Deluxe Hash Brown Casserole

    We love potato casseroles but did not care for the flavor of this. The sour cream onion dip and ranch dressing mix seem an odd combination. I will make it again but use plain sour cream.

    Made this for a church potluck and it was one of the first dishes finished. I added more cheese and crumbled bacon to the top during the last 10 minutes of baking. Definitely a keeper.
