    I’ve not tried the Crispy Hashbrown Casserole yet but look forward to trying it. The directions don’t include when to add the hash brown. I assume the hashbrowns are to be added to all other ingredients prior to adding to the casserole dish. Please I form. Otherwise the hashbrowns might be omitted. Thank you.
