I make hashbrown casserole with sausage, ham, or chicken in it for my guys when I need something quick, cheap and filling.
1 large bag of frozen shredded hashbrowns
1 small onion chopped
1 large or 2 small cans of cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheese ( I actually use more because I like some on top)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix potatoes (I prefer to defrost potatoes in the microwave first, but you can mix them in frozen), onion, soup, sour cream and cheese in a large mixing bowl until well blended. At this point I add either sliced polska kielbasa, ham chunks, or chopped cooked chicken, whatever I have on hand. Spread in a 9x13 pan, and bake for 45-60 min. shorter if you defrost the potatoes.
Although the recipe doesn't call for it, I sprinkle extra cheese on top, and some seasoned bread crumbs.
My guys (18 &21) plus hubby, are always filled up, affordably, & l
