Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Potato #Casserole: DOCTER’d POTATO CASSEROLE from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is DOCTER’d POTATO CASSEROLEI!

I wish I could tell you specifically where this recipe originated. A family member shared it with me. She got it from someone else and so on and so on. Considering the ingredients, I’m sure it probably came from a package somewhere. But, no matter where it originated, it is delicious. A wonderful, EASY, potato casserole that will satisfy your family as a side dish or a crowd at a BYO party, or add meat and turn it into a one-pot supper!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

[Makes 9 x 13″ casserole]

1 large package frozen hash brown potatoes

1 pint sour cream

1 can cream of chicken soup

1/2 cup chopped onion *

shredded cheddar cheese **

2 cups crushed corn flakes or Crispix cereal

1/4 cup melted margarine or butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix hash brown potatoes, sour cream, chicken soup, and onion well. Place in large casserole dish, sprayed with cooking spray. Top with cheese, then corn flakes or Crispix. Then, dribble melted butter over the top. Cook in 400 degree oven for 1 hour, covered. Remove cover. Cook additional 1/2 hour, uncovered, until cheese is toasted and everything’s bubbly.

* We love onion in our house, so I use a lot more, up to 1/2 large onion.

** Our preference is sharp cheddar for a deeper cheese flavor. For a change in flavor, you can try other cheeses your family enjoys.

NOTE: To turn this into a one-pot supper, add chunks of chicken or ham to the casserole before putting into the casserole dish. Be aware that this will definitely overflow the 9×13″ dish, so you’ll want a larger, deeper casserole to accommodate the additional ingredients.

Happy Eating!

  1. We call those “funeral potatoes” in Utah and they’re scrumptious. Agree, it is too much for just two people. But sometimes I add diced ham and turn them into a casserole that we can eat for several days!

    1. I’ve heard of “funeral potatoes” and wondered if this was the recipe. Now, I know. Thanks, Shirley. I do love to turn it into a casserole with meat, too. Just have been cutting way back on potatoes in recent months. I’ll have to make it one of these days though, now that I’ve been reminded of the dish. LOL
