COMMENT:
Which type of frozen hash browns are best, the shredded hash browns or the cubed hash browns? We have both in our freezer case here in Phoenix.

Thanks in advance.

I have been making this recipe for many, many years...always a star at potlucks or pitch-ins, requested at family gatherings, and a staple at our house Christmas and Easter morning. Quick and easy to make, can be "tweaked" to your liking by changing the "cream of something" soup, the addition of crumbled bacon or cooked crumbled sausage if you choose... Be generous on the sour cream and cheese measurements, and cover with foil for the first 15 minutes if your oven either runs hot or you don't like your topping too brown or crispy, and you will be fine; this recipe is not for the faint of heart and definitely not for those on a low fat, low cholesterol diet, although a taste won't hurt and is a treat for the taste buds--that's why we dont make it every day...this is recipe for THE hash brown casserole at Cracker Barrel...a family favorite worthy of more than 5 stars! We love it and our seemingly otherwise culinary cultured family always wants to "belly up" to the table with fork in hand whenever this casserole comes out of the oven.

SO good! Not healthy at all but delicious. Had this for brunch over the weekend and there wasn't a crumb left.

I'm going to be really low on oven space and was wondering if this would work in a crock pot?

I have made these potatoes for the Holiday's and for pot luck get togethers...I am always asked for the recipe! You can tweak them to your taste and still be a hit!...Try adding two small cans of roasted peeled green chiles...etc..You will be surprised!

These did turn out to be excellent potatoes, but I found the crumb topping to be a bit overpowering. I made them again, but cut the crumbs in half. They're still excellent either way you make them!

I havent made this dish yet but it sounds extremely similar to the one that my grandmother used to make and hers was DELICIOUS. I HIGHLY recommend this dish for parties
