  • 1 bag Ore-Ida Southern-style hash brown potatoes (32 ounces)
  • 2 cups ham, chopped
  • 1 cup onion, chopped (I use frozen chopped onions from the store)
  • 2 packages Sargento shredded Swiss cheese (5 ounces), divided
  • 1 jar sliced mushrooms (4.5 ounces), drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup (10 3/4 ounces)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 3-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

    In a large bowl, combine potatoes, ham, onion, 1 package cheese, mushrooms, salt, and pepper.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together soup, milk, and butter. Pour soup mixture over potato mixture, stirring to combine. Pour into prepared dish and top with remaining package of cheese. Bake for 35 minutes. Increase oven temperature to broil and cook for 5 minutes longer, or until cheese is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
