Total hit at my house! The combo of the taste of scalloped potatoes and hash browns was great! Even reheated the next day was good. Made this for DH's birthday at his request for scalloped potatoes. We did add an extra cup of cheese and it was perfect! I forgot to do the cornflake topping, but no one missed it! EDIT: I made these a second time with cream of celery since I didn't have the cream of chicken handy. I much prefer them with the cream of chicken.
I liked the flavors of this recipe! It was very taste. however I was surprised by the amount of butter/oil and liquid it made. I was expecting a dryer product. I would add more cheese ,at least another cup, and 1/2 the butter in the recipe.Maybe even cut the amount of milk by some. The Flavor and the ease to cook in the crock pot makes this recipe worth playing with!I will probably try this again when I am in a creative mood.Thank you for posting! I had to update stars because the next day the potatoes had absorbed the juice and it was awesome! I am making it again right now!
We like it ok but I dont think it was creamy enough for my family. I omitted the salt and it was still a bit on the salty side - I would probably use low-sodium soup if I made this again. For a creamier taste I might use cream cheese in it also.
