Hash Brown Potatoes

I have the entire collection of Southern Living Annual Recipe Books thanks to my dear old dad. He started collecting them since 1979 when the series first started so I have found a lot of great recipes in those books. I know this is a simple known recipe and sooooo very fattening at that but I love to have it maybe once a month so it doesn't completely clog my arteries with all that bacon fat. Of course the bacon fat is what makes it so delicious. I am sure there is a way to make it less fattening by not putting the bacon fat but then it just wouldn't be the same now would it. Enjoy!
