Cheesy Potatoes W/ Corn Flakes

"This is a staple at our summer grill-outs. It's easy and can be prepared the day before, then baked when you need it. I use reduced fat cheddar cheese, light sour cream and 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup."

    If you double the recipe, do you still only cook it for an hour

    omitted the stick of butter in the mixture, didn't think it needed it...<br/><br/>I used a 16 oz container of French onion chip dip instead of sour cream.<br/>Gave it an extra kick...

    I add one more cup of corn flakes and I crush them in a one gallon ziplock bag using a rolling pin.

    I *LOVE* this recipe. This is the same recipe my mom uses for family get-togethers. I made a smaller and gluten free version of this recipe for dinner (you can find it under my recipes if you are curious).

    I made this but added bacon and used capecod potato chips instead of the cornflakes to add crunch and salt! It came out amazing!

    Instead of cornflakes, I crushed up the dredges of a bag of plain potato chips and used those.
