Cheesy Potato Casserole

On Sunday we decided to make a delicious ham dinner. I love ham dinners during Christmas time (especially the leftovers) and it gave me the perfect opportunity to experiment with side dishes. After searching through my numerous cookbooks, I came across a recipe given to me by a lady in our first married ward. It seemed very easy and our mouths were watering with each bite! I can't believe I waited this long to give it a try! The green onions made this dish extra yummy!

1 large package of hash browns
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 pint of sour cream
1 cube butter/margarine
1/4 cup chopped green onions (or 2 Tbsp onion flakes)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp melted butter
1 cup crushed cornflakes


On the stove mix soup, sour cream, and cube of butter. Heat and stir until well mixed. Add onions and cheese, stir until melted. In a 9 by 13 baking dish, layer the potatoes and soup mixture. Top with crushed cornflakes that have been mixed with the melted butter. Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to bake or bake immediately at 350 for 30 minutes.


  1. How Funny, I make this dish on a monthly basis and it's one of our friends favorite dishes that I make!!! Yummy... my recipe for these are called Church potatoes :)I used to have them EVERY year at our church Christmas party when I was a child!!!

  2. haha, in iowa, these potatoes are called "funeral potatoes" because someone always brings them to a funeral luncheon or makes it for someone who has lost a loved one. they are delicious and an amazing comfort food!
