  • 3 pounds Russet potatoes peeled & diced
  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick) melted
  • 1/3 cup scallions chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar divided
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan divided


  • Prep the potatoes and then boil them until just tender. Drain thoroughly, then add them to a greased 9x13 casserole dish. Preheat oven to 350F and move the rack to the middle position.
  • Meanwhile, add the condensed soup, sour cream, melted butter, scallions, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and half of each cheese to a prep bowl. Stir it together until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture over the potatoes then toss (I use two spoons) and smooth them out in an even layer.
  • Top the potatoes with the remaining cheeses and then bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes.
  • Let it sit for 5-10 minutes prior to serving.


  • You may use frozen cubed hashbrowns instead (or even the shredded kind). Cooking time may slightly vary.
  • Serves 6-10 depending on serving size.
