    I tried these spuds years ago when a co-worker brought them. They were made with mashed potatoes. She informed me that was all she had, but they were delicious.<br/> <br/>I later found a recipe for them called "Cottage Potatoes" from a magazine. I made them once with Rice Crispies because I forgot to buy corn flakes. They were good but you could the cereal popping in the oven!! Seriously, it was funny.<br/><br/>I noticed some comments about the fat and caloric content. Kudos to those of you brave enough to be creative and make a healthier version. Personally, I feel, that unless you were eating multiple servings several times a day, this doesn't need to be an issue. Remember, this food is usually offered at special occasions, not a constant side dish. Most people I know can eat one serving and one serving only. It is very rich.

    My DS just loved these potatoes!!! I made this as written, other then changing the cheese to shredded cheddar cheese, as it was what I had on hand!! I served these as a side to my sloppy joes and jello with fresh sliced bananas, for my DS's 21st Birthday lunch!!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.

    Great easy recipe that everyone loved. I did not have cream of chicken soup, so used cream of celery. Also really liked that the onions were grated because the similar recipes we've tried in the past have chopped onion and they are never completely cooked, giving the dish a raw onion flavor. So a major thumbs up for grated onion! Made for Fall 2012 Pick A Chef.
