  • 13 x 9 inch pan


  • 2 16 oz bags of frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
  • 2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cup sour cream

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme (optional)
  • 3/4 cup french fried onions (optional for a topping)
  • 1/2 cup chopped bacon (optional for a mix in or a topping)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
  • In a large bowl mix shredded potatoes with half of the cheese
  • In another large bowl whisk eggs, add milk, sour cream and butter until well mixed. Add parsley, thyme, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  • Add potato/cheese mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix well. Spoon into baking dish.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of the potatoes. I like add french fried onions.
