  3. I love ‘Schwarties hashbrowns. They are the best with ham.
    The Best of Bridge cook books have been my favorite recipes for as long as they have been around. Is it 50 years yet?
    Thank you to all you lovely ladies. Also enjoy your husbands input.

  4. Making this dish for the first time, although I’ve enjoyed it on many occasions – made by others. It’s always a hit.

    Best of Bridge recipes are my go-to’s and have been for 30+ years. A BIG HUGE thank you to all you lovely ladies for all the creativity and love you’ve put into all your recipes. It seems like you’re part of the family – your Land of Nod Cinnamon Buns are center stage Christmas mornings every year as well. 🙂

    • If you haven’t already baked it, it can be thawed overnight in the refrigerator and then baked as directed. If you’ve baked it already, thaw it in the fridge overnight and then reheat in a 350F oven for 30 minutes (or until heated through). Enjoy!

    • Hi Penny, you can mix the ingredients in a 6-qt slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 – 8 hours and give it a good stir at the end as the oil will have separated during cooking. Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!

    • Hi Eric, that’s a great question. Yes, you can prepare the casserole the night before and bake the next day. You might want to take a peek at the casserole at the 45 minute point, as the casserole will take a little less time to bake. All ovens have variations. Enjoy!

  5. I have had this numerous times in Calgary but want to make it here in Ontario, but it is definitely too much for 2 people (unless you want to eat it for the next 5 days).
    I want to know if the recipe is scalable, ie can I reduce all ingredients by half (and use an 8×8 pan instead of 9×13 pan)?

    • Hi Doug, yes, you can half the recipe with great results. Keep an eye on the casserole, you might want to reduce the baking time as it will cook through faster. Enjoy!

      • Hello. I am just wondering if I can use cream of broccoli soup instead of mushroom….or one of each. Got a mushroom aversive adult child (hehe)
