This is a great dish that easily doubles for big parties or potlucks. Also it is a great and different change to mashed potatoes.
- 1 (2 lb) bag hash browns (thawed)
- 1 pint sour cream
- 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 1 cup margarine (softened) or 1 cup butter (softened)
- 1 cup of chopped onions or 1⁄2 cup dehydrated onion
- 1 cup corn flakes or 1 cup crushed cracker
- 1⁄4 cup of melted margarine or 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix all ingredients except the cornflakes or crackers and the 1/2 stick of melted butter together in a bowl.
- Grease 9x13 inch pan (you can use cooking spray) and add all ingredients from the bowl to the pan.
- Just before baking, mix the cornflakes or crackers and the 1/2 stick of melted butter together and then sprinkle on the top.
- Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
I have made company potatoes many times, but don't have a specific recipe; I just go to the internet and search for one. This was the first one that popped up. It was absolutely swimming in butter -- when cooked, there was a river of butter running all over the top. It was gross. I'm not one of those people who wants to lighten up an obviously rich and decadent recipe. But it would have worked with 1/2 the sour cream and 1/2 the butter, possibly no butter at all. After it cooled some, I tilted the casserole and poured a whole bunch of butter off of the top. Try a different recipe for what is normally a very delicious casserole.
Everything needed was in my cupboard.
A great tasting and simple recipe to make as a fantastic side dish.
