Au Gratin Hash Browns

Family gatherings wouldn't be the same without this dish. It has been a family favorite since my mother first found it. Now our son, a cheese lover, makes the side dish for nearly every family function. We love its rich taste.—Kathy Brandenburg, Elkhorn, Wisconsin

    I followed the recipe except for the cornflakes and felt they were a little dry. The taste was very good. If I make them again I'd mix a little milk with the soup.
