Roadside Potatoes
Vegetables & Side Dishes

3 cups half and half
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1  32-ounce package hash browns (if frozen, thaw first)
2-3 cups grated cheese - Monterey Jack, Colby

Heat half and half with butter in microwave or in saucepan on stove until butter melts.  Add salt and stir slightly.  Place thawed potatoes in a 9"x13" roasting pan (or you can do this in a crockpot).  Pour cream mixture over the potatoes and spread the cheese on top.  (You can make layers with this if you choose.)  Bake at 325 for one to 1-1/2 hours.  (When I use a crockpot, I make a double batch.  Then I set the crockpot on high heat for the first hour and turn to low for another 4 hours.)
