"My family loves this and I make it on regular rotation, it's so easy to make just mix everything in one large bowl then bake, you may prepare the complete casserole and refrigerate until ready to bake, which makes this a perfect potluck dish! --- I have even made this using frozen french fries that I cut up into small pieces when I had no hash browns on hand and can also be made using cooked cubed potatoes --- cream of chicken soup may be used in place of mushroom soup, you may even throw in some chopped cooked ham or chicken also, I most always increase this by using two cans of soup, 1-1/2 cups sour cream and using half a 5-pound bag of hash browns --- you will love this! :)"

"GREAT recipe. Made for a church brunch and it was the first dish gone. I omitted onions. Topped with about 1 cup of cheddar jack cheese (that's all I had). Such good flavor."
"Loved by everyone on Easter Sunday! The only thing I'd change for next time is pull back a bit on the seasoning salt and sub in regular salt. (A funny note: my son asked what the "little white round things" were in the potatoes..the white parts of the green onions...I gasped and said "So that's where all my tiny rubber bands went!")"
"Love this recipe. Thanks for posting!"
"Great recipe! However, I shred my own potatoes with a coarse shredder and soak them in water first to remove the starch. I also sometimes use a Velveeta cheese sauce instead of cheddar - omitting the cream of mushroom soup. Comes out a bit more creamy. Also, as I always do, I sub out the sour cream for plain Greek yogurt."
"A perfect, comforting and creamy casserole that goes with just about anything. Super easy to make with not many ingredients to gather makes this one of those dishes that get so many compliments - people think you slaved in the kitchen, it's that good!! I did double the recipe (twin 16 yr old boys with hearty appetites!) using frozen cubed potatoes, but added an additional can of cheddar cheese soup with the 2 cans of cream of mushroom since I was out of milk. I also sautéed sweet onions with 4 or 5 cloves of minced garlic before mixing it all together since we are garlic freaks.<br/><br/> Absolutely awesome recipe that lends itself well to changing things up a bit due to preferences or not having listed items."
"Kittencal, Have come to the decision, when I see your name.....I already know, I can count on the recipe. it's pretty bad, when my family says "is Kittencal cooking today"?<br/><br/> The first time I made these, I forgot the butter, and only had frozen French fries in the house...it was yummy! great recipe for brunch, pot lucks and Christmas Morning. The only thing I. Have changed, is I use cooking spray instead of butter and I add in bacon bits (forgot the brand I use, I. Buy them from Costco, they taste like fresh cooked bacon, and cuts down on the fat). thank you again, for visiting my kitchen!"
"This was wonderful ! I used chicken soup and omitted any extra salt,"
"FANTASTIC recipe! changed it just a tad, added bacon bits probably a bit more cheese, cut the butter in half (based on other reviews) and only used the green onion. OH! the smells coming out of the oven :) Hubby absolutely loved it. Next time going to try to bake in cupcake tin and freeze individually for future weekday breakfast. Will update with results. Thanks again"
"Kittencal, I love your recipes, but this is the first one that I really didn't care for. It turned out really greasy and salty, and although the overall flavor of it was good, I just couldn't eat more than a spoon (shame, since there's now a whole pan of it). My husband liked it, though, so I split the difference and went with 3 stars."
"I've made this recipe many times. I usually add some crispy cooked bacon to the casserole and decrease the onions. I then top with French's fried onions for a nice flavorful crunch."
"Excellent potato casserole. Very cheesy. I didn't change a thing."
"This is SO GOOD! And couldn't be easier. I made it tonight and couldn't even wait til it cooled down to try it. So yummy! I had to leave out the onion as mine had expired... next time I'll add it to see which variaton I like better. Thank you for sharing this one :)"
"This was delicious, Kittencal! My in-laws came for Easter dinner and everybody loved it...and a break for me not having to peel potatoes! The seasoning was spot-on!"
"Yum! Great for pot-lucks."
"This recipe was super tasty! My husband thought we should have added some bacon to it, but it was packed full of flavor. It definitely is a huge casserole, and could easily serve eight and allow for seconds. Thanks for sharing!"
"The flavor was yummy but the consistency of my casserole was mushy and a bit greasy. I will make it again and try cooking it longer. I will also let it come to room temp before I bake it (it was refrigerated for about 2 hours and didn't sit out for longer than 15 minutes). I may also cut the butter back a little as well. Easy and tasty though!"
"Really good. I make this once a month now. I would make it more often, but we are all trying to lose a little weight. We look forward to this dish every month as a treat!"
"Absolutely delicious! Kittencal, I've already come to the conclusion that if you post a recipe and say it's good, I can count on it. :} I decided to make a brunch for Christmas Day and included this. It was a huge hit. I'll be making this again and again....and easy!"
"Made these tonight for dinner with a baked ham. This casserole was a snap to make and very, very delicious. I used fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder, cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom (was out of mushroom soup), added a can of sliced mushrooms, only used 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese (because we don't like too much parm) and did not add the green onions because yet again, I was out of those. It was still wonderful! Comfort food at its finest. Thank for for yet another wonderful recipe Kittencal!"
