THANKful: Day 6

Manic Mother

Hands down, my favorite Thanksgiving dish is the chicken and dressing. But I never have made them (in fact, my mom often makes me 9x9 dishes to freeze throughout the year) so I'd feel a little weird sharing the recipe.

Instead, I'll share a staple I make for most every holiday, especially hubby's family. We LOVE this low-calorie dish.

Cheesy hashbrown casserole (imiage via Google)

What you'll need:
2 bags of hashbrowns
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can cream of chicken
8 oz. sour cream
1/2 stick butter
Shredded cheddar cheese

To make:
  • Dump your hashbrowns (preferably thawed overnight, so your hands don't freeze!) into the baking dish or a bowl, if you don't want things to get too messy!
  • Mix in soups and sour cream. I find it's easier to just mix with clean hands! Also, if you don't like one of the creams/don't have them on hand, you can do both the same, just use two cream soups.
  • Pour into 9x13.
  • Melt butter and pour on top.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes or so.
  • Once the hour has passed, mix in shredded cheese. I usually do about 1.5 cups, but it all depends on how cheesy you like it! I also sprinkle a layer on top.
  • Return to oven for about 15 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Enjoy! This stuff is so good, I can just sit down with a plate of it as leftovers and be completely satisfied!
