This Cheesy Potato Bake makes a great potluck dish or side for brunch. It’s super easy to mix together and throw in the oven, and you can even assemble it a day ahead and bake just before serving. You can use any brand of shredded hash browns, or make it with fresh potatoes that you peel, boil and dice beforehand. Cream of bacon soup is readily available, even if you’ve never heard of it.

  • 1(30-oz.) pkg. frozen country-style shredded hash browns, thawed and patted dry
