This versatile side dish was dairy-good with the steaks we grilled and is delicious with other meats as well. A creamy cheese sauce and crunchy topping make this potato casserole ever-popular for family dinners and potlucks. —Carol Troyer, Pryor, Oklahoma and Teresa Stutzman, Adair, Oklahoma

"This was delicious. I used cream of celery soup I didn't have cornflake crumbs so I used crushed seasoned stuffing croutettes. I will definitely make this again!"

"My mom wanted a good hash brown casserole recipe. I found this one on your site. She made it for our Christmas dinner this year. Only exception, she left out the paprika. It was wonderful and everyone loved it."
