Cheesy Potato Casserole


This recipe is an adaptation  from Food.com’s Mom’s Cheesy Potato Casserole aka Funeral Potatoes. This recipe originally contained cream of chicken soup but having a gluten-free child we do not use canned soups.  So I just tried it without the soup.  Although it probably wasn’t as “firm” we all thought it tasted good.  I served this with kielbasa on the side but any type of ham or hot dog would be good too even mixed into the potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (2 lb.) bag of frozen hash brown potatoes thawed.  I used the square-cut country ones.
  •  1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of half and half
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. In a saucepan heat butter,  sour cream, 1 c cheese and onion; stir until ingredients have melted or are well combined.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add potatoes to saucepan and mix until blended.
  4. Add milk or just enough that mixture isn’t too wet.
  5. Spoon into the 8×8 baking dish.
  6. Top with remaining cheese and bake @ 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes

  7. Those look yummy! Say, we have good results with Pacific Foods Cream of mushroom and chicken soups. They are gluten-free and come in small boxes. They are a little spendy, though, so I often make my own sauces.

      There are so many more good products now. In 2012 we were just getting to the start of the gluten-free market. I should probably remake this dish with how I would make it now which would be much different.

      It is a mixture of half cream and half milk. It is usually sold near the milk or cream in our grocery stores. I like to use it rather than whole milk or cream as it can come in fat-free and be richer than fat free milk.

        I’ve no seen that before in the UK, either in England or here in Scotland. It must be an american thing. I will have to make my own… x x

          I think mixing 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk should work just fine. Let me know.
