1 26 ounce bag frozen country-style hash brown potatoes
2 cups shredded Colby cheese
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup milk
1/2 cup beef stock or canned broth
2 tablespoons butter, melted
a "dash" garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine the frozen hash browns, cheese, and onion in a large bowl. Combine the milk, beef stock, half the melted butter, the garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in another bowl. Mix until well blended, then pour the mixture over the has browns and mix well.
Heat the remaining butter in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat. When the skillet is hot, spoon in the hash brown mixture. Cook the hash browns, stirring occasionally, until hot and all the cheese has melted (about 7 minutes).
Put the skillet in the oven and bake for 45 to 60 minutes or until the surface of the hash browns is dark.
If your skillet isn't ovenproof (because it has a plastic handle), you can also sppon the potatoes into a glass 9-inch x 9-inch baking dish and place in the oven.
If you can't find Colby cheese, you can use Cheddar cheese.
