To me there’s nothing more delicious than the combination of potatoes, cheese, and sour cream mixed and melted in a casserole. Easy-Peasy Potato and Cheese Casserole is easy to fix, and a versatile dish. If you need a gluten-free option, it can be tweaked and made to suit your taste. If you aren’t big on onion flavor, you can leave them out, and the dish still tastes unbelievable.
If you’re looking for a casserole that’s a cinch to prepare, this is it. Instead of spending loads of time chopping and dicing potatoes and onions, grab a bag of the frozen diced hash brown potatoes in the freezer aisle, and a container of sliced onions in the produce section. The preparation is as easy as taking the ingredients out of the bag when you get home from the store. I usually have most of the ingredients on hand. The potato casserole is a great dish to go along with any chicken, pork, or steak meal.
I’ve taken this dish to family and church potlucks, and people always ask me to bring it again next time, or for a copy of the recipe. The casserole is great side dish, and great for tailgate parties, birthday parties, baby showers, special occasions, or for any gathering with a large crowd. Think you’ll love this easy, gooey, cheesy casserole treat.
1 32 oz. bag of frozen diced hash brown potatoes
1 10.75 oz. can cream of chicken soup (this can be substituted with agluten-free cream of chicken soup, or left out of the recipe)
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
¾ cup of sour cream
¼ cup of diced onions
2-3 cups Corn Flakes (If you are trying to stick to a gluten-free diet,there are brands out there that have a delicious alternative to Corn Flakes)
1 stick of butter
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Begin by adding the entire bag of frozen cubed potatoes, cream of chicken soup, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, and diced onions in a large bowl. Mix the ingredients together until well blended. Don’t be afraid if it gets messy. If you’re like me, chances are you will sling a few potatoes around. Once the food is mixed, pour it all into a large casserole baking dish. Cover with Corn Flakes. Finally, melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and pour over the Corn Flakes. Bake in the oven for one hour.
