I usually bring the macaroni and cheese to all the family functions, however one time my sister Becky brought a hashbrown casserole and I instantly fell in love with it. I have made this recipe several times and had given up making it because I could not get it right. Lets face it, sometimes someone else makes it better. Becky is my younger sister and one of the sweetest people I know. She is always the first one to offer her time, even when she does not have it to give. Her two boys keep her on her toes. As if that did not keep her busy enough she also watches my daughter for me now on a daily basis. I could never repay her for the kindness she has shown me. We are only three and a half years apart and we have been pretty close our entire life. We even talked for years about having a child at the same time so they could grow up together. Well wouldn't you know it, my daughter and her son are three and a half months apart. They are pretty close too.
One time when we were younger I remember getting out the recipe box and "creating" a meal. I remember we had a pan of water and added all kinds of things in there. One of the ingredients I remember most was lettuce. I believe it was supposed to be some kind of vegetable soup. We cooked it up and wrote down the recipe. We thought we were the greatest cooks and served it up with pride. Thanks mom for letting us experiment in the kitchen. She told me some time back that the recipe card is still in moms recipe box. We had the best adventures growing up, my life would not have been the same without my sister. I love you Becky and you are a wonderful person, no matter what, do not let anyone tell you different.
A couple days ago I came home to find my daughter was "cooking dinner" for me. She had her dad even set the timer on the stove. This was so cute I had to get my camera and snap a picture. Reminds me of my sister and I cooking when we were younger. Kylee is my little chef and any chance she gets she is right there with me cooking. I have to admit it is a struggle but she loves it. By this picture I think I am making an impression on her. Love that little girl to pieces.
Lets get to this recipe.....
(cream of chicken soup, sour cream, hash browns, and cheddar cheese)
Mix the soup and sour cream together with some salt and pepper. I added some onion powder because my family is not a huge fan of onions. My sister sautes some onions and adds them in.
Pour the soup mixture over the hash browns. She actually said she uses shredded but I used the cube potatoes instead.
Mix in the cheese with the potato mixture. Becky informed me that this was just a variation of her recipe because she uses colby jack cheese.
I added some more cheese on top, we love cheese! Pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40-45 minutes.
Oh the cheese!!
Becky's Hashbrown Casserole
1 bag of hash brown potatoes
2 cups shredded cheese, your choice, if you prefer cheese on top add more.
1 8 oz sour cream
1 can of cream of chicken soup
Partially thaw the hashbrowns so they are easy to stir. Combine the soup, sour cream, salt and pepper. Mix in the cheese and add into a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Cook for 40-45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
I have officially hit the one month mark for my blog and I am enjoying every minute of it. Thanks for hanging in there with me. The best is yet to come!
