Creamy Potato Casserole

      As I mentioned before, I live on a farm with my husband and our 2 sons.  They are hard working males and are big eaters.  They believe all meals need "meat and taters" so I love finding new potato recipes.  This potato recipe has been around forever and tweaked here and there by about everyone.  Some people call these "Funeral Potatoes", some call it "Party Potatoes", and I just call it my Creamy Potato Casserole.  no matter what you want to name these, they are always delicious!!!

16 oz. tub of sour cream
3 strips crispy bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 T. chopped dehydrated onion
1 tsp. pepper


      Preheat your oven to 375.  Spray a 9"x13" cake pan with cooking spray and set aside.
      Mix together all the ingredients, except for the corn flakes and butter.  Pour this mixture into your pan.

       This casserole freezes really well.  If I plan on using it for just one meal or to give to someone then I make these up in 3 small (8"x8") foil square pans and freeze them.  I first cover the dish with cling wrap and then cover with foil.  They last a long while in the freezer this way and do not get frost bitten.

  1. Hi! Been having a blast looking at all your yummy recipes. At the top of this recipe you said you're always looking for new potato dishes. Since I've gotten so many good recipes from your site I'd like to share this potato recipe with you - that you're bound to love. It was served at a long-standing restaurant here in Connecticut, by the shore, that has since closed. It's called Lighthouse Potatoes. It is absolutely decadent and probably not very healthy so I guess you would serve it only on special holidays. How do I send the recipe to you? I will check back on this particular recipe of yours to see your answer.
