Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

We love the shredded hash brown potatoes, almost any way you could make them.  I decided to try something different with them yesterday and it was delicious!



These are my ingredients, well, except for the sour cream which I forgot to include in the picture.


In a large bowl, I mixed together the hash brown potatoes, 1 1/2 cups of grated cheese, the chopped green onion, minced garlic, thyme, mushroom soup and sour cream.



I spread that into the prepared pan and then melted the margarine.

I added the crushed crackers to the melted margarine and mixed it together with a fork until crumbly


I sprinkled the cracker mixture on top of the potato mixture and then the remaining grated cheese.


Cooked it at 375 degrees for 40 minutes and then served.

  1. I’ve done something similar but I just grated some raw potatoes. If you fill a bowl of water with a teaspoon or two of lemon juice dissolved in it you can dump the gratings into it as you work so they don’t turn that yucky color. Sometimes, though, it’s cheaper and more convenient to just buy the hash brown style frozen stuff. This looks deliciously fattening! Also, I’m thinking about how good this would be with some spicy chorizo in there. Even more deliciously fattening!
