easy and pretty tasty. It is not a very "elegant" dish, but a good solid alternative to mashed potatoes. Would be a nice complement to a steak or prime rib. I made it with cheddar cheese and otherwise exactly as written.
I'm trying this tonight but using fiesta nacho cheese soup and rotel that has been mixed up in the food processor. I'm using ground beef in the recipe as well, no onion though and I'm using potatoes o'brien for the hashbrowns. If it's good I will let ya'll know I think the rotel and some seasoned ground beef will help bring out the flavor!
I took this to a family Birthday party and most of us agreed that it needed soomething. Very bland would not make it again
I make this all the time for family dinners, and it always goes fast.
I did not particularly care for the cornflake topping, I will leave that off next time. I also thought it could use more flavor. Maybe using sharp cheddar instead of the Velveeta would be better.
my grandma taught me a recipe close to this, and it has been my 13 year old's favorite since he was a toddler. the only exception, we don't used processed cheese, we use 2 cups shredded cheddar, and no sour cream, this way it still has a nice potatoe texture, but not overly saucey. Also instead of crushed corn flakes, we use crushed potato chips, yummy!!!
This is absolutely delicious. Easy to assemble and leftovers are great. A favorite in my household!
I was a little disappointed. I felt like the potatoes were lost in the sauce. Maybe next time I will cut down on the amount of sauce, or add some more potatoes. It definately has potential, but it will need some tweaking.
Great recipe. I use non-fat sour cream and reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese to cut down calories. Still tastes great.
Loved this casserole! Super easy and so delicious! Took to a party and left with empty dish. I did add chopped green onions and crumpled up turkey bacon to create a big baked potato effect.
