    My daughter in law loves this when I make this. I substitute the cornflakes with fried onions like you use on green bean casserole.

    I truly enjoyed this recipe. To make it a bit more flavorful, I also added a packet of dry ranch seasoning & it turned out phenomenally. I am making this again this week & I am subbing in Gouda & Bacon Cheddar cheese. To sum it up, this is a great base recipe that could use a little improvisation.

    Have been making this casserole for years. It always turns out great! Sometimes instead of putting the chopped ham in it, I leave it out and serve the potatoes along side ham slices.

    Thank you to Taste of Home Chef Karen Davis for recommending this casserole on her Facebook post. I was looking for a side dish for my Easter ham and this was a great suggestion! My family loved it; I doubled the recipe to make sure we had plenty. I made it without the ham since I was serving it alongside ham, but it's a great recipe to use up leftover ham for Easter, too.

    Had for supper last nite. Sure hit the spot on a cold & snowy night. Baked it in a 8x8" dish, halved the ingred. sort of. Had 1 1/4lb. of potatoes left in bag, so used them all, eyeballed the 1/2 can of soup (know i used more, because of potatoes). The only thing really diff., i thought too much topping so i cut that way back. Made 3/4 cup flakes (for the 1/2 recipe) to 2 tbsp butter, but that was way too much for the 8x8, only used about 1/2 of that, tossed the rest. Just perfect. Will definately be making this again. Served with green salad and buns. Would be great for potlucks.

    I just made this recipe using 2 cups ranch dip instead of plain sour cream. Very good!

    This is great for leftover Easter ham. But, I also make it as a potato side dish (without the ham) and it is always a hit.
