CREAMY POTATO, CORN AND BACON CASSEROLE

Ingredients:

3 tbsps butter
3 tbsps flour
1 cup nonfat milk
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 package Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns
1 cup frozen corn
8 slices cooked bacon, chopped (reserve 1-2 tablespoons for garnish)
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced; some tops reserved for garnish
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 sleeve butter crackers, crushed (about a cup)
2 tbsps melted butter

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook until golden in color. Stir in milk and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Set aside.
In a large baking dish, stir together potatoes, frozen corn, bacon, sliced green onions and ¾ cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
Pour the cream mixture over the potato mixture and gently stir to coat. Spread evenly in the casserole dish.
In a small bowl, stir together the crushed butter crackers, melted butter and remaining ¼ cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the potato mixture. Top with reserved bacon.
Bake casserole for 20-25 minutes, or until bubbly and golden.
Can substitute breadcrumbs for the butter crackers.
