The layer of sour cream & cream of mushroom soup, actually tastes like a layer of country gravy in this layered breakfast casserole. My 13 y/o son does NOT like potatoes, except McD's french fries...yeah, go figure. :) But, he LOVES this breakfast casserole made with potato patties (hash brown squares) He first had it at a church free-will offering breakfast, and actually went back for seconds.
