It also makes a great addition to a brunch buffet!
You can assemble this hashbrown potato recipe up to a day in advance and refrigerate it.
I think it tastes best right out of the oven, but it also makes terrific leftovers.
Although you could use pre-shredded cheese - don't! The anti-caking agent they add to pre-shredded cheese dries the cheese out a bit and so it doesn't melt as well- and this casserole is all about that melted cheese!
Also, use full-fat sour cream. Low fat sour cream gives the potatoes a gritty taste which is definitely not what you want!
The recipe doubles or triples perfectly so it's great for serving a crowd!
