My Corn Flakes Potato casserole is simple to put together and the oven does all the work. Simple, easy to find ingredients, no prep work. Just mix up all the ingredients, spread in a pan, top with the corn flakes and bake. Simple.
Tips for making Corn Flakes Potato Casserole
Most Corn Flakes potato casserole recipes will call for cream of mushroom, I substitute canned cheese sauce (available right next to the cream of mushroom). It gives it an extra cheesy boost that everyone also loves.
Instead of corn flakes, try frosted flakes, the sugary cereal gives a sweet balance to the savory casserole.
Keep an eye on your casserole, since oven temps can differ, if your topping starts to brown too fast, just put a piece of tin foil on top to keep from burning.
During holidays, I love when I can put together something so simple and actually take in the holiday. I don’t like to stress about finding special ingredients and putting together something difficult. I just want a classic that I know my whole family will love. I’ve been enjoying this casserole since I was a kid and I hope you and your family enjoy this simple casserole and have a great holiday with full bellies and hearts!

Do you put the hashbrowns in frozen? or thawed out? can you use the fresh O’Brien ones?
Hi Cindy! I use frozen potatoes. If you use thawed or fresh ones, you can likely decrease the cooking time. Thanks for writing, enjoy!
Can you use normal shredded hash browns instead of cubed?
Hannah, I really like the cubed potatoes best for taste and texture.
I used frozen shredded hash browns instead of cubed and it turned out just fine!
This sounds amazing! My husband really hates sour cream are there any recommendations you have that I could use in place of the sour cream?
My husband hates sour cream, too! He does really like these potatoes. I haven’t tried it, but I know people sometimes substitute plain yogurt for sour cream.
Can I make this the night before and refrigerate it?
Hi Sherri! I use frozen potatoes and make it the day of, I haven’t made it the day before. I think it would work, the potatoes may lose some texture and you could likely decrease the cook temp. Good luck!
