"I omitted the corn flakes...yuck. Turned out great! Thanks for sharing this!"
"DH and DS gobbled up this casserole. The texture was creamy and the the topping added a nice contrast. The flavor was wonderful with the cheese and onion flavors dominating. I'll be making this again."
"DH and I loved this recipe. I always look for recipe that I can make from supplies I have on hand. This was just the recipe. Loved the crunch on top. Will definately make again."
"Fantastic. It's just like Mother's recipe that is my family's favorite csserole. Easy, creamy, delicious and goes well with any meat main dish. I'd give it 6 stars if I could. This is definitely a winner, KC! "
"Very good! The flavor of onions comes through the strongest, I think. I made it with the frozen hash browns and then re-froze the casserole. Completely thawed the day before serving and cooked it in the crockpot. 4-5 hours on low. Oh, and I didn't top it with anything."
"Yummy! I baked it at 375 and substituted 1/2 cup cottage cheese for 1/2 the sour cream. I just wish I could make the bottom and top crust crispier."
"Tried this for In-Laws yesterday morning. It met the need for a potato breakfast side, but I found it somewhat boring. It DID make a big 9x13, and I'll be eating on it for next several days."
"I am acquainted with a group of ladies who love to potluck and this is always a favorite."
"Yummy! Hashbrown Casserole HAS to be at each potluck :) Great, solid recipe that everyone loves, thanks for posting!"
"My DH and kids love this casserole when my SIL makes it for the holidays but I've never made it. I had a big bag of frozen hash browns I needed to use up so I gave this recipe a shot. This is not for the calorie conscious :-) so I halved the butter and the creamy soup and added in some milk for a little more moisture. You could probably use chicken broth, too. I was also too lazy to chop the onions so I used a packet of dry onion soup mix. Wasn't sure my kids would like it but they loved it. Next time I would use maybe only half the packet (especially because it and the soup both contain msg and we're trying to cut down). This recipe lends itself to "customization". Thanks for posting it, now we won't have to wait for the holidays to enjoy it!"
"I made this today for our family reunion picnic. My Aunt said this in resonse: " I am becoming more impressed every time you cook.! Your becoming more and more like you aunt!" My Aunt is a caterer! anyway, everybody loved them. I never used processed potatoes, but will make an exception for this recipe. Will definitely make again, maybe add some more cheese!"
"This is a long-standing favorite in our family. I cut the butter to 1/4 cup and add leftover ham. Also, for a different topping, it's a great way to use up the smashed potato chips that are always left in the bottom of the bag - actually the preferred topping! When freezing for a later date, I leave off the topping until just before putting in the oven."
"OMGoodness!! This was so wonderful and flavorful! I really powdered the cornflakes, as I think they come out a little on the chewy side. Maybe next time, I'll only use 1 cup of cornflakes. Otherwise, this is such a winner!! My 3 guys loved it and ASKED for the leftovers!!"
"this is good with a few changes...i buy the potatoes o'brien so you do not have to worry about chopping onion. I also up the sour cream to 16oz and leave out the butter. i don't necessarily think it is needed. to make the topping, all you have to do is melt the butter in the microwave and add crushed corn flakes. there is no need to saute them. They brown nicely in the oven although they do have to be mixed with the butter so that they do not burn."
"Excellent. I don't like a dry hashbrown casserole so I addd about 1/4 cup of milk. Otherwise I followed the recipe. Very yummy. Thanks."
"I was looking for a good recipe to alter to my family's tastes and this was perfect. I left out the 1/2 cup butter and added about 1 cup cubed velveeta. I also added onion and garlic powder instead of the chopped onions. I didn't add the topping because I forgot to buy cornflakes but next time for sure."
"Excellent!! Served at Christmas dinner and was a hit. Nothing left to bring home."
"Absolutely delicious! Made it for Christmas dinner and got rave reviews from everyone. This will definitely be a regular at the holidays! Great warmed up, too."
