Potato Casserole & a Virtual Holiday Brunch Potluck


I sometimes wish I lived near some of my food blogger friends, it would make it so much easier wouldn’t it? All of the wonderful food I see on some of my favorite blogs all in one place? I wish we could but since we couldn’t, we came together to do a virtual potluck. I’m sharing a huge family favorite, a potato casserole. It’s a really easy casserole to make. You really cannot get easier than this cheesy potato casserole.

We have it at Thanksgiving every year and even at Christmas. I like to eat it with scrambled eggs for breakfast too! A co-worker shared the recipe with some years back, 6 years ago? I would love to give credit where credit is due so if you recognize it, let me know!

Mix together the sour cream, shredded cheese, cream of celery soup and salt & pepper first then add potatoes and mix well. Add more salt and pepper to taste.


Spread evenly in a 9×13 metal or glass dish. Cover the casserole with crushed corn flakes and melted butter. You won’t regret this dish.


I mean it, you won’t. So tell me…what’s your favorite brunch recipe?

This casserole is quick and easy to put together and is the perfect addition to a holiday dinner or brunch!

Ingredients:

16 oz sour cream
¼ cup very small diced onions
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 10.75 oz cans cream of celery soup
2 lbs frozen hash brown potatoes (I like the shredded, country style from Ore-Ida)
salt & pepper, to taste
2 cups crumbled corn flakes cereal
½ stick butter, melted
softened butter, to grease the pan with

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 glass casserole dish with softened butter.

Leftovers of this casserole taste great!

    I wish we all lived closer too! We’d all be cooking for a potluck every weekend, I’m sure :) and speaking of your dish for a potluck, I love your potato casserole with the corn flake topping. Sounds delish and an added bonus crunch too :)

    It would be so much fun if we all lived near each other. This casserole sounds like pure comfort food for the holidays, and the cornflakes on top are so clever.
