What a depressing title for this blog post; right? I hate when popular ‘potluck’ foods are given the title ‘funeral “whatever”‘. I mean it is so depressing and totally turns me off from the food.
Mom’s Potato Casserole
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes Serves: 12
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 (28 ounce) bag shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
2 cups sour cream
2 (10 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups cornflakes crushed
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat. Add the thawed hash browns, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, cheese, 1/3 cup melted butter and pepper and combine well.
Spread the mixture into a 9×13 inch dish. Mix corn flakes with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle over hash brown mixture. Bake for 40 minutes or until the casserole is hot in the center and the cheese is bubbly throughout.
