Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole Recipe

Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole comes straight from the 100 Days of Real Food book. It is a mixture of two of my favorite things…. potatoes and cheddar cheese! This is super-simple to make, especially if you use frozen hashbrowns. And trust me, buy the frozen. I tried with homemade hash browns one time and it just didn’t work very well. I have this listed under breakfast, but we often make it for dinner as well!
