This is a recipe that comes close to duplicating the Cracker Barrel potato casserole. It is made from fresh potatoes. A short cut is to use 2-pounds of prepared, coarse grated frozen hash browns. The casserole preparation can be done the night before and placed in the oven in the morning for a wonderful breakfast side dish. However, don't limit this dish just to breakfast. As a main meal accompanyment is is excellent. Pictured here it is served with and compliments meatloaf and vegetables. Additional flavor is added with the chicken base. If you substitute chicken bouillon, reduce the salt added to the mix. Some copy-cat recipes call for Cheddar cheese but I think the Colby-Jack cheese mix gives a closer approximation to the Cracker Barrel product.
