Wedding Potatoes

Forgive me for the lack of posts, I have a terrible cold and have not done much cooking.  I figured even though I am not making some of these dishes, that I could still post them and then come back and post the pictures later on when I actually make them.  I've made them all before, just  not this week.  This is a great recipe to use for that Easter ham, it works great with any meat as a side dish.
This is a recipe I got from my SIL that just passed away from breast cancer.  What a wonderful woman she was.  My daughter has a lot of her aunt in her.  A strong, independent woman who can do anything, yet has a heart of gold that is so caring and giving towards others.  I watched my SIL grow in her faith in God over the last several years and she was such an inspiration to me and so many others, it was truly a blessing to watch how God used her for His work and His glory...she was a good and faithful servant and now she is dancing with the angels and in no more pain. We love you Kim!
We went to visit her and her husband several years ago and she served salmon and these wonderful wedding potatoes...I had to have the recipe that night! There are many versions of this recipe, but this is my favorite and I have adjusted it just a bit over the years.  It isn't the healthiest, but just serve it with salmon or some other food that is healthy and it will make you feel better!
Wedding Potatoes-recipe from my SIL
#2bag of frozen hashbrowns, shredded
2C shredded cheddar cheese
2C sour cream, use light, I only use 1C. and it works fine
1pkg onion soup mix
1can cream of chicken soup(I use cream of mushroom)
1stick of butter, melted(I use more like 1/2stick and it works)
1/2t each salt and pepper
Mix all ingredients together and put in a greased 13x9pan.  Bake at 350 for 45-60min.  I like my potatoes crispier, so I use a 15x10x1 pan and they spread out more and bake to the texture I like.
