Smoky Ham and Cheddar Hash Brown Casserole

The only way smoky ham and cheddar hash brown casserole could be more comforting is if you eat it while wrapped in a cozy wool blanket, sitting on the floor in front of flickering flames of a glowing fireplace.

You may have eaten something slightly similar in a country restaurant off the interstate, but when you take your first bite of this creamy, smoky, and cheesy dish, you’ll taste that there’s hardly a resemblance.

You can prepare this dish, without baking it, and store it in the freezer until ready to bake. Just don’t put the corn flakes or butter on top until you are ready to bake it or they will get soggy.

Sweet wishes,
