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—and my friend actually liked it better than her mom’s version. —Barb Templin, Norwood, Minnesota
Chive & Onion Hash Brown Potatoes Recipe photo by Taste of Home


  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1 container (8 ounces) spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages (20 ounces each) refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh chives, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cubed


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a Dutch oven, combine the first 5 ingredients; cook and stir over medium heat until blended. Stir in potatoes.
  2. In a greased 13x9-in. or 3-qt. baking dish, layer a third of the hash brown mixture and 2/3 cup Swiss cheese; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon chives. Repeat layers. Top with remaining hash brown mixture and cheese; dot with butter.
  3. Bake, covered, 35 minutes. Bake, uncovered, until edges begin to brown and potatoes are heated through, 10-20 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with remaining chives.
