I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner in just over a week! Thanksgiving has become one of my favorite holidays because it's all about food, family and friends without the stress of gift buying, decorating and massive to-dos lists.
Today, I'm sharing a potato recipe you might want to consider if you're looking to change things up a bit from traditional mashed potatoes. A common version of it is found on Mr. Dell's Potatoes packaging and website. My mom made this for any occasion when I was growing up. The recipe has all the good stuff - savory cheese and crunch. (You can find more of our holiday dinner recipes here.)
Cheesy, Cornflake Potato Casserole

Preheat oven to 375° F.
Melt 1/4 cup butter and pour into 9 x 13 inch baking dish and then add 1/2 of the hash browns.
In a bowl, mix soup, sour cream and milk.
Add 1/2 of the mixture over hash browns and sprinkle the half of the cheese on top.
Add the rest of the hash browns, pour remainder of mixture on top and sprinkle the remaining cheese.
