1 24-ounce bag frozen hash brown potatoes (we like diced), thawed
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream*
1 cup grated cheddar*
one-half cup plus 2 T. melted butter*
one-third cup chopped onion
2 cups crushed cornflakes
salt to taste
Combine 2 T. melted butter and cornflakes. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Blend well. Pour potato mixture in a large oblong pan. Sprinkle crushed cornflake mixture on top and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
*Do not use low-fat versions of these ingredients. Low-fat sour cream and cheddar will not melt, and margarine has water in it.
