Cheesy Corn Flake Potatoes

This yummy recipe definitely isn't for the diet-conscious! Paula Dean would be so proud.


  • 2 lbs. frozen hash browns, thawed or 6 potatoes, peeled, boiled, and diced
  • Advertisement

  • 2 sticks butter or margarine (1 cup)
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese (I prefer sharp)
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • salt and pepper, to taste (I usually leave out the salt since soup, cheese, and butter each contain plenty of salt).
  • 2 cups cornflake crumbs


Place potatoes in 9x13 inch baking pan. Melt one stick butter and pour over potatoes. Mix together sour cream, cheese, soup, onion, salt, and pepper. Pour over potatoes.

Crush enough cornflakes to yield 2 cups crumbs and mix with one stick melted butter. Pour crumbs over second layer of cheese, soup, onion, and seasonings. Bake one hour in 350 degree F oven. Freezes well.

Servings: 12 to 15
Prep Time: 10-15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 1 Hours

Sounds really delicious Jo. Who wouldn't like good Scalloped Potatoes with sharp cheddar cheese? I'm not hungry at all right now, but if I smelled this cooking, I could get hungry in a hurry.

Thanks to you for sending us the recipe and to your good friend for sharing it with you.

Thumbs up to you both.

Sounds so perfect and comforting, JPJ! I am not a cereal eater and don't want an entire box to go to waste so will 'sugar borrow' the cornflakes from a neighbor who I know does eat them ;-) Oh, and I love sharp cheddar too!

This looks like a dish my friend used to make for pot lucks at church.


I hope it is, I haven't had it for years and it was de-lish! GG Vi
