I love this recipe. I have made it many times for pot lucks, work, sunday brunches, etc. There are never leftovers.
I use honeybaked ham (buy by the slice) in this recipe and I eliminate the chicken because I love cheese and ham. I use reduced sodium cream of chicken, reduced fat (not fat free) sour cream, and 2% cheddar cheese. I double the amount of cheese. Pre-shredded cheese doesn't seem to melt as well and 2% definitely doesn't melt as well, so just for the topping I use regular cheddar cheese that I shred myself. I have used fresh onion, frozen onion and an onion soup packet. Fresh onion was by far the best. Onion seems to lose its flavor after it's frozen (might be in my head) and the soup mix made it taste like it came out of a can (that might be in my head too). I usually double this recipe and bake it in a large deep lasagna pan. There still aren't leftovers when I double it. I have even taken TWO double pans to work and there were no leftovers. I would like to try making potato pancakes (like you do with leftover mashed potatoes) but I never get to try it because there are never leftovers. Maybe one day.
