My husband and I loved this! I made it with cream of chicken soup and used less sour cream and butter. I used 50% reduced fat sour cream and butter. I also mixed the cheese throughout and added a little on top. I left it in the oven about ten minutes longer so the cheese could brown on top. Finally, there is no need to thaw hashbrowns as you could break the frozen potatoes down with the hot soup mixture when mixing.

I am sorry to say this, but this was horrible. I made it for dinner and it was pretty bad, we ended up dumping it. Maybe I did something wrong, but my husband and I found it unedible. Sorry :-(

This recipe is always a big hit at picnics/family gatherings, etc. I use O'Brian hash browns (they have red and green peppers and onions)and I don't use green onions. They make the casserole much better and more flavorful. I use cream of celery soup instead of Cr. of potato. Great recipe!

We loved this recipe. I know it is a vegetarian recipe and is good as is as a side dish, however, for this to be an easy and complete meal, we added a cup or so of cooked, cubed ham. We also added a can of cream of chicken soup. The result was a creamy and tasty dinner. Good amount of everything and will make again. i must also add that it is really easy. Worth a try with meat or not. Thanks Linda!! My family appreciates it!!

This was the best potato dish I've made so far....It was very creamy with lots of flavor. I did'nt have green onions but added chopped onions in the mix.Need to brown the onions to soften them before baking. Thanks for the recipe!

Very hearty dish, but a little too greasy (I recommend omitting the butter). As other reviewers suggested, I used light sour cream, light cheddar cheese, and light margarine to lessen the fat and also used cream of chicken and mushroom soup. Also added more onions and some garlic to spice up the otherwise somewhat bland sauce. Also added some cooked crumbled turkey bacon. My boyfriend, a meat and potatoes kind of guy, loved it, served with steamed broccoli.

My husband thought this was a store bought dish! It's quick, easy, and so very tasty. The next time I make this casserole, I am going to sprinkle the top with some crispy bacon, since it tastes so much like a baked potato!

I've tried to get this recipe from my sister-in-law for years. Finally got smart enough to look on Thanks, it is great. A note about thawing potatoes first. I had it recently at someone's and they did not thaw them. It was not good as the potatoes were not done. Thawing was a great hint. Again, great easy recipe.
