This is so good it would make a tadpole slap a whale!

This morning is our monthly  life coaching meeting at Celebration Church.  We've gotten in the habit of eating brunch at these meetings, and the natural and spiritual food is just wonderful.  Today God has given me a very powerful word for them, and I know we're going to have an amazing time.  I can just feel the "next level" coming on!!! 

My food contribution for this morning's meeting is hash brown potato casserole.  If you've never tried this, oh MY, you need to.  It's UH-May-Zing!!! 

Hash Brown Potato Casserole

1 (32 oz.) package of frozen hash brown potatoes
1/2 cup of butter  (1 stick)
8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup of onions, chopped
1 pint of sour cream
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt (or I use fresh garlic)
1 cup of corn flakes
1/4 cup of melted butter
Partially defrost hash browns. Mix potatoes, 1/2 cup margarine, cheese, onions, sour cream, soup, and spices. Put into greased 9 x 13 dish. Sprinkle corn flakes over the potatoes. Pour the 1/4 cup of margarine over corn flakes. Bake uncovered in 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

*Yes, I know it's not exactly calorie friendly, but it's so good, at least for "occasions.This is one of our traditional dishes for Christmas dinner.   My family LOVES it, especially my father in law.  I always make this dish, along with other casseroles.  On holidays, I have a tradition of making Larry's and each one of our children's favorite vegetables or vegetable casseroles. So, we end up with quite a smorgasbord on our table, with four different vegetable casseroles!  If you make this dish for a covered dish dinner party or potluck, you are guaranteed to come home with only your empty dish.
