“This is from Best Recipes from the Backs of Boxes, Bottles, Cans and Jars. Don't know why they are called Campfire Potatoes. I did not use Smokey Sharp Cheese as the recipe calls for; I used sharp cheddar cheese.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup onion, chopped (I used 1/2 teaspoon dried onion flakes.)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup cheese, 4 oz. shredded (recipe called for Smokey Sharp cheese)
  • 34 cup milk
  • 12 ounces potatoes (1 pkg. frozen shredded hash brown potatoes)


  1. Saute onions in butter or margarine.
  2. Place in a shallow 1 quart baking dish or small skillet, brushed with butter. Add flour, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Add cheese.
  4. Pour milk over cheese.
  5. Top with frozen potatoes; cover.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 35 minutes, or until potatoes are completely thawed; mix well.
  7. Return to oven, uncovered, and bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
