Healthy Comfort Food - Hashbrown Casserole


One of my absolute favorite recipes of all time is this hashbrown casserole which just so happens to combine several of my favorite things, bacon, cheese, and potatoes. Yes, it's technically breakfast but we eat it for dinner over here.

You will need:

6 slices center cut bacon
2/3 of a package of frozen hashbrowns

1/4 cup white onion - diced
4oz fat free cream cheese
1/4 cup light sour cream
1/4 fat free chicken broth
1/4 green onion

1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
salt and pepper
1 cup 2% cheddar cheese - shredded
5 whole wheat ritz crackers
Preheat oven to 400.

In a skilllet cook bacon. Drain grease from pan and cook potatoes and onion on medium high heat until heated through.

Meanwhile mix the next 8 ingredients with crumbled bacon, reserving 1/2 of the cheddar cheese. Mix with potatoes and onions and spread into a greased baking dish. Top with remaing cheese and crushed crackers. Bake until cheese is bubbly.

Makes 6 servings at about 300 calories each.
