We call this potato casserole “Football Potatoes” because we love to serve it with a big fat grilled filet after a football game, but it would also be great for Thanksgiving this week.

This might be our all-time favorite potato casserole.  It is SO creamy and delicious.  This casserole is not diet food by any means.  It has cream of chicken and mushroom soup, sour cream and butter!  I do use 98% fat free soup and light sour cream – every little bit helps!  Since there are only two of us, I usually divide the mixture between three 8-inch foil pans and freeze two for later.  It makes for a super quick side dish later!

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups corn flakes, crushed
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

  2. Mix all ingredients, except corn flakes and cubed butter. Spread into a lightly greased 9×13 pan.  Top with crushed cornflakes and dot with cubed butter.
  3. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.

notes

*I mix the potato casserole together and divide it between three 8-inch disposable foil pans and put two unbaked casseroles in the freezer for later.  I don't put the corn flakes on the casserole until I am ready to bake it.  On the day I bake the potatoes, I let the casserole thaw in the refrigerator all day or let it sit out on the counter for about an hour before baking.*

  1. I make this all the time with frosted flakes instead of cornflakes. Mix frosted flaked with melted butter then put on top and bake. The frosted flakes make this dish to die for!

  2. Hi Steph! I'm making this creamy potato casserole as a side for dinner tonight. I can't wait to try it as I'm on a quest to find the perfect casserole like this one that is to the liking of all my family members! (*sigh*) Several years ago I was given a similar recipe from an elderly lady at church that I'd like to share with you. You may already know of it, but if not…give it a try…it's yummy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Miss Jena's Potluck Hash Browns

    2 c. corn flakes, crushed
    1 stk. unsalted butter, melted
    Preheat oven 350ยฐ; spray 9" x 13" baking dish.
    In bowl, combine first 4 ingredients; mix well; pour and spread evenly into prepared dish.
    In same bowl, combine corn flakes and melted butter; mix well; sprinkle on top of potato mixture.

    Thanks for the creamy potato casserole recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Steph! I just wanted to let you know this was a HUGE hit with ALL my family members! ๐Ÿ™‚ It will now be my go-to! The only things I did differently was I thawed my potatoes (I use the O'Brien for more flavor) and cooked them for a bit in the microwave because my husband has an aversion to "crunchy" potatoes. This really softens them up. I also didn't put in the stick of melted butter because when I've done this before it's always turned out really "greasy" on me. Instead I just mixed in about 1 c. of shredded cheese. It was absolutely awesome. I think next time I'm going to try combing this recipe and Miss Jena's and see how that comes out! Like you, I LOVE French onion dip! Thanks again for the recipe and I hope you have a wonderful Easter! ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. Hi Stephanie! Did you ever try the French onion dip? I just thought about it because I'm making your creamy potato casserole for Mother's Day today! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. ty Stephanie and may i comment on this is the first time i have seen a picture of you and you are beautiful. And your recipes are so delish i follow you on plain chicken all the time.

  4. mkkiki – I cook them about the same time. The smaller pans take about 30-35 minutes. I usually bake them frozen for 45 minutes.

  5. Stephanie you said you did in 3 8×8 pans but then u say 9×13 is the cooking shorter in the 8×8 pans boy when your a new cook like me i can really think of some crazy ?s to ask you hope you dont mind. I get you on my email could you email me as i just know i will never relocate this site.
