Can You Make It Ahead?
Yes, you can. You can also combine all the ingredients the day before (it’s fine to put the hash browns in still frozen if doing this) and keep it in a covered dish in the fridge overnight.
Leftovers will be fine-covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
Variations and Substitutions:
You can use tater tots in place of the hash browns if you have some to use up. The cooking time might be a little longer since they take a little more time to cook through.
