This cheesy potato casserole is the ultimate comfort food; warm, creamy, with a crispy top layer. This dish is very easy to make and is a fast favorite. #WomenLivingWell #vegetarian #potato #sidedish
Today’s recipe is a staple at our family get togethers! Janelle is sharing her version of Cheesy Potato Casserole today. My recipe is the same only I put crushed corn flakes or Ritz crackers on top rather than the bread crumbs. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this casserole!
This is my “go to” recipe for Cheesy Potatoes…it is easy, quick, and delicious! I bring this to family functions and make it for company all the time (leftovers are great too!)…Serve with dinner or along side is a wonderful recipe to have on hand. Enjoy! ~Janelle

  1. This is my favourite as well …. delish! I always take this to our church pot lucks. The grandkids always ask for this recipe plus the mashed potatoes. Happy Easter!

  2. My family LOVES this and I always make this when I bring a potluck dish. It is yummy and it makes a lot. I have never tried it with breadcrumbs (I always use corn flakes as well). Will have to give the bread crumb version a try!

  3. I make something like this every year for Christmas dinner and everyone just loves it! The only difference is I use cream of potato soup instead of cream of chicken. I even made one and froze it unbaked and used it later and it was still great!

  4. Courtney, this is very similar to our families favorite “Hashbrown Casserole” All ingredients are the same EXCEPT – No onions in the mixture and we top the casserole with french fried onions. Delicious! I am sure this one is great too!

  5. our family has made this for every holiday and get together for years. I recently made a couple changes and we love it even more. I use green onion in place of the regular onion and top it with crushed “lightly salted” potato chips. This is the perfect side for fried turkey too!

  6. My family loved it! The only variation was I used seasoned Panko as the topping. My eight year old was mega impressed. Thank you:-)

  7. We make almost the same one at my house, but we use country style hash browns and no bread crumbs! It’s requested every.single.year! LOL
