Potato Casserole


Sometimes this is called cheesy potatoes and in Utah it is often called "funeral" potatoes because it is a great dish for funeral luncheons. I just made this for the funeral luncheon of my neighbor who was a wonderful cook and a great neighbor. It is a yummy, cheesy side dish.

Melt 1 cube butter, 1 can cream of chicken soup and 1 pint of sour cream. Mix it with 24-36 ounces of frozen hash browns, thawed, and 2 c. grated cheese. Pour into a 9" x 13" pan. Crush 1 c. corn flakes and mix with 2 T. melted butter. Sprinkle on top of potatoes. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes. (You can also boil or bake 8 potatoes, cool them and grate them instead of using frozen hash browns.)

Love this casserole. I use the homestyle cubed potatoes, usually. I think it takes longer, but I love that texture. Seems like one recipe I have puts a smidge of cream cheese and green onion. Nice and versatile!

This is one of my favorite favorite potato recipes of all times. Coincidentally I was just talking about this several days ago with my brother who made it for his daughter who immediately told him that this was "Auntie's" recipe!! LOL. I used both the hash browns and the cubed pototes, depending what I can find. Both work well. LOVE this stuff. Now I want it....
