  • 1 32 oz package frozen diced hash browns, (or shredded potatoes)
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 10.5 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder optional
  • 2 - 3 cups corn flakes crushed
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place hash browns in a colander and let sit until fully thawed and drained.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine sour cream, soup and ½ cup butter and mix well.
  • Add cheese, salt and onion powder and mix until well combined.
  • Add potatoes to cheese mixture and stir until combined. Place in a lightly greased 9-x-13-inch baking dish.
  • Combine corn flakes and remaining 1/4 cup melted butter in a large resealable plastic bag and shake until cereal is coated.
  • Sprinkle buttered corn flakes over potatoes.
  • Bake for 42–46 minutes. Serve warm.



Make Ahead. Make potatoes as directed, but do not add the buttered corn flake topping. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. When ready to bake, add the buttered cornflake topping and bake as directed.
Topping Variations. We think corn flakes work the best, but you can also use Panko breadcrumbs or even crushed Ritz crackers.
STORE. Place the potatoes in an air-tight container and leave in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat, just place on a plate and reheat in the microwave until heated through.
