Cheesy Potato Casserole

This is a delicious potato casserole that goes wonderfully with roast beef, grilled steaks, or anything!
 You can make it ahead, so it's a good potato dish when you're  entertaining.
 Leftovers are a good side dish to serve with omelets for breakfast.
Gather the ingredients.
 Pour half the melted butter over the potatoes.
 Combine the remaining ingredients (except topping) and mix into the potatoes.
 Put into a greased 9x13 baking dish.
 Combine the crushed Ritz crackers or corn flakes with the remaining butter.
Sprinkle evenly on top.
Bake until golden brown.

  1. Hum that looks good! Thanks for sharing, might have to give that a try this week. Blessings, Vicky

  2. Rita,

    I have made this many times and it is a family favorite. Your pics made me hungry.

  3. That is a favorite in my family too. I have to make it in a smaller batch because it is really hard to stir together. I add leftover ham to it too for a whole meal.

  4. It is also great with leftover chicken or turkey added. We call them funeral potatoes because it seems to be a staple at every funeral dinner since it makes a large dish to feed several people and most people love them.

  5. Love this recipe -- although I've never tried it with the crackers on top --- must try that.

  6. I used to make this years ago. Could you use a cream of mushroom or clery etc for vegetarians?

  7. Cream of Mushroom or Celery would work just fine.
