Hash Brown Casserole (lighter version)

Submitted by: BEGI929

Introduction

This recipe is always a hit at any gathering. You will always bring home an empty pan! I have "lightened" the original recipe by using less margarine and a light sour cream. You could also use reduced fat cream of mushroom soup to decrease the fat even more. This recipe is always a hit at any gathering. You will always bring home an empty pan!

  • This recipe is great- I tried it for a potluck and every single bite was eaten. I was hesitant about putting the cream of mushroom in it but it worked! Oh I also sauteed the onions so they'd be softer :) - 7/17/09
