This is an accidental recipe. I accidentally doubled the sour cream and cheese on a hectic holiday and everyone LOVED it! Leave it to a "fat gal" to double the "goody" of the recipe! If I don't make it this way, the family says...what did you do to it this time?? LOL

How to Make Fat Gal Hashbrown Potato Casserole


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix the first 8 ingredients together. (I thaw the hashbrowns at room temp., in a collander to remove excess liquid and make blending easier...it's not necessary). Pour into a prepared (pam or butter) 3 qt. casserole dish.
  3. Choose which topping to use and mix with the butter. Pour over the casserole.
  4. Cover casserole with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove foil and bake an additional 15 mins., to brown topping. Let stand at room temp. for 10 mins. to set some and serve.
  5. **I often use light or fat-free sour cream.
    **I also cut back on the butter in the topping if it appears too "greasy"
