Food History

Potatoes have been a staple in global diets since their introduction to Europe from the Americas in the 16th century. Cream cheese in recipes started gaining popularity in the United States in the early 20th century, leading to rich, creamy dishes like this.

Timeline

  • 16th Century: Potatoes were introduced to Europe from the Americas.
  • Early 1900s: Cream cheese becomes popular in American cooking.
  • Late 1900s: Frozen food innovations lead to the widespread use of products like Ore-Ida’s frozen potatoes, making dishes like this more convenient.

Recipe Discussion

This recipe starts with sautéed onions and garlic for a flavorful base, followed by a rich sauce made from either cream of celery or mushroom soup mixed with cream cheese. The frozen hash browns are layered with this creamy sauce in a casserole dish, creating a deliciously gooey and comforting side dish. The final touch of shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese adds a nice, melty texture.

Serving Suggestions

Creamy Autumn Potatoes are versatile and pair well with grilled meats, roasted chicken, or even as part of a vegetarian feast. They’re especially good with a simple roasted pork loin or a beef roast.

Preparation Tips

  • Cheese Options: Experiment with different types of cheese for toppings; Gouda or Swiss cheese can offer a nice variation.
  • Cream Cheese: Cut the cream cheese into small cubes to ensure it melts evenly and blends smoothly into the sauce.
  • Layering: Be sure to cover each layer of potatoes completely with sauce for consistent flavor and texture.
  • Baking Tip: Covering the dish while baking prevents the top from browning too quickly before the potatoes are tender.
