Southern Hashbrowns With Cheddar Beer Sauce

Tammy Brownlow


This is a nice potato side dish that is different than a cream soup. I crisp up the hash browns with some onion and peppers then add a creamy cheese sauce. Then I bake it a few minutes to melt additional cheese.

This would be great with crisp bacon pieces, or ham too!


Great with that steak and asparagus I'll be grilling later.
