Has these at my grandson's baptism party and boy were they good! If it's been posted before, I'm sorry for the repeat.

OK, here is the recipe for "cheesy potatoes"

2 pound pkg. frozen hash browns
1/2 cup butter-melted
1 - 16 OZ. French onion dip
1 can broccoli & cheese soup
1/4 cup chopped onion
8 OZ. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

mix butter, dip, soup, onion and cheese, stir in frozen hash browns.

spread evenly into a 9" X 13"

Bake at 350 for 2 hours or until golden brown.

Hope they like it!

wonder what would happen if you skipped the butter, and reduced the onion dip and used bacon bits instead?

Might be too dry Mousie.
Try low fat dip or fat free and use the heart smart margarine in place of butter maybe. Hmmm maybe I will try that. It sounds so yummy.

I rarely follow a recipe letter for letter, it's too much fun to be creative and play with the flavors.

You can also use cream of chicken soup instead of broccoli, forget the dip, and just add sour cream. Bake for one hour, uncovered.

Considering we are having Ham for dinner i don't want to use chicken soup....also I will like the zing the dip would add instead of the plain sour cream. But thanks for the help anyways

Thanks again Ellie for posting this.... I am not a big fan of AuGratin Potatoes and this is a nice tasty alternative!

There is alot of *liquid* in this recipe so it needs time to cook down...... I cooked it uncovered for 2 hours and it was the perfect consistency...not to soupy and not too dry... and to my surprise the top didn't burn either... I start checking mine at the 1 hour point and it was still soupy... then every 15 minutes after that.

Actually I had to re-heat it when I got to my sisters.... and it was fine! didn't dry it out.... Also it might taste BETTER being made the night befre...it will give a chance for the flavors to *gel*

Thanks...that's what I was thinking, too. That and the fact that I really just didn't want to have to get up THAT early on a Sunday.
