2 lbs. southern style frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. butter, melted (optional)
1-2 c. cubed, cooked ham
1/3 c. chopped onion (optional)
2 c. crushed corn flakes
1/4 c. butter, melted
Combine all casserole ingredients and mix well. Place in 13"x9"x2" baking dish. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle on casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour*.
*I used fresh, grated potatoes and had to cook them for a lot longer than 1 hour, so I'm not sure how hash browns will cook.
