a thanksgiving favorite...CHEESY POTATOES!

i'm aliiiivvveeeeeeeeeeeee! 

i have been the worst blogger ever this month. lots of things happening...not that that's an excuse.. but it is what it is. even though i haven't been blogging, i have been cooking, so i have a few new recipes to share in the near future.

i wanted to get back into blog mode with a recipe that i LOVE for thanksgiving- cheesy potato casserole. this recipe isnt anything fancy schmancy, and a lot of you have probably had or made some rendition of this at one time or another, but, here it goes:

you will need:

1 (DEFROSTED) 2lb bag frozen potatoes. i use the 'southern style' cubed ones but have heard of people using shredded hashbrowns
1/4 c melted butter
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 c (or more to taste) chopped white onion
1 1/2 can cream of chicken soup
1 c milk
1 c sour cream
1 8oz bag shredded cheddar cheese

3 c crushed corn flakes
1/2 c melted butter

mix all the ingredients (minus topping) together in a 9x13 casserole dish

i like to crush the corn flakes in a big ziplock bag, then add the melted butter

pour the butter/cornflake mix over the potato mix

bake casserole at 375 degrees for 40 minutes, let cool for 5.

that's it!!!!! it will be a hit, promise!

have a fab turkey day. see you soon!
