Party Potatoes (Without Condensed Soup)

  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • ½ large yellow onion, diced
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk (I even used skim)
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
  • 26-ounce bag frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
  • ½ cup light sour cream
  • Topping:
  • 2 cups of lightly crushed cornflakes
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • In a large pot over medium heat, add the butter and onion. Cook until the onion is softened and translucent, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Add the flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute.
  • Add the chicken broth and milk to the mixture. Add each one slowly while whisking.
  • Add the salt, pepper and thyme and stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce then simmer, stirring frequently, until the mixture is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese until smooth.
  • Fold in the thawed hash browns until well combined.
  • Then in the sour cream. Spread the mixture into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
  • Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the mixture.
  • Bake at 325 for 45 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
