This is a recipe that has circulated around my church in many different forms. This is my favorite version. Warning it is not a diet food. The buttery corn flakes add a nice texture to the dish.

1/2 cup Butter; melted
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup; 10.75 ounces
1 container sour cream; 8 ounces

This is the same basic recipe I use. Awesome with holiday ham. I also partially thaw potatoes first. Use cream of celery soup (mushroom-haters in family) which adds a nice taste.

This is the same recipe as my mom's. It's been one of my favorites for 20+ years!!

I like to have the hash browns slightly frozen and slightly thawed so that they keep their structure and don't turn to mush. If they are fully frozen the ingredients will freeze and not mix well but if they are fully thawed then they will become too mushy. I also think it tastes best when the onion is finally minced so that the onion doesn't overpower the dish. [I posted this recipe.]
