It is Labor Day weekend. Kids are home. Football season starts and it is time to put away the white shoes. White pants and jeans too. Last weekend to go to the pool and time to gather family and friends for the last summer gathering.
Grandpa’s Hash Brown Casserole is the perfect side for this farewell to summer weekend gatherings. A hot side dish for picnics and BBQ’s.
It’ one of our family tired and true dishes that everyone likes. The kids took this recipe with them in Mom’s handwritten cookbook. If Rob couldn’t find it, he would call.
It’s one of those workhorse sides. Double and freeze the extra. Travels well and holds the heat. Heats up well if there are any leftovers. Delicious well liked side dish.
We call it after my daddy, Grandpa, who was made sure it was made just right without any shortcuts! Delicious with both breakfast and grilled meals.
