Our weather has been incredibly and ridiculously cold the past week or so (although it seems like months!).
The bone-chilling temperatures just make me crave comfort-type food. Something warm and filling.
The other day, in a panic to come up with something edible for dinner before Captain Cavedweller arrived home, tired and hungry, I whipped up a hash brown casserole. Super easy, it proved to be quite tasty.
Hash Brown Casserole
2 lbs frozen shredded hash browns
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 cup of sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar (or colby-jack cheese) grated
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. all-purpose seasoning (like Mrs. Dash)
1 tsp. parsley
1 sleeve of Saltine crackers, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350°F and spray an 11 x 14 baking dish with cooking spray.
Melt butter then crumbled crackers into it, stirring until well coated. Set aside.
Mix the remaining ingredients together, place in prepared pan, and top with 1/2 cup additional cheese, if desired. Top with the cracker crumbs and bake for an hour.
Remove and indulge in the deliciousness!
She Who Should Not Make This Again, but It Was So Yummy
