Recipe Comments & Reviews

My husband and myself really enjoyed this casserole. Really doesn't need quite this much cheese for our taste and diet.
We used real potatoes that we grated and squeezed out all the water. Everyone loved it!
I made this for company and everyone loved it! We had leftovers from grilling out the previous evening, so instead of cooking up the bulk sausage I just cut up the leftover Italian sausage and added in! Delish and I'll make this again. The hash browns were nice and crispy and not soggy.
Very good and I will definitely make it again!
I really wanted to make this but due to what I had on hand I made a few changes; I used the thicker "southern" style hash browns, bacon instead of sausage, and american cheese in the crust but Monterey Jack and Cheddar on the top. It was delicious! My family even ate all the leftovers.
Everyone at work loves this!
I made the recipe for a mother's day brunch. It was a big hit. Everyone went back for seconds.
tastes great
