These are a popular dish here in Utah. I grew up in California and had never heard of them or eaten them until I moved here. I’m sure you can guess the origin of these potatoes based on their name. They were supposed to be for our neighborhood Christmas party last night but right before the party started, I started feeling light headed and had to go lie down so we never made it to the party and neither did the potatoes. I don’t know where I got this recipe from originally. There are many variations floating around but these are always the kind that I make.
1 (32 oz) bag frozen hash browns (the chunky kind, not the shredded kind, I think they’re called “Southern style”)
2 (10 3/4 oz) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups crushed corn flakes (I have had these with crushed up crackers on top too)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Put hash browns into a greased 9 x 13″ pan. Combine soup, sour cream, cheese and 1/2 cup melted butter. Gently blend into hash browns. Combine corn flakes and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle on top of potatoes. Bake for 30 minutes or until heated through.
