Potato Casserole: A Family Favorite

11th Heaven's Homaking Haven is hosting Homemaker Monday. Check out her blog for some other wonderful posts!

Here's a recipe for one of our family favorites.



Potato Casserole

Ingredients:

Frozen Hash Brown Potatoes or Frozen O’Brien potatoes

(thaw just long enough to break apart)

1 carton sour cream

1 can chicken of celery soup

2 cups sharp cheese-shredded or grated

Directions:

Mix all above ingredients together.

Topping:

Crushed Ritz Crackers (about one stack) or

Corn Flakes

1 stick of butter cut up

Bake for 2 hours at 350

Can be made up ahead and refrigerated. This also freezes well.


I usually make this at Thanksgiving when we go to my Aunt Gloria's and also at Christmas....and often for special birthday dinners through the year. It goes well with steak in place of baked potatoes.

That's got to be good; I love every single one of those ingredients, right up to the stick of butter. I'll put that on my list of dishes to try out!

I could eat my weight in that stuff! Well, almost ;)

This looks wonderful! I can't wait to try it. I just figured it out, and as far as Weight Watchers goes, it's only about 5 points a serving if you use fat free sour cream. Not bad at all! Especially for something so yummy!
