A few weeks ago, my family and I took a long weekend trip to Disney in Florida to see our oldest daughter compete in a National Cheering Competition. During our stay, we met up with my Mom and her husband for a visit, went to Epcot then headed to the Contemporary Hotel for Breakfast with Mickey. If you've never gone, they serve a full buffet-style breakfast with everything you could imagine while the characters (Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Donald) walk around to take pictures with each table. It's really quite cute and I highly recommend it. One of the items they had on their menu were these Cheesy Hash Browns and they were so good, but when I found one of the Disney cookbooks in one of their stores and saw the recipe, I knew I could lighten it up a bit to make at home. Theirs had heavy cream, regular sour cream, and Cheddar cheese. I gave mine a little twist (go figure!) and added in some Asiago and Cheddar Jack cheese instead and used reduced fat where I could. I also opted for frozen potatoes (mainly because they were on sale), but you could certainly use fresh potatoes which would be a little more labor intensive. These were delicious and the family loved them!
