Hashbrown Casserole

This yummy casserole is great for church pot-lucks or large family gatherings. It’s even earned a permanent spot on our Christmas morning menu. I get everything mixed up and ready to go on Christmas Eve and pop it in the oven the next morning right before we start opening presents. It’s an excellent way to […]
