Here's nother variation of the hash brown potatoes, which I just made today.
You could put them in the oven, but it was hot, so I cooked them in my crock pot two hours on high. I'm not a stickler on measurements...I usually "throw" things together.
I had about 3/4 of a package of hash browns. Cut up a little diced onion, mixed in a can of cr. of mushroom soup, about a half a cup of milk, salt, pepper, & garlic powder, about 4-6 ounces of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, and a couple large spoons of french onion chip dip. (The chip dip makes it so good.) I had about 12 ounces of Eckrich skinless kielbasi that I cut up into slices and mixed in. During the last 15 minutes of cooking, I threw in a handful of frozen corn.
It is creamy and delicious.
