1 Hr

Ingredients

1 pt
half and half
26 oz
frozen hash browns
8 oz
cheddar cheese, shredded (i prefer the sharp)
2/3 pkg
velveeta, cubed

pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

In sauce pan combine half and half, cheeses, and butter.
2
Cook over low heat until cheese is melted, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
