        • 1 cup sour cream (I use light sour cream)
        • 2 cups sharp cheddar , shredded
        • 1 30-ounce bag Frozen Ore-Ida Hash Brown Potatoes , thawed
        • 2 tablespoons butter , melted
        • 2 cups Panko bread crumbs


        • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
        • On top of the stove, in a large sauce pan over medium low heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter.
        • Add chopped onions and cook until they are soft, about 5 minutes.
        • Stir in 1/4 cup flour and continue stirring for about 1 minutes until you have a paste.
        • Pour in 1-1/2 cups chicken broth. Add in salt, pepper, ranch seasoning, worcestershire, and hot sauce. Continue stirring.
        • Stir in milk and continue stirring. Let it simmer for about 5 - 7 minutes until slightly thickened.
        • Remove from heat and add sour cream and cheese and stir until smooth.
        • Add chopped bacon and fold in the Ore-Ida hash brown potatoes. Stir until all ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
        • Spoon the potato mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
        • Sprinkle the bread crumbs evenly over the top of the casserole. Drizzle melted butter over the top of the bread crumbs.
        • Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.
        • Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes. Garnish with chopped bacon and green onions, if desired.
