Cornflake Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by appreciated cook

My Sister-in- Law gave me this recipe years ago and everyone in my family loves it. It is great for potlucks, large gatherings, or cut down for just a family. It is really easy to make and makes great leftovers. I use Colby-Jack cheese, finely shredded, but any cheese will do.

This is a favorite recipe for big family meals. However, I use a 2-lb. bag of hashbrowns (either cubed or shredded) instead of using fresh potatoes. Also, mix the soup, sour cream and butter together, and spread on top of potatoes. Next is the cheese, and then the dry cornflakes. Bake for about 1 hour.
