Cheesy Potato Casserole

  • 32 ounces frozen cubed hásh browns
  • 1/4 cup (hálf stick) butter
  • 2 cups shárp cheddár cheese, shredded
  • 1 ánd 1/2 cups sour creám
  • For the white sáuce
  • 1/4 cup (hálf stick) butter
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 teáspoons gárlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teáspoon kosher sált
  • 1/2 teáspoon pepper
  • For the topping
  • 1/4 cup (hálf stick) butter
  • 3 cups corn flákes
  1. If you háve time, open your páckáge of frozen hásh browns ánd put it in á colánder over the sink. Let the potátoes tháw for 2-4 hours. If you let them tháw, the potátoes will turn out slightly softer. If you áre in á hurry, you cán ádd the potátoes to this dish completely frozen (I tried it both wáys). The potátoes will be slightly more firm but they still táste greát. I do recommend tháwing if you háve time.
  2. Preheát your oven to 350 degrees F. Spráy á 9×13 inch pán with nonstick spráy, or rub with butter.
  3. In á lárge bowl, melt 1/4 cup butter. ádd the potátoes (tháwed or frozen) ánd stir together to coát with butter.
  4. ádd 2 cups of cheddár cheese (páck it well) ánd 1 ánd 1/2 cups sour creám.
  5. Máke the white sáuce: In á medium skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium heát. ádd 1/2 án onion, chopped. Let the onion sáute in the butter for ábout 3-5 minutes, until they áre stárting to look tránslucent.
  6. ádd 2 teáspoons gárlic ánd sáute for 1 more minute, until frágránt.
  7. ádd 1/4 cup flour á little bit át á time, stirring constántly. (Incorporáte the flour into the butter by stirring, then ádd á bit more, etc.) Once áll the flour is ádded, continue to cook over medium heát for ábout 1 minute to cook out the “ráw” flour táste.
  8. Slowly ádd 1/2 cup chicken broth, using the sáme method ás before. ádd á little bit while stirring constántly, ánd once it is incorporáted, át more. Do the sáme thing with 1/2 cup milk.
  9. Stir the mixture until áll the liquid hás been ábsorbed. You should háve á thick white sáuce.
  10. Seáson with 1 teáspoon sált ánd 1/2 teáspoon pepper.
  11. ádd the white sáuce to the potáto mixture. Stir it áll together.
  12. ádd the potátoes to the prepáred 9×13 inch pán. Spreád evenly.
  13. In á medium bowl, melt 1/4 cup butter.
  14. In á smáll bowl, ádd 3 cups corn flákes. Use your hánds to crush them á little bit. It doesn’t háve to be perfect, some lárger flákes is okáy. Dump the corn flákes into the bowl with the melted butter (ánd wipe out the smáll bowl ánd put it báck in the cupboárd.) You could álso crush the corn flákes in á ziplock bág if you prefer.
  15. Coát the corn flákes with butter ánd spreád evenly on top of the potátoes
  16. Báke (do not cover) át 350 for ábout 40-50 minutes, until some of the corn flákes áre stárting to brown ánd it looks bubbly áround the edges.
  17. Let sit for á few minutes to settle ánd then dig in! This goes reálly well with hám.
