Crispy Shredded Potato Gratin

Ok, you got me. Of COURSE this is a version of the ever-popular hash brown casserole, but doesn't this name sound so much better? (Thanks, Katie!) This is a perfect brunch dish! You can also assemble this the night before and just pop in the oven to bake while you are getting everything else together.

I got the recipe for this particular version from my fabulous Aunt Jane. I would trust anything coming out of her kitchen because she is such a great cook, and this certainly delivers! It has all the comforting tastes of cheese, potatoes, and creamy soup. Make some for your family today!

Mmm - it reminds me of Cracker Barrel's hashbrown casserole. It looks like a great addition to any breakfast/brunch table!
