To begin making this Hash Brown Casserole I set out 8 cups of hash browns to thaw.

Then I poured some almond milk into a medium size sauce pan on medium heat.

I measured in some onion powder, paprika, pepper and salt.

After whisking the ingredients together I made a paste with some more almond milk and some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour.

I whisked the paste into the milk in the sauce pan.

While continuing to whisk the sauce at intervals, I grated the marble cheddar cheese. 

I allowed the sauce to thicken and just begin to boil before removing the pan from the heat.

Once the sauce was ready I greased a 9″ x 13″ baking pan.

Then I spread the thawed hash browns out evenly in the baking pan.

Next I sprinkled about half of the shredded cheese over the hash browns.

After adding the grated cheese I poured all of the cream sauce over the hash browns.

Then I placed the baking pan in the oven for 15 minutes.

I removed the pan after 15 minutes and stirred up the hash browns.  I returned the pan to the oven for another 15 minutes.

After the second 15 minutes, I removed the baking pan again and sprinkled the remaining grated cheddar cheese evenly on the top.

I returned the pan to the oven again for another 5 minutes. Until the cheese had melted.  You can cook longer to get the melted cheese to your liking.

This simple recipe is loaded with flavour and quick enough to prepare for a week night meal.

Whether you choose to make it dairy reduced or substitute regular milk this side dish recipe is sure to become a staple in your home.

Hash Brown Casserole is the perfect side dish to satisfy the appetites of young and old alike!
