Good cheesy potatoes!! I don't feel I'm giving this recipe a fair rating because I was forced to make a substitution! I forgot about needing the sour cream for the recipe and used up the last of my sour cream to make Garlic Garlic dip by Tastefully Simple, so I used the dip in place of the sour cream!!!! You could definitely tell it was in there!!!! We still liked them, but can't wait to try the recipe the way it was meant to be! Thanks!

I have eaten these potatoes at many a potluck, so I'm very excited to finally have the recipe!! I'm not one to make alterations, but I found myself making many to this recipe. Two sticks of butter seems like WAY too much (maybe a typo?) so I only used 1/4 cup to saute the onions and 1/4 cup for the cornflakes. I also added a little less than 1/4 cup milk to the soup to make it creamier. My hubby is not a huge fan of sour cream, so I cut that down to only 1 cup. I also thought 2 cups of cornflakes would've been better (that's the best part!!) and I crushed them up slightly. With these alterations this recipe came out perfectly!! Thanks!
