Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

Covering the hashbrowns with foil until the end helps to keep the moisture in

An easy way to transport dishes like this is to pick up a Pyrex 4 Piece Storage Set. What we love about this set is it comes with a snap on lid that makes it easy to store dishes in the fridge and it comes with a handy insulated carrying case that has handled, which make it easy to carry when you’re bringing food to a friend’s house. 

This cheesy hashbrown casserole is a delicious side dish that goes incredibly well with our maple bourbon glazed grilled ham, oven roasted chicken, or just about anything else.

If for some reason you end up with leftovers use the hashbrowns to make these sandwiches.
