A creamy, buttery potato side-dish. My mom made this a lot when I was younger. It is easy and very yummy!


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Grease an 8x8 pan. Place half of hashbrown patties in bottom. Top with half of butter, cutting in pats to distribute evenly. Sprinkle with garlic powder.
  3. Put remaining patties, in an opposite direction of first layer, on top. Top with remaining butter and garlic powder. Pour half and half over entire dish.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until bubbly. May top with shredded chedder cheese during last few minutes of cooking time.

This recipe is terrific! I wanted something different from the standard mashed potatoes as a side to turkey meatloaf and this hit the spot! Thanks for the recipe!

I make this recipe too using more patties and a 9 x 13 pan. We use more half-and-half (3 1/2 cups), no garlic powder (but what a good idea!) and also add parmesan (from the green can). This is very rich and very delicious (and super easy and quick). Can make ahead and refrigerate until baking time, too.
