Hi Melissa, I saw you mention a hash brown casserole that you had at cracker barrel. I've never eaten there, but here's a recipe my sister gave me that is delicious and it might be close to what you had....

16 oz. frozen shredded hash browns- thawed

1 can potato soup -undiluted

1 8oz sour cream

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup parmesean cheese

Comine ingredients and mix well. Put in baking dish and bake in 350 degree oven for 40-50 minutes. Enjoy!

Thanks Annie, I will give it a try. I wonder if I can shred my own potatoes and then proceed as the recipe calls for? That is what I will try to do!! I will let you all know how it works out...

I got a recipie sort of like that at Wal-Mart of all places-they had a rack of free recipies in thier produce section-I tinkered with it some-heres my version-cook 6-8 regular size peeled whole potatos (use that potato water for sourdough!) then run the potatoes through the slicer shredder on your food processer, then toss with sour cream-I only used about 8 oz, a little salt and garlic, and put in a casserole dish. Cover with shredded cheddar cheese, and bake til cheese is bubbly- about 20 min-half hour in 350 degree oven-I made it with meatloaf and put it in the last bit of time with the meatloaf. the casserole Annie is talking about is really good!!!! Its popular here as a pot luck dish. My altered Walmart dish is not quite so rich-less calories and a little cheaper. I guess its the plain everyday dish to Annies Company dish!

I added a shredded sweet potato and topped with Italian seasoned bread crumbs.

Melissa, there's a very easy hash brown recipe in Joy of Cooking that adds lemon juice, salt, pepper, and fresh parsley to the grated potatoes. I had it for dinner last night (it was a breakfast-for- dinner night). I'll have to keep going and try the casserole.

Thank you Annie----are you a veggie lover also????? I can't remember!!

Hi Melissa, my sister has used fresh potatoes and they work great. In fact, they're probably even better. Cindy, next time I make them, I'm going to add some garlic to them. What a great idea, I never thought of it. Sonda, I'm not a vegetarian, but could probably be real easy. I eat very little of the meat when I fix it, unless it's mixed in with the dish, and I usually put more time and energy into the other dishes of the meal. I've never thought of it, but when I plan a meal, I think of what starch and veggie first and then the meat is usually and afterthought! I don't have a problem with eating meat, I just think it's really boring taste wise, compared to what a person can do with the veggies! Dave's always kidding me about my love for potatoes (I can't hardly make a meal without them). He's a rice lover!!!
