So yummy! This is a favorite of ours. I never buy frozen potatoes to make this, though. I always just use my own potatoes peeled, diced, and par-cooked on stove-top before baking. I must have made a hundred times already, and probably will make a few hundred more.
Not sure where I went wrong? It was not a hit in my house. My kids said it had too much onion flavor and I thought the chips on top were gross. I did use fresh potatoes because I had a ton of them in the pantry. Maybe you have to use frozen for it to taste right? Oh well...too bad.
oh my gosh I just had this and it is sooooo good. Comfort food at it's best. I even used all lowfat/nonfat ingredients (fat free sour cream, fat free condensed soup, 1 cup fat free sharp cheddar, 1 cup 2% sharp cheddar, Simply Shredded frozen shredded potatoes, lowfat wheat thins made into crumbs in the food processor, 1/4 cup melted Smart Balance trans fat free margarine) and it was still SUPERB. I divided the mixture into 2 8"x8" pans and topped one with 1/2 the crumbs and 1/2 the melted margarine and baked it. The other pan is in the freezer with a baggy of the crumbs on top, ready to bake for another scrumptious meal. YUM!
This was a really good casserole. The potatoes were very moist and had lots of flavor. As my son puts it “the potatoes had yummy goop.” I omitted the onion and it was great. I would say next time I am going to mix the butter in though because when you get the potatoes from the oven there is a ½ inch of grease sitting on top that is very unappealing. So, next time I will mix the butter instead of just drizzling it on top. Great recipe though, and I will defiantly make it again!
Very good! My family puts french fried onions on the top instead of the crushed potato chips. This adds a great flavor!
Unbelievable!! Delicious!! I added a can of Campbell's Pepperjack cheese soup instead of the cream of chicken and used cornflakes instead of potato chips. Have made it twice now and everyone still rants! Don't forget to top it off with a little garlic salt! Thank you Bea!!
I prepared this recipe with fat free sour cream, Health Request Chicken soup, and fat free Lays chips. It was delicious and it got rave reviews from my spouse and son. It was great warmed up the second time too. Will definately make this again.
My aunt makes a casserole similar to this every year... all I can say is YUMMY! The potato chips really add to the whole potato theme and enhance the dish overall. A highly recommended indulgence!
