Chive & Onion Hash Brown Potatoes Recipe

Chive & Onion Hash Brown Potatoes Recipe

A friend once told me about a potato dish her mother used to make. She remembered that Swiss cheese and butter were standouts. Here's my re-creation. She actually liked it better than her mom’s version. —Barb Templin, Norwood, MN

"Excellent dish! I made this today, as a side for the roast beef I made for dinner. I added 1/2 cup sliced scallions, but no other changes. The potatoes were creamy and delicious, with a crispy top and perfect onion flavor. This is a keeper!"

"I had intended to cut the recipe in half, and so only bought a small bag of hash browns. However, I forgot this as I was mixing the cream ingredients. Still turned out great! Just wish my daughter wasn't so picky so I could make it again."
