  • 30 oz frozen shredded hash browns about 10 cups (use Mr. Dells if you can)
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 12 ounces sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese (I like sharp cheddar pre-shredded in a bag)
  • 1 cup crushed corn flakes


  • Preheat oven to 340º (weird temperature).
  • Mix soup, sour cream, milk and green onions in a bowl and set aside.
  • Pour 1/4 cup melted butter into a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.
  • Add half the package of hash browns (about 5 cupto the baking dish. Pour half the soup/sour cream mixture over the potatoes. Spread evenly. Sprinkle 1 cup shredded cheddar on top of that.
  • Add remainder of hash browns and then the rest of the soup mixture. Sprinkle on remaining 1 cup of cheese, then cover with crushed corn flakes. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and drizzle on top of the corn flakes.
  • Bake for 1 hour until hot and bubbly.
