Mary’s Cheesy Potato Casserole with Crunchy Corn Flakes Topping
Ah, the venerable casserole. It’s a stalwart of the American kitchen, and for many people is often their first foray into home cooking. While its star has risen and fallen in terms of vogue, it has recently seen a resurgence. It remains a versatile and beloved staple of family meals, perhaps due to its infinite variety; you can make one with tuna, hamburger, or even Tater Tots. The recipe below is one my favorite takes on the casserole, and utilizes a mix of hash brown potatoes, cheddar cheese, and corn flakes (!) for a nice layer of crunch on the top.
