I tweaked this recipe a bit and it turned out great!! Instead of the canned cheddar soup, I used 2 cups of shredded Mild Cheddar cheese, mixed in 8 ounces of sour cream, and 1 can of cream of chicken soup, undiluted. Also just before serving time, I threw most of it into a greased baking dish, put crushed cornflakes doused in butter on top of that, and put it in the oven for about 10 minutes or so to crisp up the top. Fabulous! Will make this again. Very easy. Read More

These were bland so I called my friend who has a recipe that I had made before for these type of potatoes. So I added part of her recipe to it and what a difference this made. Wow. I added to this original recipe 1/2 cup of sour cream 1 can of cream of chicken soup 1 green onion (diced) and 1 stick of butter. Wow This gave it so more flavor. Read More

It was a hit at the pot luck. I did add 8oz. sour cream and 12oz shredded cheddar cheese. It was really good. I will start making this one instead of making it in the oven. Thank you for sharing your recipe Read More

I was very pleased with this recipe. I tried a couple variations based on other's reviews. I ended up with a mixture of the orginal recipe and other's suggestions. I added 1/2 c sour cream, 6 oz. evaporated milk, 1 stick of butter, and 8 slices of bacon (chopped). I omitted the sliced onion. This final recipe got rave reviews. **UPDATE-5/18/10** I still continue to make this recipe when an oven or oven space is not available!!! There are never any leftovers. :) In an attempt to make it more healthy, i made the following adjustments. I used lite sour cream, skim evaporated milk, and omitted the french fried onion. I replaced the bacon with 2T of "Tastefully Simple" Bacon Bacon. even with these changes to my recipe, it got rave reviews. I just love this recipe!!!!! Read More

I took the advice of others. I added 8oz of sour cream a bit of cajun seasoning salt pepper and some 'extra hot' seasoning. I also added a can of golden mushroom soup a can of cream of chicken soup a small can of mushroom bits and twice the amount of the french onions. My crockpot runneth over LOL but the potatoes were all gonein no time at all. Excellent!!!!! Since then I have added ham cubes and bacon bits to it and it was an even bigger hit! Read More

Just served this today at our company's holiday potluck and it was a hit. They were creamy and tasty. I took some suggestions from others and added sour cream then diced some ham and added that to make it more of a main dish. There's hardly any left! I will definitely make this again. Read More
