Jump to Recipe

Party potatoes are probably my kids’ absolute favorite food! They just cannot get enough of the hearty, cheesy goodness with all of that buttery, crunchy topping. These potatoes are so simple to make, and are the epitome of comfort food. Perfect for parties, potlucks, holiday dinner, or pretty much any occasion!

There are just a few simple ingredients needed:

  • A bag of thawed hash brown potatoes
  • Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 cup of Sour Cream
  • Salted Butter
  • Corn Flakes
  • Salt and Pepper

Preparing Potluck Party Potatoes

Cooking the onion in the melted butter is a crucial step! Without it, the onion flavor is a bit more sharp and bitter and takes over the flavor of the whole dish.

Melted butter and onions

All you need to do, is mix the ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined.

It does take a bit of elbow grease, but well worth the effort!

Transfer the potato mixture into a greased 9×13 casserole dish.

Next, pour melted butter over the cornflakes, and stir together. I usually just crush the cornflakes while stirring or with my hands. You can even crush them up in a Ziploc baggie

Cornflakes Topping

Evenly spread the cornflakes mixture over the top of the potatoes, and it’s ready to be baked.

In just about 30 minutes, the Potluck Party Potatoes are ready to enjoy!

We love them with delicious Sweet and Sour meatballs – another potluck favorite!

This dish can also be prepared in a slow cooker: Simply add the mixture from step 3 into a crock pot and cook on low for 4 hours, or on high for 2 hours. Add the corn flake topping when you have about 30 minutes cook time remaining.
