Hashbrown Casserole

First of all, go to my site at Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters for a chance to win a free copy of my cookbook The Pioneer Cookbook: Recipes For Today's Kitchen!
Many of you may be familiar with The Cracker Barrel (I actually worked there for a brief period of time while I was in between jobs in college).  They serve something there called Hashbrown Casserole, truly a delicious way to get a potato fix satisfied. 
This Hashbrown Casserole is reminiscent of that, but homemade is always better.  I actually serve this as the main dish with vegetables on the side (it is very filling and comforting all by itself).  To make it even more of a meal feel free to stir in some of your favorite chopped vegetables before baking.
Hash Brown Casserole
This recipe is straight from my cookbook entitled The Pioneer Cookbook: Recipes For Today’s Kitchen.
2 large potatoes, peeled and grated             
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
¼ cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup milk
½ cup vegetable broth
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Lightly coat an 8 x 8-inch square baking dish with butter. In a large bowl combine the potatoes, cheese, and onion. In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients. Spread the potato mixture into the prepared baking dish, then pour the liquid mixture over the potatoes. Bake for 1 hour, stirring after 30 minutes.
