Hash Brown Broccoli Bake

Here's a perfect dish for a potluck or holiday buffet. It goes well with fish, poultry, pork or beef. Cheddar cheese can be substituted for Swiss. Often, I double the recipe to serve a crowd. —Jeanette Volker, Walton, Nebraska

    I'm seriously doubting the carbs here- potatoes (and any veggies from the ground) are higher in carbs. Potatoes by themselves are 16g carbs w/ almost no fiber. If anyone has trouble losing weight and thinks they're eating low-carb with these recipes, they're not.

    I LOVE this recipe! So, so good! One question though, can I make it a few hours ahead of baking time? Thank you for sharing!

    I made this as written and everyone loved it. Only suggestion was to add more broccoli. Great for company and pot-lucks!

    I enjoyed this dish and so did my family. I used gluten free cup for cup flour and the sauce thickened up nicely and crumbed up Rice Chex in the topping ( I think potato chips would work well too). I think this would even be good with some chicken in it.

    I made this as a side dish for Christmas dinner. Everyone loved it, including my nephew who hates broccoli. I will definitely be making this again.
