I don't know about y'all – but this was “survival mode” week for food at our house.
I wasn't planning on cooking at all…but, when I was cleaning out the fridge Monday, I had sour cream, potatoes, eggs, and bacon to use up. So we had breakfast for dinner…not my favorite, but Noah loves it, so I like to do it every once in awhile!
This was one of the things we had – it's actually an invention out of necessity (read: need to use this stuff in my fridge up).
White Hash Brown Casserole
1 bag (32oz) of frozen Hash Browns, or 8 Medium Potatoes, grated
1/2 pack (8oz) Bacon
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
1 container (16oz) Sour Cream
2 packs Ranch Dressing Mix
3 Green Onions, chopped
1 tbsp Minced Garlic
Brown the bacon in a little bit of oil – drain on a paper towel, and crumble. Set aside.
In the same pan you browned the bacon, cook the green onions and garlic together for about 30 seconds, just enough to take the crunch off. Be careful – these both burn easily!
Mix together the potatoes, crumbled bacon, cheese, sour cream, dressing mix, and onion/garlic mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes, until the sides and top start to brown.
