Quick and Easy Side Dish

Hello chefs! I’ll be adding simple, delicious, comfort-food dishes to my blog. These are tried and true recipes that I make often! Enjoy some of the ethnic recipes, as I’ll have some traditional Polish and Hungarian dishes. This first recipe is my “go to” side dish for everything.

Once you try it, you’ll find yourself making it often. You can make this in a casserole or in a crock pot. If you use a crock pot, plan to let it cook for at least 3 hours. The longer you cook this recipe, the creamier the hash browns become. This is a favorite for everyone!
