1 pt
half and half
26 oz
frozen hash browns
8 oz
cheddar cheese, shredded (i prefer the sharp)
2/3 pkg
velveeta, cubed
2 stick
butter or margarine (potatoes aren't as greasy with the butter, but the sauce sticks more)
garlic salt, to taste (i've been using fresh minced since i started making these)
pepper, to taste


1In sauce pan combine half and half, cheeses, and butter.
2Cook over low heat until cheese is melted, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

6Arrange has browns evenly in pan.
7Pour cheese over and stir.
8Bake uncovered for 1 hour at 35o degrees or until top is slightly browned.
