Colby Hash Browns

My family loves potato dishes, and this is one of our favorites. It's easy to assemble because it calls for frozen hash browns, so there's no peeling or slicing potatoes. When I take it to potlucks, I always return with an empty dish.—Kimberly Lund, Park City, Kansas

    great side dish!! Made this for our family cook out. I broiled the potatoes a little bit to crisp the tops up. Really good! Will make again. The leftovers will make great potato cakes!

    This is yummy. It is lighter tasting than those with sour cream and chicken or potato soup but just as good!

    This wasn't bad, but not my favorite cheesy hashbrown recipe. I agree with the reviewer who said the potatoes should be thawed first, and also about it being too salty. Next time I would definitely skip the added salt.

    We've had this recipe several times. It's easy and tasty.I usually skip heating the mixture in a skillet because I'm lazy. It's also good with cheddar cheese or with diced onion added in. Yum!
