Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes Ingredients

This recipe for Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes couldn’t be any easier! Other than its time in the oven, comes together very quickly!  It’s definitely going to become a “go-to” side dish for us. The biggest change I would make the next time I make it is to double the batch! This recipe makes enough to fill an 8″ square pan and will likely feed around four or five people. I think doubling the recipe would be extremely easy and leftovers are never a bad thing. Also, Grandma’s recipe calls for 12 ounces of frozen southern hash brown potatoes. I was able to find those at my local Publix, but only in a 32 ounce bag. I’m guessing it would be hard to find a 12 ounce bag anymore, so doubling the recipe just makes good sense.

Grandma also offers up a lot of substitutions or variations on the recipe as well.  As she notes, the soup can either be cream of celery or mushroom but I think nearly any can of cream soup could work. For the potatoes, she also notes that you can use dinner fries, cottage fries or potatoes O’Brien – all of which could be great, too.

If you prefer, this Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes recipe can easily be made gluten-free as well, by swapping out the canned soup and making your own. I use this recipe to make my own sometimes and it really tastes great and is definitely healthier:
