It seems the rest of you are with me on one thing. Hash Brown Casseroles are to die for and that’s the truth. You all loved when I made a main dish out of this favorite casserole last time, so I decided it was high time that I made another one!
This time I took a fish spin on it! I topped it with fish sticks and added sweet relish to it for a delicious dinner recipe.
Do you remember meals of childhood that you always looked forward too, yet you think about it now and it was some of the simplest meals? It didn’t matter because you still loved them and I’m guessing mom was thinking WIN because she didn’t have to do much work!
I know if my kids eat recipes that are super simple I’m always doing a happy dance around the kitchen thinking that I scored the lottery that night!
Getting them to eat is hard enough, but when you get them to eat and it’s an easy recipe that is a cinch to make, that’s like a double win right there. I might as go buy a power ball ticket! Apparently this doesn’t happen very often because I don’t buy many power ball tickets!
I remember my Mom always making Gorton’s Fish Sticks, hash browns and green beans for dinner. It was one of the simple meals that the entire family ate and smiled about it. I’m surprised she didn’t feed it to us every single meal!
Since we loved it so much I decided to take it and put “my” spin on that meal. It turned out to be a casserole because casseroles always are amazing right? Oh, and I added some cheese. You can’t go wrong with adding cheese! I took my Mom’s Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole Recipe added a few more spices, peas and topped it with Gorton’s Fish Stick for an amazing meal that the whole family, from young to old, will love! Plus, most of the ingredients are probably already in your house!
