Ultra Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

This Ultra Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole was born from a mistake, but in the end it proved to be a good mistake!

I had been trying to cook through my pantry and freezer to sort of spring clean out the old, so I can bring in the new. One thing that was taking up space and constantly falling out on me when I opened the freezer, was a one pound bag of frozen hash brown potatoes, so I decided to make a hash brown casserole as a side dish for supper one evening.

Since I didn't want to make a full 9 x 13 inch pan just for us, and I only had the one pound of hash brown potatoes anyway, my original intent was to cut the casserole in half from the holiday recipe.

I went about putting everything together and then realized I had used some of the original measurements of ingredients, and not halved them, including the full two cups of the original amounts of cheese!

The result was a keeper. Rich, decadent, and just heavenly, and while you may not want to eat this side dish on a daily basis, it sure turned out mighty good and, in my opinion, worthy of the holidays and so, it's own spot here.

Go ahead and double it for the holidays. It'll be completely decadent and delightful.
