  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    In large bowl, combine 1 pint (2 cups) sour cream, 1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 tablespoon garlic salt, 1 cup chopped onions, 1 bag (30 oz) frozen country-style shredded hash brown potatoes, partially thawed, and 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz); stir until well blended.
  • 3
    Pour into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish.
  • 4
    Bake 45 minutes.

  • Mix up the creamy potatoes and spoon them into a large slow cooker. Cook them on LOW for 4 to 5 hours, stirring occasionally. Transport them to a potluck or set them out on a buffet for a brunch.

Expert Tips

  • Make up the recipe the night before serving, cover well, and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator, uncover and let stand 30 minutes before baking. Bake as directed and move on to prepare other more last-minute menu items.
  • Sprinkle the top with chopped green onion or a handful of finely chopped parsley or other fresh herbs before serving.
  • For a twist, try 1 bag (32 oz) frozen southern-style diced hash brown potatoes instead of country-style shredded hash brown potatoes. Their chunkier texture holds up well whether baked or slow cooked, and they’re a good partner as a side dish to roasted meats.
