Someone mentioned they would like this recipe in the "Last Meal" thread. Here's how Grandma, Mom & I make it - I know there's many variations, but we've stuck by this one:
2 1-lb. bag frozen hash browns, thawed
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pint sour cream (can use low-fat, but not non-fat)
2 c. shredded medium or sharp cheddar cheese
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 stick butter, melted
couple good shakes Tabasco
garlic salt/pepper to taste
2 c. cornflakes, lightly crushed
1/4 c. melted butter
Combine all ingredients except cornflakes and 1/4 c. of melted butter in large bowl. Put in 9X14 pan; if it is too much for pan, you can put extra in a pie tin or muffin cups and bake.
Mix cornflakes and butter in medium bowl. Sprinkle over top of casserole. Bake 1 hour at 350, or until browned on top and bubbling. Let cool slightly before serving. It is like lava!
