Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

cheesy hashbrown casserole

Potatoes. Potatoes. Potatoes. I’ll have them anyway I can get them. Yes! I love them just that much. Only problem is they love me just that much too. A straight  killer to the hips and thighs. But what can I say, “Country Cookin’ Makes Ya Good Lookin'”. Yes Ma’am! So my question to you is: Are you looking for something downright sinful? Something comforting?  Something that make you close your eyes and picture home? Well look no further cause this is it. Perfect for any breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner table.

Psssst, Did I mention that it rivals the well known version @ Cracker Barrel. Well that’s what I heard but hey you haven’t heard that from me. LOL 🙂
