I got this recipe from my Mother. I'm not sure where she got it from, but I'm glad she found it. It really is an impressive alternative to a plain potato side dish.
2 pounds frozen hashbrowns (shredded)
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups (16 oz) sour cream
2 cups (16 oz) grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1. Spray 13 x 9 baking dish and put in frozen hashbrowns, and let thaw.
2. When hashbrowns are thawed...preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. Mix all other ingredients together, pour over hashbrowns, and mix slightly.
4. Bake 1 hour
***Can top with buttered breadcrumbs during the last 15 minutes if baking.
