Cheesy Hash Browns 
Adapted from one of the Disney Cookbooks
1 two pound Bag Frozen Shredded Hash Browns
1/4 c. Red Onion
1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 c. Fat Free Half & Half
1 c. Reduced Fat Sour Cream
1/2 c. Asiago Cheese, shredded  (or Jack or Swiss)
1 1/2 c. Reduced Fat Cheddar Jack Cheese, shredded
1 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp. Fresh Ground Black Pepper

In a small sauté pan, heat oil and cook onions until they become translucent. In a bowl, mix together the hash browns, cooked onions, half & half, sour cream, Asiago cheese, 1 cup of the Cheddar Jack cheese, salt and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well blended, then place in a 9" x 13" oven safe baking dish and sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of Cheddar Jack cheese on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Serves 9.

  1. Well, now, you know I'm a big fan of hash browns! This casserole looks delicious--I'd have to forgo the onions an cheese, though. Isn't that sad? When you take that away, you really just have plain old potatoes.

    I used to make this kind of dish, though, before I discovered all my limitations, and I felt like I could eat the entire casserole dish all by myself, I loved it so much!
