A favorite at our family gatherings during the holidays, cheesy potato casserole is just about everything you could ever hope for from a casserole.
CHEESY POTATO CASSEROLE
PREP: 15 min. COOK: 45 min. TOTAL: 60 min.
1 bag frozen hash-browns (these can be shredded or cubed, both work well. I personally prefer the cubed for texture purposes.)
1 can cream of chicken
1 lb. extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
8 oz. sour cream
20 Ritz crackers (2 rolls), crushed
2 sticks butter
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a large pot over medium heat, melt one stick of butter. Add in the bag of hash-browns and allow to soften (about 10 minutes).
In a separate bowl, mix together the cream of chicken, sour cream, and cheese.
Add the mixture to the pot of hash-browns and mix to combine.
Pour potato mixture into a 13x9 inch baking dish and spread out evenly.
Pour the crushed crackers evenly over the top of the potato mixture.
Melt the second stick of butter and drizzle it evenly over the top of the casserole.
Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Serve alongside any meal for a true element of comfort.
