Cheesy Potatoes


These Cheesy Potatoes are excellent for an everyday meal and especially for a potluck. I was given this recipe over 15 years ago at a function I attended. This recipe makes more than two pounds of cheesy potato goodness! Add the crunchy crushed Corn Flakes mixed with butter topping and oh so good! Simple to make and it disappears fast!



Cut off 2-1/2 Tbl from the stick of butter, set aside for the topping.


Melt the 5-1/2 Tbl of butter.


Pour potatoes into a large bowl.


Add butter to potatoes and mix.


In another bowl, add soup, cheddar cheese, onion and sour cream.


Mix cheese mixture together.


Mix cheese mixture with potatoes. Pour into a 3 quart casserole baking dish.


Crush Corn Flakes into crumbs. I put the Corn Flakes in a bag and roll over them with my rolling pin.


In a small bowl melt the 2-1/2 Tbl of butter.


Using a fork, mix butter into the crushed Corn Flakes.


Spread the Corn Flakes on top of the potatoes.


Bake at 425 degrees, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until top is golden brown but not burnt. Put a lid on potatoes and bake for another 15-20 minutes but no longer than one hour total. Remove lid and let sit for 5 minutes then serve.
