Sister Linda's Kick Ass Pan of Cheesy Potatoes
(with color commentary by me)
2 lbs of hash browns
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
8 oz of sour cream
(NOTE: don't be a pussy and try to save calories or sodium on the cream of soups and sour cream. This is cheesy potatoes for god's sake. Let them be bad ass.)
1/2 to 3/4 stick of butter softened or even melted
8 oz of finely shredded cheddar cheese
(I used sharp cheddar. Use real cheese or I will call you a name.)
5-6 cups of Corn Flakes crushed
(Not Special K!)
2. In a big bowl, mix the soups, sour cream, butter and cheese. Mix in the hash browns until they are well coated with cheesy, soupy mix. (Feel free to add some pepper or diced onions, too.)
3. Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with Pam. Spread the potato mixture evenly in the pan and place in the pre-heated for 60 minutes.
4. Crush the cornflakes. Not to a dust, but a crumble.
5. At about 50 minutes of baking, pull the pan out and spread the cornflake crumbles on top of the potatoes and return to the oven to finish.
