1 bag (2 lbs) frozen hash browns, southern style
1/2 c. melted butter or margarine
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1-2 Tbsp dried minced onions
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Pour hash browns in a 9x13 inch pan. Mix remaining ingredients together, then pour mixture over the potatoes and mix together. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees, covered, for 30 minutes then remove foil and continue baking for another 30 minutes.
*the original recipe didn't say to cover the potatoes and of course, as it was cooking I decided to check my email. As you can see, I let the cheese get a little too brown on top. I think it would be better to cover the potatoes for a bit, so I added that into the instructions.
