Hashbrown Casserole Tips
A simple way to keep the hashbrowns from drying out in the oven is to cover them in foil until right before the end of their cooking time. Then take off the foil to let the cheese brown on top.
An easy way to transport dishes like this is to pick up a Pyrex 4 Piece Storage Set. What we love about this set is it comes with a snap-on lid that makes it easy to store dishes in the fridge and it comes with a handy insulated carrying case that has handled, which makes it easy to carry when you’re bringing food to a friend’s house.
If for some reason you end up with leftovers use the hashbrowns to make these sandwiches.
