Back in the day when I was not to suppose to eat at the Cracker Barrel because of their stupid discriminatory practices towards gay and lesbian employees, I would still go...but I would sit silently in protest while eating their food. My favorite side dish at Cracker Barrel is their cheesy potatoey casseroley thing. I'd sometimes order two servings of it. And for the longest time, I've been trying to figure out how to make it. This morning...I got it!
For 6-10 people
2 lbs of frozen hashbrown potatoes (the shredded hashbrowns, not the patty, formed kind)
1 medium onion, finely diced or shredded
1/2 cup butter, cubed, reserve about a 1/4 of this butter for the top
2 cup of sour cream
1 can of Cream of soup, I used cream of Chicken
10 oz, shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
Schlup it all together in a large bowl and dumped into a buttered baking pan, 13x9. Drop a few small bits of butter on top. Bake for 40-50 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Will be really hot and bubbly and starting to brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes before eating. Yum-o!
