Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • One 30-ounce bag frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, lightly thawed
  • One 10.5-ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded sharp yellow Cheddar
  • 1 1/2 cups lightly crushed corn flake cereal

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat in a skillet. Add the diced onion and cook, stirring, until soft and translucent, about 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant and softened, an additional 2 minutes.

In a bowl, toss together the cooked onions and garlic, hash brown potatoes, condensed soup, sour cream, Parmesan, salt, pepper and 1 1/2 cups Cheddar. Spread the mixture in a 9-by-13 inch casserole dish. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Top the casserole with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, corn flake cereal and melted butter.

Bake in the oven until it bubbles around the sides, about 1 hour.
