Newfoundland Hash

October 14, 2010

Dear potheads: If you have come across this page because of an Internet search on “Newfoundland hash” please be advised that this is a baked dish for eating: not a dish to get you baked.  😉

This is a delicious hash brown casserole that was sent by Michael’s Aunty Elizabeth out on “the Rock”, and it’s original name is Bernice’s Hash Browns. But since I haven’t a clue who exactly Bernice is, I call it Newfoundland Hash.  🙂  There are no fresh ingredients in this dish, but nonetheless, it’s bloody delicious and even my salad-loving-friends can’t help but wolf down a few fork-fulls before reaching for more arugula.

A delicious and easy side to make if you are hosting a brunch. We make it on Christmas Eve and then stick it in the oven on Christmas morning so we have something to eat along with our Toblerone for breakfast.  YUM!

Newfoundland Hash

8 cups thawed hash browns (just buy your favourite frozen brand – the small cut/cubed size potatoes)

1/2 cup melted butter

1/4 tsp pepper

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 cups old cheddar cheese (pre-grated in a bag works great)

1 can undiluted cream of mushroom soup

1 can of evaporated milk

2 cups crushed corn flakes (NOTE: about 5 cups uncrushed)

1/4 cup melted butter

Combine first 8 ingredients (everything up to the corn flakes); mix in a bowl with spoon. Place in a greased casserole dish. Mix corn flakes and 1/4 cup melted butter and pour over dish. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes; cover the first 1/2 hour and uncovered the last 15 minutes.

Hint: Making this ahead is a great idea, but don’t add the corn flakes & melted butter until you are ready to put in the oven, otherwise the corn flakes will get soggy in the fridge while the casserole is stored.

    OH! Love the idea of having this on Christmas morning! This looks so easy and tasty. I bet you could even add some cubed / cut ham to it and poached eggs on top (maybe not for the kiddies!) and make it a full on meal. Thanks for sharing these ideas, Andrea! 🙂
