Hash Brown Casserole
1 large pkg frozen Whole Grain hashed potatoes (haha! just kidding-like there are whole grain ones....seriously, you fell for that?! just messing with you-it's healthiER, but don't be crazy!)
1 can reduced-fat, reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup (you can sub in cr. of mushroom, too)
1 C. reduced-fat sour cream (not fat-free or the creaminess turns to jelly-ness. ew.)
1/2 C. finely chopped onion
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 C. shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (if this is too "fake" for you, do part reg. cheddar)
1/4 C. melted fake butter of your choice
1 1/2 C. crushed reduced-fat Ritz-y type crackers
Mix together all ingredients EXCEPT melted faux butterish stuff and cracker crumbs. Put in a 2-quartish casserole dish sprayed w/ nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with cracker crumbs and drizzle melted butterish stuff over the top. Bake at 350 for 35-45 min. until bubbly. Get on some sweatpants, grab a large plate and fork, and choose your knitting project and TV selection ready while it is baking. Remove from oven, get to the couch, and snuggle in with the delectable, creamy, comforting goodness that can only be produced from the proper marriage of potatoes and cheese. Enjoy!
PS-Didn't even miss the lack of knitting did ya'??
