If you looked up comfort food in the dictionary this is what you'd find. I usually half this recipe and it's more than enough for the three of us, but I'm posting the recipe as it was given to me by a family friend. Kids love it and so do adults, it's sure to be a family favorite.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together butter, soup, sour cream salt and pepper.
  3. stir in cheese. I add the cheese little by little so that it all gets mixed in evenly and doesn't end up all over the counter.
  4. stir in potatoes, again little by little.
  5. Place mixture into a 9x13 baking pan.
  6. Bake for 60 to 90 minutes or until hot all the way through and a little brown around the edges.

These are great! I cut the calories in half by using 2% milk sharp cheddar and Swiss, low-fat sour cream, and the Mayo clinic's healthy cream of chicken soup substitute. I didn't even skimp on the butter (but next time I think I'll halve it). They still tasted every bit like comfort food.

Also: I didn't have the store-bought hashbrowns, so I just shredded some potatoes in the food processor. It took about 3 1/2 potatoes.

These potatatoes are very good. They were very cheesy! I took them to work and received many compliments on them. Will definately make again.

I was trying to recreate some cheesy potatoes that I once had in Ohio and although this wasn't quite the same, it was pleasantly delicious! I didn't have condensed chicken soup so I used chicken broth instead. I also only made a fourth of the recipe since I wasn't sure how the kids would received it but I am glad to say that we will be making the whole recipe next time. :)
