Hash Brown Potato Casserole

Teresa Ambra
This lovely side dish is so rich and creamy. Hash browns are combined with green onions, cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, cheddar cheese and then covered with sour cream and onion potato chips for additional flavor. Excellent choice for company or holiday dinners.

  • 1 Rolling Pin (to crush potato chips; or crush them in your hands)

  • 1 cup Lay’s sour cream & onion potato chips crushed (measure after crushing)

  • Mix potatoes, onions, soup, sour cream and cheese in a large mixing bowl.
  • If mixture seems dry, add a little milk to it--up to a half cup.
  • Put into greased 9x13” casserole dish.
  • Measure out crushed potato chips.
  • Sprinkle about a cup over top.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 350° for about an hour.

NOTE: I added ½ cup milk to the mixture before putting in a casserole dish.
