1- 2 Lb package Frozen Hash Browns thawed
1/2 Cup chopped onion
1/2 Cup Butter or margarine melted
1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
2 Cups Sour Cream
2 Cups shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt and pepper to taste or any other seasoning you like.
1/4 cup melted margarine
2 Cups crushed Cornflakes or cracker crumbs or stove top stuffing- just grind in the blender or processor.
Mix well to coat crumbs with butter.
Saute onion in 1/2 cup butter until tender. Combine sour cream and soup mix. Stir in the hash browns, cheese and seasoning.
Pour into a greased 9" X 13" baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for a half hour.
Meanwhile melt 1/4 Cup butter and toss with cracker crumbs. Remove dish from from oven and sprinkle topping over it. Return to oven for another 1/2 hour.
NOTE I have seen similar recipes with 2 cans of soup and one cup sour cream. The first time I made this I used one can of soup and 1 Cup sour cream and sauteed the onion in 1/4 Cup butter.
