Third Thursday Thoughts: Cheesy Potatoes for the Holidays!

Welcome to another edition of Third Thursday Thoughts, brought to you by the wonderful people at Hearts at Home! Every third Thursday of the month, we share our thoughts on the topic of the month. This month, we were asked to share a favorite fall recipe or tradition.

When I was growing up, our family always spent Thanksgiving with my Aunt Billie, Uncle Richard, and their three daughters. None of us are actually related, but my parents met Richard and Billie before they even had children, and they were closer to them than they were to their own families! Aunt Billie always made this delicious potato recipe, and she passed it on to my mother, who passed it along to me. Now we make it at our house for every Thanksgiving and holiday dinner. Enjoy!

Cheesy Potatoes

Serves: 12

2 pounds frozen hash brown potatoes
1 stick margarine softened
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pint sour cream (or 2 cups)
1 (8-ounce) package Cheddar cheese shredded
2 cups potato chips crushed

Mix soup, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and margarine until well blended (may use hand mixer or blender). Pour over potatoes in 9x13-inch baking dish. Mix until potatoes are well coated. Top with crushed potato chips. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
