This is an excellent, easy recipe of pure comfort food; potatoes! There is never any left when I serve it at family functions, potlucks, or at my catering parties! I like to make 2 batches and freeze one for later as it does freeze very well! I hope everyone enjoys this as much as my family and friends to!

THANK YOU for this simple and ever so tasty side dish. It looks "awful" when you first stir it up but once it starts bubbling and browning in the oven...YUM! I'll definately make this again and again for that "different" potato dish. (P.S. I sprinkled on fresh bacon bits when I put on the cheese the last 5 minutes)

This has been a standard in my house for years. When I made it for the in-laws, they started requesting it at all the family gatherings!

I use 32 ounces of potatoes and mix in the 2 cups of cheddar instead of sprinkling it on top. Then I also add a crushed potato chip topping. Crush up enough chips to cover the top, then drizzle about 4 tbls of melted butter over the top.

This has been our go to Holiday potatoes for years and are a must with Easter Ham. There are many hash brown casseroles out there but we like the simplicity of this (as the kids say no yucky stuff like olives!). My daughter loves these so I often make just for us but freeze 1/2 of the batch before baking for another meal. I also add onions 'cuz I put onion in just about everything.
