Hashbrown Casserole (1)

My grandmother makes the best hashbrown casserole and I’ve tried to make it like hers, but it never seemed to taste quite the same.  Then one day when while we were talking she surprised me when she said she uses margarine in her casserole rather then butter.  I’ve always used butter, but that night I made it with margarine and couldn’t believe the difference.  Now I know some people aren’t crazy about using margarine, but this recipe only uses 1/4 cup so it’s not that much at all.  I like to assemble this, wrap it in foil, place it in the fridge and then when it’s time to start dinner I just toss it in the oven to bake.  I like to serve this with some type of protein, but I’ve also added ham or bacon right into the casserole and called it a meal!
