Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole w/Cornflake Topping

Diane Atherton


This hearty hashbrown casserole is a perfect side for a hungry family gathering.

My niece shared this recipe with me several years ago. This has been a favorite dish at many of our family gatherings.

I was surprised and and tastebuds were pleased the 1st time I sampled this dish and was told the topping was made with cornflakes.

Hope you enjoy!
