Favor to Kristen: Cheesy Potatoes

I love cheesy potatoes. The men in our small group love cheesy potatoes too. I think if they were given the option, they would eat cheesy potatoes at every single small group meal. And really, who could blame them? Last week for Lance's birthday party I made a huge batch of cheesy potatoes, along with hamburgers, cowboy caviar, snicker salad, and better-than-sex cake. Needless to say, calorie overload!

Kristen is my work bff :) We talk about all sorts of strange things all day long. Our cube mates comment that it is considerably quieter when one of us is gone. That's an understatement to say the least! But per her need to take a "potato dish" to a friend's house on Sunday, here's my recipe for cheesy potatoes. They all seem to vary a bit, but this is my version. My favorite part is the cornflakes.

32 oz bag of shredded hash browns, thawed
1 c sour cream
1 c milk
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c melted butter
1/4 c chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Mix all milk, chicken soup, sour cream, melted butter, salt, & pepper in a large bowl. Pour in hash browns, cheese, and onion. Put in 9x13 pan.

2 c crushed corn flakes
1/4 c melted margarine

Mix and put on top of potato mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
