Golden Au Gratin Potatoes

During the many years I've made this creamy potato dish, I haven't run into anyone who didn't like it! The sauce is very flavorful and just the right consistency—not too thick or too thin. For a family dinner or potluck dish, this casserole is always a winner. —Lavonne Hartel Williston, North Dakota

    I made these one night when my daughter was gone and my son and I would be having pork chops. It made way more than the two of us needed and I thought my daughter could have some when she got home. I underestimated my son. He got up in the middle of the night and are them cold from the fridge. His sister never found a crumb.. The only changes I made was to cut back the butter to 1/2 cup and to use panko. I don't even own a box of cornflakes. I have nothing against them, I just prefer panko.

    Best cheesy potato casserole EVER! My family loved it, the cornflake topping gives it a crunch. I halved this recipe and it easily served our family of 6, with more left over. Instead of using condensed chicken soup, try making a white sauce with some chicken broth. I used 4 1/2 cups of shredded potatoes instead of frozen hash brown potatoes. (I did halve the recipe.) It was great, will make again.

    This is easy and very tasty. My guests went back for thirds. I added more very sharp cheese and used Panko crumbs instead of corn flakes. Two suggestions: mash down the potatoes a litte as they tended to be a bit too hard and put under the broiler the last few minutes for a nice crusty top.

    I made this recipe for a large gathering. I baked it in several pans in the oven and then transferred to a crock pot to serve. It received rave reviews.
