Some time ago, Tachoblog used to bring you some healthy eating recipes thanks to Don from Roadcookin – in fact that reminds us, we must get in touch with him again. Anyway, following some Tweets Tachoblog had with TheNose100 from the Tachoblog Tribe, he’s sent us his recipe for Hash Brown Casserole (Vegetarian Version).
TheNose100 says, “This recipe ought to meet or beat your expectations of what Cracker Barrel serves. [Tachoblog believes that Cracker Barrel is a chain of restaurants in America]
“There are other variations of this on line, that call for two pounds of Hash Browns, and they call for Cream of Chicken Soup.
“I was raised a few years of my life as a Vegetarian, and have no problems with a meal that it meatless. But in my humble opinion, a nice ham steak with some biscuits and veggies would round this meal out nicely.”
Ok, so it might not be ‘healthy’ eating but it does sound rather good. If you do try this at home, then please send Tachoblog a picture of how it came out.
Now click below for the recipe…
Hash Brown Casserole (Vegetarian Version).
1 lbs Frozen Hash Browns
1/4 cup Butter, melted maybe a little less.
1 (10 1/4 ounce) can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 pint French Onion Dip.
1 Medium Onion, peeled and chopped
2 cups Grated Cheese, Colby Jack Mix Mostly for mixing into the dish. I like to top it with some Cheddar. The Grated 8 oz packages of cheese are two cups, FWIW.
A few good Dash’s of Salt and Pepper
1.Preheat oven to 350°F and use your favorite treatment to grease an 11 x 14 baking dish with something to make it easier to get crusty stuff off of the pan. I like Butter, myself.
2. I like to melt the butter in the dish on the stove, that covers the greasing of the pan job. Then add the chopped onion, Can of Soup, and French Onion Dip. Then mix in the Hash Browns, and cheese. Save some of the cheese to top the dish the last 10 or 15 mins prior to being done. OR, use some extra Cheddar Cheese. I think that the more cheese there is the better.
3. Mix the above ingredients together, place in prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes or until brown on top.
As a final helpful (?) hint, TheNose100 says that ‘you can’t put to much cheese on anything’.
