Easy, quick, old-time side recipe to accompany smoking or grilling menu - I usually use a 13x9x2 buttered pan.
2 pounds frozen hash brown potatoes
4 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 10.75 ounce cream of chicken or mushroom soup
2 cups sour cream
1 stick melted butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, combine potatioes; 2 cups grated cheese; soup; sour cream; butter; onion; and seasoning
Bake for 35 minutes; remove from oven and top with remaining 2 cups of grated cheese; return to oven and bake for 10 minutes longer
If helpful, prepare ahead of time (without baking) and freeze. If using an aluminum pan, it is easy to warm on the grill or in the smoker.
