Does anyone have a recipe "not" using shredded raw potatoes, but the
small cubes.  There are lots online, but they don't specify if the
potatoes are shredded or not.....tia....Sharon

Beware:  This recipe contains a can of soup!

1 stick butter (8 Tbs.), cut in half
1 lb. bag of cubed hash brown potatoes (I know Ore Ida makes them).
1 can cream of chicken or cream of celery soup, undiluted
1 c. sour cream
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2-1 tsp. salt
1/4 c. chopped onion
1-1/2 c. cornflake crumbs (found on the baking aisle)

Melt 1/2 stick of butter (4 Tbs.) in a 9X13 baking dish (pyrex, for
example).  Add the frozen potatoes in a single layer.  In a mixing bowl,
combine the soup, sour cream, cheese, salt and pepper.  Pour mixture over
the potatoes.  Melt the other 4 Tbs. of butter and combine with the
cornflake crumbs.  Sprinkle the crumb topping over the casserole.  Bake at
350F for 30 minutes covered (foil is fine) and then 15 minutes uncovered
until the top is nicely browned.

Wow.  A stick of butter, a cup of sour cream, 2 cups of cheese, and a
can of soup, all for 1 pound of potatoes?  Who could notice whether the
potatoes are cubed or shredded?  I'd want at least two pounds of
potatoes to accommodate all that fat.    -aem

I never said it was a low-fat recipe, although of course you could probably
reduce it some by using that non-fat sour cream, reduced fat cheese and a
butter substitute.  The recipe was given to me by a woman I worked with back
in the 1980's; she brought it to a company pot-luck thing.  Now that you
mention it, I think the one time I made it I got the 2 pound bag of cubed
"hash browns".

I have also used the "potatoes O'Brien' style for this.

You mentioned 'corn flake crumbs'.....I find it easier to put regular cheap
cornflakes in a ziplock and hand them to my 15 year old daughter.  Then have
the younger brother (13) tell her the 22 year old brother said her butt
looks fat in those jeans.  By the time I retrieve the 'flakes' after she
pummells the hell out of the older one with them, they are officially
crumbs.

LOL  The problem is, I can't find cheap cornflakes.  A box of cereal these
days, even simple cornflakes, costs close to $5.  It's ridiculous.  The
cornflake crumbs on cost half that and last forever.  Of course, I don't
have children to crush the cornflakes for me :)

 Brown potatoes first ,
 fully cook all onions .

 Sour cream , soup , and cheddar cheese , butter
 can be cooked  together  and taste "tested"  .
 Use this as your topping .

 cornflakes crumbs can go on top

 Bake at 450 for 2 seconds .......or for  appearance .

   You allready know everything is cooked proper ,
 you tasted individually.

  The reason to keep separated is for flavor .
 Next time put everything in a blender and compare
 with my method .

 There's too much chance of getting over cook on the
cheddar cheese /soup and under cook on potatoes , so
why take the gamble when you can do it right .

There's no reason you can't make any shredded potato casserole with the 
cubed potatoes.  It's called "thinking outside the box".

The bag of frozen hash browns that I have, has seasoning in it.

That's still no reason it can't be substituted in any hash brown casserole 
recipe.

That's difficult to do if you've been sealed inside the box. :-)

(not at all implying that Sharon has been)

I need to get my eyes checked, or my dyslexia in check. I thought the
subject was Hash Brownie casserole.

Then you're not old ENOUGH.  Short term memory is the first to go.

Well there's my problem!

I have a great memory, it's just short!

And I worried so much.

I think we're having fish on Friday. I hope I'll remember! :D
