For the last 6 or 7 years we have been going over to our friend Nancy's Farm for a New Year's Day party. Always good food, good music and this year it was more of the same. The musicians generally end up splitting into two groups - one in the "great room" - the old rock and rollers - and the folk/Balkan music people in the living room - This year I was in the great room with the old rock & rollers - Pretty good for a bunch of guys who only play together once a year.
Nancy cooked up a big Costco Ham (it was yummy~) and I made "Auntie Magga's Potatoes" I forgot to take a picture, but take my word for it - these are the best scalloped potatoes you'll ever eat!
(My friend's family renamed this "Auntie Magga's Potatoes because she always brought them to potlucks - they are really delish!)
2 lbs. hash brown potato cubes
1/2 t. salt
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. finely chopped onions
2-3 cans cream of chicken soup or you could use part cream of mushroom too)
1 c. sour cream
Mix all together and place into 9" x 13" pan. Bake @ 350 degrees for approx. 45 minutes.
Topping if desired:
2 c. crushed corn flakes or potato chips
1/4 c. melted butter
Place under broiler until golden brown.
