Don’t even think about planning a holiday meal in Jim’s family without including the Golden Potato Casserole! This is a must-have dish at every holiday meal. It can be prepared a day ahead and baked just before eating.
6 medium potatoes, boiled and cooled in skins (or use frozen potato cubes, enough to equal 6 medium potatoes)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/4 C butter
2 C grated cheddar cheese
2 C (16 oz.) sour cream (for a lighter version, use low-fat Greek yogurt)
1/3 C chopped green onions
Corn Flakes cereal, crumbled
2 Tbsp. butter to dot over Corn Flakes
Peel and grate cold potatoes (or, pour bag of frozen potatoes) into large bowl.
Heat soup and butter over low heat. Remove from heat and blend in cheddar cheese, sour cream, and green onions. Pour sour cream mixture over cold potatoes in bowl and toss gently.
Spread potato mixture in buttered 8x10x2-inch casserole. Sprinkle with crushed Corn Flakes, dot with butter.
Bake uncovered at 350F for 45 minutes.
