That alone is cause for celebration and cooking, in my opinion! Plus the fact that I don't get to cook nearly as much now that my kids live far away from home. So, for this occasion I fixed a brisket, Hashbrown Casserole, Asian Coleslaw, fresh fruit and rolls. And set a pretty table (because, again, I don't get to do this much anymore):Here is the method to the madness that is Hashbrown Casserole (recipe to follow):
This has become a family favorite of ours- and you will see why when you make it!
1 (32-oz) pkg frozen shredded potatoes thawed
1/2 C plus 1/4 C butter, melted and divided
1 small onion, chopped
1 can cream chicken soup
1 (8 oz) sour cream
½ C milk
2-3 C grated cheese
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 C crushed corn flakes
Sauté onion in ½ C butter until transparent. Set aside to cool. Combine soup, sour cream, milk, salt and pepper. Place potatoes, cheese and onions in large bowl. Fold in soup mixture. Place in greased 9x13 casserole dish. Combine corn flakes and butter. Sprinkle over top. Bake 350 for 35 minutes or until bubbly.
