"These killer potatoes are great with meatloaf or as an accompaniment with anything! They are killer because of their delicious combination of potatoes, soup, sour cream and cheese."

condensed cream of chicken soup
crushed cornflakes cereal
This has been a favorite recipe in my family for years. Instead of putting crushed corn flakes on top, we usually put French's Cheddar French Fried Onions. Instead of adding two separate cans of cream of chicken, we just put in a 26 oz can in. Also, I find it easier mixing the potatoes, soup, sour cream and cheese in a bowl before adding it all to the pan.
Maybe I did something wrong, but this tasted awful! The chicken soup flavor was really overpowering. Other than the soup flavor, it was very bland. The potatoes lacked 'zing' themselves. Maybe it would have been better if I'd fried them first.
I used two similar recipes and tweeked them both a tad so I will review both. We really, really liked these potatoes. I used potatoes O'Brian (frozen with peppers and onion) and didn't add any additional onions. The small addition of green and red pepper made the dish look very nice. Next time, I will add some more onion or onion powder. Went well with BBQ sandwiches. Only used one can of cream of chicken soup. On top, I did a mixture of potato chips and corn flakes (good color) and think next time, I will also add some of those french fried onions in with the mix. I reduced the butter and also mixed it in. Think this would go well at a brunch as well as on the dinner table.
We have been making this recipe for years. It is a barbecue standard at our house. I have seen several versions of it, but this was the first I made. You can use just about any type of soup. I prefer cream of potato. I don't usually top mine with anything either.
This recipie was a hit! I tweaked it a tad...I used frozen hash browns, 1 can cream of potato with 1 can cream of chicken, added some bacon bits, and used kettle cooked potato chips instead of cornflakes. Will reduce amout of chips to 2cups next time. 4 cups was excessive.
I tried a similar recipe at a friend's house over Easter and loved it; however, I didn't want to use an entire stick of butter in my casserole as she did. Even for this recipe, I used low-fat sour cream, 2% sharp cheddar and added 1 chopped onion and it turned out great!
Very good! I used potatoes O'Brien instead of au gratin (never knew there was frozen au gratin potatoes) and spiced them up with a good dash of all-season salt. Then, I used a can of crm of chix and a can of crm of potato and ommitted the cornflakes. Add some ham or chicken to this and it practically could be a maindish itself! However, it did work as a filling side to our "Yakatori" steaks (also from this site)! Thanks Karen!
This is the perfect recipe for brunches, potlucks or holiday dinners. Ladies used to bring this when I went to MOPS and I always loved it, I'm so glad I found the right recipe.
