These potatoes are good enough for company but easy enough for family.  The fresh potatoes are a great departure from the typical hash brown casserole and offer a different texture and flavor.  The grating is totally worth the extra effort.

Ingredients

  • 6 Idaho potatoes
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Ranch dressing mix (not pictured)
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs (also not pictured, sorry!)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Peel and grate potatoes on the large side of a box grater.
  2. Combine potatoes, cheese, mushroom soup, garlic powder, sour cream, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and Ranch dressing mix in a large bowl. Mix well. (Note on Ranch dressing mix: I use a small canister of ranch dressing mix that you can now buy.  If you do not have one of these puppies, you can just use about 2 tablespoons out of a packet mix.  A packet mix contains about 3 tablespoons, so you won’t need it all.)
  3. Turn out into a greased 9×13 casserole dish.  Sprinkle with bread crumbs and drizzle with melted butter.
  4. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 50 to 60 minutes.

  1. I am making these tonight! Some sort of chicken dish will go along with but haven’t found WHAT RECIPE for that yet! BUT I am making company potatoes for sure. Can’t wait to try these!

    • I hope y’all enjoy them, Marisa!!

      • Decided to have the Company Potatoes with your Chicken Bog – and YES I grew up with this recipe with some adaptations depending on who’s house you were at when you ate it but all the same basically! Doing yours tonight n can’t wait! Almost done – smelling good! Will take some pictures and share on my FB page I’m sure! 🙂

  2. When my wife was pregnant with our son she had a craving for potatoes and sometimes that’s the only thing that would stay down. Before he was born we laughingly referred to our son as “Tater Man”. He’s 18 now and loves potatoes as much as his Mom. Can’t wait to surprise them with this recipe. Looks delish. Thanks Stacey.

  3. Stacey, Love the idea of company potatoes! My family has a similar recipe – we call them funeral potatoes… we always seem to eat them at the wake after a funeral. Oh my. Happy Day! Tracie

  4. Can you just use shredded hash browns?

  5. These look amazing! Love potatoes in any form!!

  6. Do you think red skin potatoes would work as well?

  7. I will be serving 12 people Christmas Day. Should I double the recipe? Didn’t see how many this serves.

  8. Can you use a crock pot for these?

  9. These look delicious, I make a potato casserole similar to this. But can’t wait too try these. I am guessing you used a 9 x 13 in. casserole dish, didn’t say but that’s what it looked like you used in your pics. And also for the bread crumbs, is that just regular bread crumbs or could you use Panko bread crumbs? Thanks for a nice looking recipe. Will let you know how the crew likes them, (sure they will) 🙂

  10. I tried your recipe and instead of putting bread crumbs on top I used crushed french fried onion rings mixed with some grated parmasan cheese. It was fabulous! Thank you so much for this recipe, Stacey!

  11. Amy Harrell says:

    Would leaving out the mayo matter?. Sounds great except the mayo.

    • Unfortunately, I can’t recommend leaving the mayo out. You could try substituting something like greek yogurt, but I’m not sure what the result will be.

  12. Can I prepare the dish the night before and cook it the next day?

  13. Stacey, these potatoes were soooo delicious! I made them for dinner tonight, along with some breaded pork chops baked in the oven, and garlicky sautéed spinach. What a great dinner. My husband ate a ton of the potatoes (three servings, but who’s counting, lol). I will definitely make these again and again, and I think it would be a great dish for the holidays. I used panko breadcrumbs, by the way.

    Also, thanks for the tip about that large canister of the Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix. Although I just made this recipe tonight I did find this post a couple of months ago and it made me look for that large canister instead of buying the individual packets at my local supermarket or the four packet box at WalMart. Btw, I was using so much of it because we sort of became addicted to your Bacon Ranch Potato Salad over the summer. I’ve made it so many times.

    Anyway, in case anyone is interested, that large (16 oz) canister of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix is a very good price at WalMart, but I found it for an even better price at BJ”s Wholesale Club (they’re like Costco, or Sam’s Club). Pus, I had a BJ’s coupon for it, so the price was really great.

    Thanks again for this recipe, Stacey! I will be making it often, including over the holidays.
