*2 teaspoons garlic powder
*2 teaspoons black pepper
*3 teaspoons salt

~Spray roaster with a cooking spray.

~Add cheese & mix well.
~Stir in hash browns until well coated.
~Turn roaster onto 275 degrees.
~Bake for 3-4 hours, stirring every so often.

Hi - I want to do this recipe but I will need to make it at 1.5 times the recipe, so for 90 people. Do you think it will still fit in the 18 at roaster?

Barb Brinker said...

Yes I do. It may be very full at first, but it will cook down some.

How long would you cook this for if you double the recipe?

Sonya said...

How large is the roaster?

Diane said...

What to make this but only 4 servings, how do I break it down

If I make this for 90 people in one roaster, will it change the cooking time?

Carrie said...

Also, could I assemble the night before and refrigerate and cook the next morning with the same cook times?

This recipe worked great! I adjusted it to serve 450. Some suggestions would be to double the amount of cheese called for. Do not fill each roaster for 90 people as discussed in comments above. It made a huge mess and took longer to cook...we eneded up getting out more roasters to separate how much was in each roaster. They cooked better after doing that. We had our roasters set on 325 the entire time, not 275. And I suggest thawing out the potatoes ahead of time. We did that and still barely got ours cooked in 4 hours. I feel that if we hadn't thawed out the potatoes they would have taken twice as long. Lastly, we had three full roasters left over. And we served over 450 people very generous portions. So I feel that maybe the portions figured for this recipe was a little off. Over all, though I loved the way they turned out and we had many compliments! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

I really like this recipe. Was wondering if I could make these the day before the graduation party and just warm them the day of the party?

if having 100 people with other sides would 60 servings be enough or do I need to make more?

If I sub fresh potatoes for the frozen hash browns, how many pounds would you suggest I need? Would it be 12 lbs, same as the amount of hash browns? Anyone tried it with fresh (diced) potatoes?

I want to use dried hash browns instead of frozen. Will this work? How do I adjust measurements & cooking time?

Do you cover it?
