This recipe is similar to Cracker Barrel's Hash Brown Casserole although not exactly the same. I use frozen hash browns or Simply Potato Hash Browns or their spicy version. Publix runs them on Buy One, Get One and I stock up when they do.
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup melted butter
2 lbs hash browns (thawed)
8 ounces of cheese (I always add more)
1 small onion diced
salt and pepper to taste
Heat your oven to 350 degrees and spray your pan with Pam. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake until golden and bubbly, about 35-40 minutes. For our brood, I double the recipe and bake in a 9 x 13 pan for about an hour.
