Cheesy Potato Casserole


This recipe is from one of my favorite blogs,Cooking with Karin, and would be a great addition to your Easter dinner on Sunday.  We love potato casseroles and this one was no exception.  It was creamy, cheesy and, most of all, delicious!  This makes a ton (10-12 servings).  I always divide the potato mixture between 3 foil pans and freeze two for later.  It is such a timesaver! 




Cheesy Potato Casserole
serves 10-12
(Printable Recipe)

1 (30oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes
16 oz regular or reduced-fat sour cream
1 10 3/4-ounce can regular or reduced-fat condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups corn flakes, crushed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine sour cream, cream of chicken soup, pepper and cheese in a large bowl. Fold in the hash browns and pour into a 3-quart casserole that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

**At this point, I divide the potato mixture between three 8x8 foil pans and freeze two of them.  I cover the pans with saran wrap and foil and pop them in the freezer.  I put a pan in the refrigerator on the morning that I want to serve them so they thaw out a little.**

Combine the melted butter or margarine with the crushed corn flakes and sprinkle over top. Bake for 45 minutes.

  7. It looks and sounds delicious and my eye was really caught by the piece of meat behind it. I have to believe the leftover casserole would be great for breakfast topped with an egg.

  9. That is an oldie but a goodie. Everyone has their own version and name. My sister calls the Funeral Potatoes because she always brings them to the funeral luncheons. I know it's morbid! But we all love them. I prefer to call them Harvest potatoes.

  10. Cheez Whiz has a storied and amazing history. It was invented by the same guy who developed McDonald's French Fry process. Check out the original promotional pamphlet that introduced Cheez Whiz on my blog: http://thevodkaparty.com/new-cheez-whiz-believe-it-or-not-there-was-a-time-before-cheez-whiz/ It’s overflowing with incredible original Cheez Whiz recipes.

  14. In WV we call this "Hash Brown Casserole. Instead of sour cream we use french onion dip. It makes it more Kid friendly!
