I enjoyed this much more than the casseroles that have cream soup in them. I added a little extra salt and real bacon bits and it was great! Next time I'm going to add a little sour cream too. Read More

Company worthy! Used what I had on had which was mozzarella cheese and refrigerated shredded hash browns instead of frozen. Kept everything else the same and we loved it. Thanks Robbie....great side dish! Read More

very good I liked this because it was not soooo rich like other similar casseroles that can be so cheesy. Will make this again for sure! By the way you could even make this spicier by throwing in assorted herbs. Thanks! Read More

This recipe is a great breakfast recipe. It is quick & easy & very tasty. I did not do the microwave thing (There was NO WAY my dish was fitting into my microwave). I just mixed the cheese up real good with the hash browns & minced garlic (using my hands). I added a dash of cayenne and a LOT of cracked black pepper. I baked it for 25 minutes & then topped it with more cheese & baked it for 5 more minutes. It came out really tasty. Read More

This was fine; however the bottom portion was soggy as the milk and stock did not all get absorbed (perhaps baking it longer would have helped though I followed the suggested baking time). The top portion was good - cheesy and crunchy. Another problem may be the definition of hashbrowns...I used what some people call home fries small sort of diced potatoes sold frozen in bags...

This is a great recipe - but I used mozzarella cheese and added cooked diced ham to make it a main dish meal. Read More

I didn't really like this. My biggest problem was the instructions. The microwaving part was confusing. The house got too hot and it seemed like it took alot longer to cook than the recipe said. There was alot leftover at the end of the week when I went to clean out the fridge. Read More

This one quickly became a favorite cheesy potato dish in our house. Love that it is broth based and can be tweaked to reduce fat... Read More
