Cooking Louisiana  -  Party Potato Casserole
An Old Family Classic

A staple at my wife's grandmothers for years, every time we had baked ham, it was a "side". It goes great with baked ham and is sooo good, I can make it go with anything. I eat it the next morning with eggs. Not sure if you can still get 16 oz pkg. of Hash browns, but try to get two small bags of frozen chunk hash browns, equaling 32 oz. or so. This is an excellent dish, one I was married in to, but love, almost as much as my wife, even though we have been married a while.
