  • 8 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 10 oz can cream of onion soup
  • 1 1/3 cups sour cream not low fat
  • 12 oz extra sharp cheddar cheese grated and divided
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 32 oz bag frozen diced hash brown potatoes
  • 1 cup crushed kettle cooked potato chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9x13 glass baking dish and set aside.
  • In a very large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and cream of onion soup. Then whisk in the sour cream, 8 oz (2 cups) of the shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese and the salt and pepper.
  • Fold in the diced hash brown potatoes.
  • Spread the potato mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. 
  • Then top the cheese layer evenly with the crushed potato chips.
  • Cover the dish with foil and bake for 45 - 50 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and continue baking until the cheesy top of the casserole is bubbly, about 15 minutes more. Remove and allow to set for about 5 minutes before serving. 


Cheesy potatoes can be made a day ahead of time. Store the potato mixture in the baking dish, covered tightly with foil, in the refrigerator. Then bake according to recipe directions the next day.
