MODIFICATIONS FOR DIETARY RESTRICTIONS: VEGETARIAN, GLUTEN-FREE

A minor swap is needed to make these into vegetarian cheesy potatoes. To make these into gluten-free cheesy potatoes, a few substitutions will need to be made.

  • To make this into a vegetarian recipe, substitute cream of mushroom soup instead of using cream of chicken soup
  • For gluten-free cheesy potatoes, you will need to purchase gluten-free corn flakes and gluten-free cream of chicken soup. If your store does not carry gluten-free cream of chicken soup, you can make your own too.
Close up for a spoon with a big scoop of cheesy potato casserole with corn flakes. The spoon has just been scooped out of the 9x13 dish and is ready to serve.

EXPERT TIPS for delicious cheesy potatoes

Finding the herbes de Provence cheese I use. If you live in the lower 48 in the USA, you can order the same Herbes de Provence Cheddar Gruyere that I use online! They also sell their cheeses in stores across the USA. You can look here to see if it is sold in a store near you.

Can’t find the same cheese I use? No problem, you can make your own blend! Instead of using an 8oz block of Herbes de Provence Cheddar Gruyere, you can use 4oz of cheddar, 4oz of gruyere, and 1-2 Tbsp of Herbes de Provence.

Want to keep it classic? Use cheddar cheese. The classic recipe uses cheddar cheese only, and it is fantastic too. This is a great option for your cheesy potato casserole if you’re concerned picky eaters at the party may not like the added herbs.
