This variation on Hashbrown Casserole includes peppers, bacon, extra sour cream and french fried onions on top. It may not win any nutrition awards, but I guarantee if you take it to a potluck your dish will come home empty.

I really like recipes like this that are assembly only. I baked it in the oven, but you could also do it in the slow cooker, if that’s more convenient for your day.
Answer this: How often do you go to potluck meals and what’s your favorite dish to take?
