Last year I used an almost identical recipe that my daughter & her boyfriend both disliked, but this year my daughter said if I made it similar to our local grocer's Texas Cheesy Casserole, they would eat it. I was able to get a print out from the grocer's deli and the ingredients were similar to yours, except that I had to use Red Potatoes, dried onion, and leave out the corn flakes which I personally like, but the kids think are awful! Mine took much longer to cook, I think because of the fresh potatoes; after an hour at 350 degrees, we took off the foil, upped it to 375, and it took about another half hour. I think going with the dried onion was a great exchange, much easier than all that fuss and no overpowering onion taste problem like some others reported. I cut back on the butter to 1/3 cup total which I used to coat the inside of the pan then melted the rest and added to the mixture, but when the casserole was finished there was still way too much butter! It was floating on top of the casserole and I took several paper towels and soaked it up after which it was fine. I thought it was a smidgen bland, but the kids (I say kids but the youngest is 20) all loved it and gobbled it down. There were no leftovers:(
