[Recipe] - Hashbrown Casserole

As promised last week, this week I have a new recipe for you - Hashbrown Casserole.  Again this past weekend we had a noon football game so the tailgate was all about brunch.  I decided to try out a new recipe and I think it's a keeper!

-2 lbs. frozen hash browns (Southern style), thawed (I thawed mine overnight so they were ready to go in the morning)
-1 stick melted butter
-1 tsp. salt
-1/2 tsp. pepper
-1 can cream of chicken soup (I went with Campbell's 98% fat free)
-1 pt. sour cream (Again to cut fat, went with fat free version)
-1/2 c. chopped onions (I used a white onion but green onion would be good too)
-10 oz. pkg. shredded cheddar cheese

-1 cup crushed corn flakes
-3 tbsp. melted butter

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix together all of the ingredients

3. Arrange mixture into a 9x13 backing dish

4. Sprinkle the Toppings mixture (crushed cornflakes and melted butter) onto the top of contents in the pan

5. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours (I baked mine for an hour and it was perfect)

6. Enjoy!
With my friend Meredith at our tailgate - it was such a fun tailgate and game!

Hope you guys enjoy this recipe - happy cooking :)
