Chruch Potatoes AKA Hashbrown Casserole

Hi everyone, hope your holiday was wonderful! Ours was very quite, which sometimes is nice. I do miss taking the girls to see the fireworks, but that is fine too. Today I want to share one of our favorite recipes with you. We call them Church Potatoes because you will usually find these somewhere on the buffet line at a funeral luncheon. Let's get started making them, shall we!
First you melt your butter...
Than add the sour cream, cream of chicken soup, salt, pepper....
Mix all of this together well, than add the mild shredded Cheddar cheese and chopped onion....
Mix that all together well. Than add your thawed, shredded hash browns....
Mix it really well so everything gets covered.......
Than spread into a greased 9" x 13" pan. Set aside.
Now put some of your cornflakes into a baggie and crush them however fine or coarse you prefer. I use a baggie so clean up is easier. After you measure your crushed cornflakes, set aside and melt more butter.......
Now add your crushed cornflakes and stir well so that they get covered with all that butter goodness.....
Now spread over your hash brown mixture......
Well darn it all, I forgot to take a picture of the finished casserole, ugh. Try to image the last picture of the casserole all nice and brown and bubbly!!!

Church Potatoes
2 pounds frozen shredded hash brown, thawed completely
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream
2 cups shredded, mild Cheddar cheese
Combine all of the above ingredients. Spread into a greased 9 x 13" baking dish. Spread topping over.
Topping
1 1/2 cup crushed corn flakes
1/4 cup melted butter (1/2 stick)

Combine and sprinkle over top. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Serves 16. I usually only get about 10 servings out of mine, we must be pigs at my house!
Thanks for dropping in to see what was going on, I appreciate you taking the time to visit with me, have a great day!! Mary

LOL, we must be pigs, too, because we'd never get 12 servings out of that either!
Looks so yummy! I haven't had those in years, but I LOVE them!
