Here's another family holiday favorite... I use to make a huge roaster of cheesy potatoes every Christmas eve for my kids... We'd throw it together early in the day and shove it in the oven and forget about it while we were getting ready for our traditional Christmas eve festivities...   It's one of those meals where you can add it to your favorite meat and vegetables... or like we did... we made a batch of salmon dip for an appetizer and had cheesy potatoes for our meal... I know I have a picture here somewhere but for some reason I can't seem to find it... Here is the recipe, I'll post the pic as soon as I come up with it...

Cheesy Potato's

2 cans Cream of Potato (10 3/4oz cans each)
2 cans Cream of Cheddar Cheese (10 3/4oz cans each)
2 Cups (16oz) Sour Cream
3 cans Milk (10 3/4oz cans)
Cream together in a large roaster to a nice consistency
Then add:
4 Bags  of frozen Ore Ida southern style hash browns 32 oz each (126oz or 8 pounds)
Stir together
Cover with Tinfoil, bake at 375' for a couple hours, stirring every 40 minutes... Bake for 3 hours or until desired consistency... Let cool before serving... Always better the next day...
You can garnish with some shredded cheddar/Mozzarella mix, bake an additional 30 minutes or until golden...Enjoy
