These are so good!!
You will need:
1 bag of frozen hash brown potatoes (I've used cubes & shreds...either one works!)
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 16 oz. container of sour cream (reduced fat works fine)
1 8 oz. bag of shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 c. butter, melted (or if you're like me and think it's going to melt in the oven anyway??...just slice it up and mix it in!)
chopped onion, optional (I probably use about 1/4 - 1/2 cup)
salt & pepper, to taste
Mix all together in a large bowl and pour into 9x13 dish. Bake at 350 for about 45-60 minutes.
Some people sprinkle the top with chip crumbs or corn flakes...I prefer mine without, but it's up to you!
**This recipe is too much for our family to eat at a meal. I usually make the whole recipe, but freeze half of it in a ziploc bag or a glass dish that be put in the freezer. When I am ready to use them, I thaw them and bake according to the directions.
