Do you ever get the main course figured out for dinner and feel so accomplished, but then are completely lost for a side dish and end up just piling cooked broccoli on the plate? Me too. But sometimes my mommy brain remembers this simple, super flavorful, and homey side. Perfect for a BBQ (recipe for pictured pulled BBQ pork coming soon), or as an accouterment to any family dinner.
These cheesy potatoes come from my older sister (I made small changes to the recipe). It reminds of our large family get-togethers on sunny summer evenings, or cold winter weekends. Just like those dinners with your family are soothing for busy lives, this dish is comforting and so yummy. Cheesy hash browns with a nice crunch on top makes for a perfect side to any meal.
