Company Potatoes


























Matthew's mother has been making these potatoes FOREVER, and they are a staple on Christmas morning.  I used to make them, but I always had way too much afterwards since there are just the two of us (hence the name, Company Potatoes).  So, when I found a smaller bag of frozen potatoes in the freezer section of our grocery store, I figured I would try change the recipe just a bit and see how it worked out...well, thankfully, it worked out perfectly on the first try!!!  Yes, we have leftovers, but not an overwhelming amount, and they are usually gone shortly :-)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Using a spatula, in a casserole dish, fold together:

1 lb 4 oz bag chunk potatoes, thawed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 c sour cream
2 c grated cheddar cheese, NOT the fine or "fancy" version

In a separate bowl, fold together:

<1/2 c melted butter
3/4 c bread crumbs

Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture on top of the potatoes.  Put into the oven for 45 minutes, or until it is browned to your liking.

I served this with the Bacon, Egg and Cheese Hashbrown Cups, it was a perfect combination!

Ingredients
1 lb 4 oz bag chunk potatoes, thawed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 c sour cream
2 c grated cheddar cheese, NOT the fine or "fancy" version
<1/2 c melted butter
3/4 c bread crumbs

In case you are making these potatoes for a larger crowd, below are the amounts of the ingredients of the original recipe.  Use the same directions as above.

Original Recipe:
2 lb bag Chunk potatoes, thawed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup
