Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes 

Tomorrow is my weekly Drs appointment out of town so I thought I would try something different to make and post…. again… with the potatoes to have with dinner.  A different take on the frozen shredded potatoes. 

These are my ingredients.  I don’t think I forgot anything this time lol!

To start, I added the milk, mustard, garlic powder and cheese to a microwave safe bowl. 

I stirred it up and then microwaved it on high heat for about 6 minutes, stirring it every 60 to 90 seconds, until the cheese melted and it was smooth.

I added the shredded hash brown potatoes and mixed it to combine. 

I poured the mixture into my prepared 9 x 13 baking pan. 

And then baked it at 375 degrees for about an hour, until the top was browned and it was heated through. 

I ended up serving it with some pork chops I cooked in Greek salad dressing topped with a bit of cheese and some vegetables.

  1. I like your idea of using the microwave. I think I might try this tomorrow, but with freshly shredded potatoes. I don’t have access to these frozen things. Trust me, I’d rather use the frozen things, so much easier. I’m thinking I can cook freshly shredded potatoes in the micro in water, just to stick with your spirit of the microwave usage. This is a great way to make a potato pancake without having to fry and fuss.
