Tried this for our big Christmas dinner to go with Prime Rib. Put it together the night before Christmas - HA! - Grating the potatoes was alot of work. I think that using frozen hash browns would be a great option to alleviate this problem. Baked it according to directions. I didn't add enough salt so had to have everyone add salt. It was ok - but not grate. I mean Great! :) I think more cheese would be a good idea and possibly sauteing the onions in butter to give it more flavor.
Thank you for posting this. I also love this recipe and have just moved and my recipes are buried away. I looked on line and ran across yours, I think that it is very similar, not sure if I added cheese, don't remember but this is one of our family favorites as well. I don't care for it with hashbrowns, it may be a bit more work with the grating of potatoes but that's the love put into it!
This was a winner at our house! Only 2 things I would do differently next time. 1) I would probably cut the amount of butter in half. I used a whole stick of butter like the recipe called for, but it was just oozing butter once it was dished out of the pan. 2) Instead of boiling and grating the potatoes, I think a bag of hash browns would work equally well and shorten the prep time. Was delicious served with Beaudacious Crock Pot Pork Roast. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.
