THAW HASH BROWNS BEFORE MAKING
If you are using frozen hash brown potatoes in your cheesy potato casserole, you can put the thaw the package of frozen hash browns in the refrigerator overnight. Or, you can empty the hash browns into a bowl or strainer, cover, and let stand at room temperature for about 30 to 40 minutes. Drain off any excess liquid before using the thawed hash browns in your recipe.
HOW TO REHEAT CHEESY POTATOES
We usually don’t have very many leftovers when we make these cheesy potatoes. But if you do, you can easily reheat them and eat them as leftovers or as a midnight snack!
Reheating on the stove or in the oven is the best way to get your leftovers warm without making them soggy. Cover your potatoes with a layer of foil or an oven-safe lid. Preheat your oven to 350 F, and place the dish on the middle rack. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are warmed all the way through.
