I am famous for this casserole and it is DEMANDED of me at gatherings. Following it to the letter (I use Kellogg's crumbs instead of mashing up the cornflakes myself) will produce mouth watering results. Also, another fun thing is that you can change around which soup that you put in it to alter the flavor. I like it with cream of broccoli, a mix of cream of chicken and cream of mushroom, I've mixed cheese soup and cream of potato, I've tried cream of onion....you can really play around with it. I like using two cans sometimes as well. It's truly my favorite dish in the world to eat!
This is delicious and my 17 yo DS just can't get enough of this casserole. I used refrigerated bag of hash browns (20 ounces) so no thawing required and also only used 1/2 of the butter. I used 2 tablespoons of butter with with chopped onion and cooked them for a minute in the microwave to soften them and then used 2 tablespoons of melted butter with the crushed corn flakes and it worked out wonderful!! :-) Thanks for sharing your recipe!! Made for PAC Fall 09.
This recipe and funeral pies have been served at almost every Irish 'wake' I have ever been to. A real crowd pleaser!
This a great recipe, but not exactly " new". It is a standard at our church for potluck dinners, some people call them " funeral potatoes".
I strongly recommend sweating/sauteing the onions prior to mixing in - otherwise they have a rather strong, raw taste. Other than that, perfect! Will finish the leftovers tonight!
My husband made this as a side to pork chops on one of our first dates 22 years ago. It is known in our inner circle as "Drew's Potatoes". He uses cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom. It's his standard pot luck dish - and the only dish he's willing to make that has more than two ingredients, it's that easy and delish. Can't go wrong with these potatoes!
Better with cream of chicken soup!
One of our family favorites. I have also used the O'Brien Hash Browns (with bell peppers) and we enjoy it that way as well. Turns out really pretty with the different color peppers. I have also made it and added chopped ham and served as a breakfast dish. This is an easy receipe to throw together and one that is rarely left over at our famiy pot luck dinners!
My family gobbled this up for dinner. I didn't have corn flakes so used bread crumbs. Made for Holiday tag.
AWESOME!!! Followed recipe to the letter and would not change a thing! Thanks for sharing this-it's a real winner.
