These cheesy hash browns were so popular at the morning meetings of our Mothers of Preschoolers group that we published it in our newsletter. It's a great dish for busy moms because it can be prepared ahead of time. It's perfect for brunches or to serve on Christmas morning. It's creamy, comforting and tasty. —Karen Burns, Chandler, Texas

Cheesy Hash Browns Tips

How can you make cheesy hash browns your own?

Potato casserole recipes are so fun to customize! Try adding a crunchy topping such as cornflakes or crushed Ritz crackers tossed with butter. Or sprinkle on some french-fried onions. Add some color and sweetness by stirring in sauteed chopped bell peppers and onions. Replace half the sour cream with prepared French onion dip for an easy way to turn up the flavor.
