Restaurant-Style Hashbrown Casserole
This is the perfect side dish to bacon, eggs, ham, and plate of fresh fruit at your next breakfast or brunch. Prep tip: To save time in the morning, you can mix all the ingredients (with the hash browns straight from the freezer) the night before, cover, and refrigerate. The next morning, let it come up to room temperature for about 20 minutes before baking.
Asiago Hash Browns
"For years I have made a hash brown casserole with Cheddar cheese and cream of chicken soup. This is a kicked-up, grown-up, gotta-have-more version," says Navy_Mommy. Use aged asiago for more bite; fresh asiago has a milder flavor.
