So yummy! This is a favorite of ours. I never buy frozen potatoes to make this though. I always just use my own potatoes peeled diced and par-cooked on stove-top before baking. I must have made a hundred times already and probably will make a few hundred more.
oh my gosh I just had this and it is sooooo good. Comfort food at it's best. I even used all lowfat/nonfat ingredients (fat free sour cream fat free condensed soup 1 cup fat free sharp cheddar 1 cup 2% sharp cheddar Simply Shredded frozen shredded potatoes lowfat wheat thins made into crumbs in the food processor 1/4 cup melted Smart Balance trans fat free margarine) and it was still SUPERB. I divided the mixture into 2 8"x8" pans and topped one with 1/2 the crumbs and 1/2 the melted margarine and baked it. The other pan is in the freezer with a baggy of the crumbs on top ready to bake for another scrumptious meal. YUM!
This was a really good casserole. The potatoes were very moist and had lots of flavor. As my son puts it the potatoes had yummy goop. I omitted the onion and it was great. I would say next time I am going to mix the butter in though because when you get the potatoes from the oven there is a inch of grease sitting on top that is very unappealing. So next time I will mix the butter instead of just drizzling it on top. Great recipe though and I will defiantly make it again!
Unbelievable!! Delicious!! I added a can of Campbell's Pepperjack cheese soup instead of the cream of chicken and used cornflakes instead of potato chips. Have made it twice now and everyone still rants! Don't forget to top it off with a little garlic salt! Thank you Bea!!
I prepared this recipe with fat free sour cream Health Request Chicken soup and fat free Lays chips. It was delicious and it got rave reviews from my spouse and son. It was great warmed up the second time too. Will definately make this again.
I make a version of this that my husband's side of the family asks me to make EVERY year for Christmas...they call them "those amazing potatoes". I buy the o'brien style of shredded hashbrowns that have the onion & green pepper in them. If you can't find them put in your own onion&green pepper...it adds alot of flavor. I never add butter to this dish with all the cheese sour cream & cream soup it's not necessary and you won't miss it trust me! I also like to add fresh minced garlic to the mix...and I also never bother thawing out the hashbrowns as this recipie implies (with the need to press out the excess water) just mix it all together with the hashbrowns in their frozen state. Other soups work nicely too. We have a vegetarian in the family so instead of cream of chicken I use cream of onion (great flavor booster!) cream of celery or cream of potato. Since I always double this for a crowd I use two different types of soup. Cr. of onion is my favorite though! If you want crispy browned edges remove the foil or lid half way through baking. When it's all bubbly & browned around the edges it's done. It takes a little over an hour and when doubled takes more like 1 1/2 hrs. or so. I also think the chips make it too greasy. 2 cups of coursely crushed corn flakes (cereal) mixed with 1/2 c. melted butter is better I think. If you use durkee fried onions put them on the last 10-15 min. or they will burn! Don't forget to spray baking dish w/nonstick spray!!!!

Not sure where I went wrong? It was not a hit in my house. My kids said it had too much onion flavor and I thought the chips on top were gross. I did use fresh potatoes because I had a ton of them in the pantry. Maybe you have to use frozen for it to taste right? Oh well...too bad.
