For years I begged my mom for this recipe, always saying I'd make it every week if I could. She didn't give it to me until I turned 24, probably waiting until I was old enough to understand it's a holiday only dish! Very rich and comforting.

  • Stir the hash browns, sour cream, Cheddar cheese, celery soup, onion flakes, 1/2 cup melted butter, and salt together in a 9x12-inch baking dish.

  • Stir the bread crumbs and 1/2 cup melted butter in a small bowl; top the hash brown mixture with the bread crumb mixture. Do not mix topping until right before you put the dish in the oven, otherwise it will become soggy.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the topping is golden brown, about 45 minutes.

I used unsalted butter and plain bread crumbs as well as skip the additional salt and came upon a beautiful finished product...even though my picture is a bit lacking. We served this for brunch with Crockpot Scrambled Eggs assorted breakfast meats and fruit salad etc... Thanks Jessica for sharing your Mom's recipe it was a nice addition to our table. Read More
