But not just any hash browns... They just scream Grandma's recipe file. This has been around for decades, easy to picture any of our Grannies serving this up at any number of Church Basements for those nostalgic Potluck suppers I love so much.
Yeap, this is the Cream of Mushroom soup recipe.
Yeap, this is the Corn Flakes crushed over the top recipe.
And Yeap, this is the potato casserole recipe that is perfect for those large gatherings. Easier than whipped potatoes, can be assembled in advance so all you have to do is bake (while the turkey rests).
And best of all, this is the pan of food that is on everyone's "Seconds" plate. It tastes so good that people can't get enough. If any dish is empty after the meal, this is that recipe!
All those new fangled side dishes out there, dozens (hundreds of dozens maybe) of new ways to make potatoes, but this is that recipe that sticks with you.
Grandma knew best.
Recently I started adding these to my Catering menu. I was amazed when first people ordered them and second that there were never ever left overs. PEOPLE LOVE THIS RECIPE!
