Contest-Winning Cheesy Potato Casserole Recipe

When my husband and I were married 12 years ago, my mother gave me a cookbook she created of my favorite recipes. This creamy dish was among them. Now it's popular with my family. I often take it to carry-in suppers. -Paige Buckingham Lawrence, Kansas

MY REVIEW

Very bland! I couldn't even tell the french onion dip was in there. I wouldn't make it again.

Oh, this recipe is a keeper! Be warned, it makes a lot and if you don't have many hungry mouths you will probably be throwing away some leftovers. I tried the bacon-on-top option with the green onions, and I put the cheese on last 5 minutes of cooking. Delicious! Great for a potluck, they will eat it all up for you.

I've made a lot of potato casseroles and this one is definitely a winner. The cottage cheese sort of melts as you bite into it and it's just delicious. My family has now requested this recipe several times. For a change I've added a sprinkle of green onions and cooked, chopped bacon on top - adds to the flavor and also looks pretty.

very good! But I wouldn't put the cheddar cheese on until you take it out of the oven. Otherwise cheese gets hard an rubbery.
