Also known as funeral potatoes (or maybe just in my hometown?) but gooey potatoes is a much less morbid name. Everyone has a recipe for gooey potatoes but this is my favorite version. My friends the Clarks introduced me to them.Whether it’s Christmas, Easter, or a summertime barbeque, you can be assured that these Gooey Potatoes will be on our dinner table.
I feel like mashed potatoes and gravy are reserved for Thanksgiving so we serve these at basically every other holiday besides that.
|Gooey Potatoes|| |
- 1 (2lb) bag of frozen cubed hash browns, thawed (I have used shredded too. It's just personal preference.)
- 2 cups sour cream
- 2 cups shredded sharp cheese, + ½ cup for topping
- 2 cans cream of chicken soup
- Small bunch of green onions, sliced
- 2-3 cups Cornflakes
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix sour cream, 2 cups of the cheddar cheese, cream of chicken soup, and green onions in a large bowl.
- Add the hash browns and mix together thoroughly.
- Crush cornflakes lightly in a ziploc bag.
- Mix the remaining ½ cup of cheese with 2 cups of corn flakes and butter. Reserve for later.
- Pour potatoes into a 9x13 baking dish. Cover and bake potatoes at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. (*I cook mine a little longer just to make sure they are done. There is nothing worse than crunchy potatoes. ) Cover top with corn flake/cheese mixture and bake an additional 15 minutes until potatoes are bubbling and top has browned.
I did add butter to the cornflakes on top.
