Before you even start reading, this is NOT a skinny recipe. But oh so good and easy.
Shredded Potatoes au Gratin
4 cups (1 pound refrigerated shredded hash-brown potatoes
2 cups whipping cream (that is not a misprint)
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1/4 cup sliced green onions (about 4 medium)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (or use your House Seasoning)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray four 1-cup ramekins with nonstock cooking spray. You can also use one 11 x 7-inch baking dish and increase your cooking time by 12 minutes.
Combine the hash-browns, cream, 1 1/4 cups Cheddar, the onions, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix well.
Spoon the potatoe mixture into prepared ramkins. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake until bubbly and golden brown and the potatoes are cooked, 35-45 minutes.
