Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. This recipe was adapted from one my mom used to make. I just don't enjoy peeling potatoes all morning so when I discovered Simply Potatoes shredded hash browns could be substituted, it made a good recipe great. This is for a crowd but can be cut in half, of course then the name would not apply so I kept it the way we make it when we go camping.
