Cheesy Potatoes

These potatoes are pretty much the yummiest side dish ever!  There are so many variations on this dish, and I have tried it many different ways.  The great thing about it is that it makes a great dish OR a base for lots of mix ins.  Ideas for mix ins:  chopped ham, bacon, sausage, ground beef or any combination or your favorite veggies.  Personally, I like it the way it is or with cubed ham mixed in.

Gather Your Ingredients

1lb frozen potatoes, thawed (you can used shredded or southern style)
8oz sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 small onion, diced
crushed cornflakes or Ritz to cover top
melted butter to drizzle on top
salt and pepper to taste

Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375 and grease your baking dish.
  2. Combine soup and sour cream thoroughly, and then fold in the potatoes, onion and cheese.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Be cautious with salt though, the soup has a lot of salt in it already.
  3. Pour into baking dish and top with crushed cornflakes.  Drizzle with melted butter.
  4. Bake,covered, for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour (depending on your oven).  Take the foil off near the end of baking to help crisp up the topping.
