Living in Texas myself, I had to review your recipe! Truly I haven't tried it yet...it is almost identical to the recipe for Hashbrown Casserole which I adore. Your recipe calls for more butter. On the other that I made, I added fresh bacon bits at the end which I believe would be great on yours as well. Thanks for posting a nice easy side dish
Well, I have to admit ... this is a type of recipe I usually wouldn't make, with the soup, sour cream and all the cheese. But, now and then I give them a try. This was very good. Her brother just got back from Iraq and she wanted a very "homey / comfort food" type of meal. She had slow grilled beer can chicken and steaks, green beans and bacon slow cooked, corn on the cob, etc. You get the idea. And I brought the spuds. They were a hit. I made 2 pans and not a drop was left. They all asked for he recipe which I gave them and told them where I got it. I only used 1/2 cup and butter vs margarine. And, my store was out of the southwestern style hash browns, so I added green and red pepper and onion to mine which was the same thing. I used the low salt soup and low fat NOT NO fat sour cream. I also used a mix of mild and sharp cheddars. But I don't think that altered the recipe in any way. I may try a mix of mozzarella or monterey jack mixed in with the cheddar or even a jalapeno jack mixed in for just a little change. But the cheddar was just fine.
I will definitely make it again. I was very surprised at how good it was and how much of it I ate ... TOO much. Seriously, very good and a huge hit, especially by the returning brother.
Thx for a great easy recipe!
I have been making this dish for over 20 years. With the sour cream and cheese, the butter/margarine is really not necessary...you will never notice it is missing if you leave it out. Chopped onion, green bell pepper and red bell pepper is a must. My recipe calls for 1 pint sour cream. You can mix everything together ahead of time and stick in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake. This is our favorite side dish when we grill/barbecue.
