This looks like a side that'd go with just about anything!

I make this with cream of celery soup. My children and grandchildren love it as a side with ham.


I use garlic cream of mushroom soup and omit the onions and everyone loves it!

I make this using cream of chicken soup, call it Texas potatoes. It is very very good. Why do people rate a recipe they have never tried? Are we rating printing techniques now? Why bring the rating stars down, for a wonderful potato dish that would appeal to so many. Some people wont look at a rating with low stars, so silly people put less stars because of.......printing??? PLEASE, try it....then rate it....the recipe, not computer or printing issues!! Send it to your email, or Pinterest, you don't have to print it!! I LOVE this potato dish. Just changed up the soup.

This will not fit in an 8x8 dish. I have made this for years and it fills a 9x13 dish to the top. - Just saying.

Dear Mean(lol) just copy paste recipe to a word doc in Microsoft, ( included in most versions of Windows) You can then edit it as you wish to not waste paper, Martie.

I make this with cream of onion soup and it is soooo good. I also put crushed potato chips on top or sometimes nothing. Whatever you have in your pantry!

I make the recipe using cream of chicken soup and Ore-Ida O'Brien potatoes (they have onions and green pepper). It's a favorite with my family. Also, I omit the corn flakes.

i hate it when trying to print something. it makes you waste a piece of paper

I haven't tried this yet, but am trying to print it out.

Mr. Food: may I use fresh shredded potatoes in this recipe??? I would probably add some finely chopped red peppers, also so crumbled bacon.

I make this all the time. I mix the soup, butter and cheese till melted. Then I stir in the potatoes and finally the sour cream. I top with what ever crackers or cereal I have in pantry. This is big for carry ins.

this easy and delicious dish, i made one change to it. I added chopped cooked chicken with a pinch of cheyeene pepper.

lala1941it says 8 inch pan that is 8x8 inch pan

use a 9x13 pan then it will all fit or else use a small roaster that works too. It will all get eaten no matter glass or tin pan.

recipe look good. where did you see 3/4 cup of butter? the recipe call for 1 stick which = 1/2 cup.

You still have not answered the size of pan question, I'm wondering about that also.

8 inch "square" means a pan that is 8X8.

The pan in this recipe is 8 x 8-inch. I hope this helps you! Thank you!

use a 9x13 pan

2 questions?? Are the potatoes defrosted first and isn't that a small size dish for all of that? I want to fix soon so please reply! Thanks

Yes, the potatoes are defrosted and all of the ingredients will fit into an 8-inch dish. Thank you for asking and enjoy!

I think someone should check the butter amount in this . You can not get 3/4 cup out of 1/2

Thank you so much for catching this! We made the correction in the instructions above. Step #2 should be 1/4 cup butter, not 3/4 cup. We appreciate you contacting us! Thanks again and enjoy!
