  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 medium onion finely chopped
  • 32 ounces frozen hash brown potatoes (thawed for 3040 minutes)
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 can (10.5 ounce) cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 cup crushed cornflakes


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over medium heat.  Add onions and cook until tender; approximately 5 minutes
  3. In a large bowl stir together hash brown potatoes, onion, 1/2 cup melted butter, sour cream, cream of chicken soup, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cheddar and Monterey jack.  Spoon into prepared dish.
  4. Stir together 1/4 cup melted butter and crushed cornflakes.  Sprinkle over potatoes.  Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.


  • I take the frozen hash browns out of the freezer and let them sit on the counter for about 30-40 minutes before I start this recipe.  This gives them a little thawing time so the whole mixture does not freeze into one big glob while I am trying to stir it.
  • If you are really pressed for time you do not have to saute the onion but I think that it adds more depth and flavor and is well worth the extra 5 minutes.
  • This casserole can be assembled up to 24 hours in advance and stored covered in the refrigerator.  Reserve mixing the conrflakes with butter until right before popping in the oven.
  • This recipe calls for frozen hash brown potatoes but any frozen potato or parboiled potato will work.
  • For best results do not use low fat sour cream or low fat cheese because they just don’t taste as good.  You can eat a low calorie meal tomorrow or later in the week.
