  • 16 oz sour cream low-fat or regular
  • 12 oz cream of chicken soup
  • 32 oz frozen diced hash browns
  • 1 cup cubed ham
  • 8 oz medium cheddar cheese grated
  • 4 oz monterey jack cheese grated
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion minced
  • 1/2 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika

For the Topping

  • 3 cup cornflake cereal 2 cups crushed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a very large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, chicken soup, hash browns, ham, cheese, onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Transfer the mixture to a 9x13-inch baking dish, pressing to form an even layer.
  • In a medium mixing bowl add the cornflakes. Crush into smaller pieces. Add the butter, then toss to combine. Sprinkle over the potato mixture.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour or until the edges begin to bubble. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.


  • I bought thick slices of ham from my deli counter to cut up.
  • You can use canned cream of chicken soup, however it will be slightly less than what the recipe calls for.
  • This dish can be refrigerated overnight (without the topping) and tossed into the oven an hour before serving.
