Easy & my go-to recipe when I need to bring a side dish to an event. Dish always comes home scraped clean.

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!

Hey, loridillon! This was not published as a vegetarian dish! It was a go-along to meat loaf in a full meal. My husband raved about it and gave it 5 stars. I thought it was good but just a tad too salty, as I used pre-shredded Colby cheese for convenience, and I think those pre-shredded cheeses are saltier than when you shred block cheese. If I use the pre-shedded again, I'll leave out the 1 teaspoon of salt. Also, the recipe doesn't say to do so, but I think the hash browns should be thawed and the excess water pressed out of them. See how that works.
