Sour Cream Hash Brown Casserole

This is a holiday favorite! I doubled the recipe and used 2 cups of cheddar cheese and 2 cups of grated parmesan cheese. I stuck with the cream of chicken soup as my grandma always had, but this recipe is so versatile that any cream soup will do which is nice. Everyone loves the cornflake topping, but again it’s a matter of preference. This does take an hour in the oven even with the thawed hash browns.
