I have made this dish using 32 oz. shredded hash browns. I prefer grated sharp cheddar cheese. I also use crushed ruffled chips on top. I will use cubed hash browns next time.

I Usually use crackers but I had some cornflakes I needed to use. It gave it a great crunchy texture. My family loved it.

This is a great casserole! I've never made it with velveeta. I substitute shredded cheddar cheese since we like that better. The cornflakes on top add a great crunch!

I've made this for a long time, but I use potatoes O'Brien and cheddar cheese, no condensed soup.

this has been my go to potatoes for at least 15 yrs now (I saw it in TOH magazine when it came out). I just now thought to look to see if it's online so I could add it to my recipe box. I love these potatoes and I take them everywhere and other people love them too. I have friends ask me to bring these. The only difference is I use shredded cheddar cheese instead of velveeta, otherwise I make them as is. I occasionally add a can of french fried onions instead of the cornflakes.

I have made this potato casserole recipe for 25 years and is a family favorite. Instead of the velveeta, I use a can of cream of cheddar soup (undiluted) and add 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar. Sometimes I mix in cubed ham to make it a meal in itself. Delicious!
