Oh my gosh! If you’re looking for a recipe for cheesy potatoes for your Christmas dinner… I’ve got your back! These cheesy potatoes are to die for! We have them every holiday and they are always a HUGE hit! They are my Mom’s specialty…and a recipe passed down from my Grandma. I made them for a church event a few weeks ago and had to call her for the recipe. Of course, now I have to share them with you. Most of the cheesy potato casseroles I have seen call for cream of soup… NOT this one. Sour cream, butter and cheese… what else could potatoes need? ;)


Recipe for cheesy potatoes


  • 1 (30 oz) bag Ore Ida hash browns (country style shredded potatoes) -Leave them out an hour before to thaw
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 16 oz sour cream
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1/2 cup cornflakes


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350. In a medium sized bowl combine: potatoes, green onions, sour cream, salt, pepper, melted butter and 1 cup of cheese. Stir until combined. Then spread into a 9x13 greased baking dish. Top with corn flakes and remaining shredded cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

    Mmmm!I think these would go down perfectly on a cold winter’s day! Too bad Christmas is on the middle of summer in Australia – we miss out on all the warm, cosy comfort foods at Christmas because it’s too hot to eat them!

    I made some of the cream of soup variety for our church Christmas dinner. They were good, but I’m always worried about the sodium content. I’m pinning your mom’s recipe for next time!

    I use ritz crackers on top of mine… I don’t like the way the corn flakes get mushy… and cream of celery soup, it has a nice tang! mmmm now I want some!

    I’ve seen similar recipes that call for a cream soup (chicken, mushroom, potato, etc.). Does it work ok without it? Thanks for your help!

      Many of my friends use it in their recipes, but my mom never has and I love it! The sour cream still gives you the creamy texture!
