Had this at a church supper and one of the oldest ladies(75) at the church said her mom would make this as a little girl, and her mothers mother make it for her. I didn't even know corn flakes were around that long. Just looked it up and corn flakes hit the market on April 14,1896.
When mixed spread into a 9by11 pan that has been cooked with pam.
Pour melted butter into crushed cornflakes in small bowl and mix, when mix spread on top of hashbrown mix in baking pan. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until potatoes are done and corn flakes are golden brown.
