Great side dish for any meat dinner; can be served with your Easter ham, is a great substitute for the ordinary baked potato at your summer BBQ or can be served with any other dinner, anytime.

Very easy and yummy. I used 2 pounds of fresh diced potatoes and increased the cooking time by about 10 minutes and it was perfect! I substituted cream of celery soup for the cream of mushroom and it was delicious. I also doubled the onions and I used margarine instead of butter. My only comment is the casserole was quite oily - maybe that was because I used margarine. I think you could sugnificantly cut back on the margarine (maybe even eliminate it altogether) because the soup and sour cream mixture provides plenty of moisture. I also topped the casserole with another small handful of cheese when there was about 10 minutes of cooking time left. Bottom line - a big time hit at my house! Rich, creamy and cheesy!
