Meals ~ Nov 23-29 ~ Thanksgiving Menu

 Well, the holidays are upon us. I can hardly believe it, wasn’t it just Fourth of July? I have been having a blast visiting all the great Thanksgiving Day posts around blogsphere. I’ve put on 5 pounds just from surfing and reading all the great recipes. :)

Cheesy Potatoe Casserole.fixed.1

Today, I ‘m sharing my Cheesy Potato Casserole recipe with you. I’m not sure why, but I only make this dish on the holidays. My husband absolutely loves it, and I probably should make it more often for him. The rest of the family does not like it as well, so I decided to divide the mixture in half, I cooked half on Sunday for dinner, so that I could have a picture to share with you (I haven’t made it since I’ve been blogging) and I froze the other half to have on Thanksgiving.


  • 32 oz. pkg of Hash Browns (I use the little square kind)
  • 1/2 c. Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 (16 oz) Container of Sour Cream
  • 1/4 c. Butter, melted
  • 5 c. Corn Flakes, crushed  (I usually use a little less)


Mix together all ingredients except Butter and Corn Flakes. Place Hash Brown mixture into 9 x 13 baking pan or casserole dish. Mix crushed Corn Flakes and butter, sprinkle on top of Hash Browns. Bake, uncovered at 325 degrees for 90 minutes, or until golden brown.

To freeze:  I put half the mixture into a plastic whipped topping container and wrapped in foil, and labeled.

    I ate this growing up and we only had it on Thanksgiving too. The funny thing is that my dad would have to monitor what I had on my plate or I would eat just a plate full of this and nothing else… :)
