Tasty Tuesday . . . Cheesy Potatoes

My mother-in-law makes these potatoes for us. We love them. My husband keeps asking me to make them. They are so rich and yummy.

2 lbs. frozen hash browns (she uses the shredded ones)
16 oz. French Onion dip or sour cream
1 stick margarine (or butter), melted
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 c. shredded cheese
Crushed potato chips

Place frozen hash brown in large bowl. Combine soup, dip, and melted butter; pour over hash browns and mix well. Add cheese and fold together. Pour into a casserole dish and bake at 340 for an hour or until center bubbles. Sprinkle potato chips over top and bake 5 minutes more.

Mom's note (from my mother-in-law) - This is an extremely forgiving recipe. When I'm feeling lazy I just cut the margarine in chunks and don't melt it. You can also use any type of cream soup if you don't have cream of chicken.

Healthier note - my grandmother-in-law also makes this. She uses plain non-fat yogurt instead of sour cream and she also makes her own cream of soup to be a bit healthier. She also uses corn flakes smashed up instead of the potato chips.

YUM! This has been a family staple for as long as I can remember. My grandmother uses the corn flakes and instead of corn flakes, I sprinkle bread crumbs on top before baking.
