Her family must be crazy. But stop right there negative nancy… cornflake potatoes have been being made in my family for as long as I can remember and every skeptic that tastes them is amazed on how great they taste. So ready to be able to feed your family the best potato recipe in this entire world? Oh yes, I said it. Because it is so true…
*Warning: I usually post quick and easy recipes but this one may not be as quick as the others. That does not mean it is not worth the time and effort.
What you will need!
- stick of butter
- 3 Tbsp of flour
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 8 oz of sour cream
- 8 oz of extra sharp cheddar cheese (Block cheese, NOT shredded)
- 5 medium potatoes
Let’s get started!
Poke holes into the potatoes with a fork then cook in the microwave.
In a saucepan, cook together a 1/2 stick of butter, the flour, and salt. It should cook into a paste.
Add the milk, sour cream, and cut blocks of cheese into the pan. (Leave 1/4 block of cheese for the end.)
Peel potatoes into cubes into a large casserole dish. Pour the cheese sauce over the potatoes and coat them.
On top of the potato mixture, cut up of the rest of the cheese and lay it on top.
In another sauce pan, melt the other 1/2 of stick of butter. Add cornflakes into the pan to coat them.
Put the cornflakes on top of the potatoes and cheese slices.
Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
