Comforting Potato Casserole Recipe

After enjoying this creamy, snazzed-up potato casserole at a wedding dinner, my daughters and I asked the caterer to share the recipe. Because it can be made ahead, it's a great recipe for busy cooks. —Darlis Wilfer, West Bend, Wisconsin

"I have not made this yet, but when I do, I am going to add diced onions and chopped green peppers. Saved it to my recipe box and will try it soon!"

"Very good. I cut recipe in half, made the hash browns with fresh potatoes, added some seasoning, topped it with seasoned bread crumbs. Came out really good. Also, love the fact you can make ahead and heat up. I froze about 1/2 of what I made. Just defrost, and warm in oven. Just as good as before, maybe better."

"I made this for dinner tonight. Was excited because of all the reviews that said it was so great. I cut the recipe in half as it is just the two of us. Neither one of us liked it. It was way to creamy and very bland. Sorry for the bad review. Maybe our taste buds are different than most people."

"I have been making a variation of this recipe for years as well. Sometimes I substitute cream of chicken soup for the mushroom (depending on the meat) and it is just as excellent. I also top with crushed corn flakes towards the end of baking to give the dish a bit of crunch. I constantly get asked for the recipe."

"This is quite similar to a dish I have made for years. I like it, but some of my family members object to canned soup. I get around that by making my own mushroom sauce by sautéing fresh mushrooms and making a rue thinned with milk and bit of white wine and an addition of onion powder. The canned French fried onions also make a tasty addition and topping. I have sneaked in a bit of canned soup in the rue, so far they didn't detect the cheating. I first found the basis for this in pork chop dish recipe, we didn't like baking the pork chops on top, too greasy. I agree shredded hash browns are the best choice."
