HOW TO MAKE HASHBROWN CASSEROLE
This is one of the quickest and easiest casseroles to throw together! You don’t even have to wait for the hashbrowns to thaw, you’ll use them frozen! Follow these few steps to make this amazing dish!
First, you will want to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Next, in a 9x13 pan, mix together the frozen hash browns, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and shredded cheddar cheese. After it is mixed thoroughly, you will want to flatten it out so that it’s evenly spread in the pan.
Top the mixture with the crushed cornflakes. You can also use breadcrumbs if preferred. Melt the butter, then drizzle the butter over the top of the casserole. Try to evenly pour the butter on the entire casserole.
Bake the casserole for 1 hour, leaving the pan uncovered while baking.
Serve immediately after taking the casserole out of the oven.
HOW LONG TO BAKE HASHBROWN CASSEROLE
This casserole takes one hour to bake. You do not have to do any pre-baking of any ingredients. Simply mix everything together and bake it as one.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH HASHBROWN CASSEROLE
The better question is what not to serve this amazing dish with! These cheesy potatoes go perfectly with just about any dish. Whether it’s for a potluck, a gathering, or a family get-together, they are everyone’s favorite dish.
I love to have this casserole in the summer when we are grilling out. The cheesy, potato flavor goes great with burgers, hot dogs, or steak fresh off the grill.
When I serve this as a breakfast dish, I tend to pair it with eggs, bacon or sausage, and toast. It really completes the homemade breakfast!
TOPPINGS TO ADD TO HASHBROWN CASSEROLE
If you’re serving your hashbrown casserole more as a main dish of its own, you may want to add a few items to it to make it a bit heartier of a meal. Here are some ideas for things you can add.
I have tried it with diced ham before and it’s amazing.
I have also added ground sausage. Just the simple addition of meat makes it feel like a more complete meal.
Either of these options is great for breakfast! Whip up some scrambled or fried eggs on the side and you’ve got the easiest complete breakfast ever!
HOW TO STORE HASHBROWN CASSEROLE
When I make my hashbrown casserole I usually make it in a pan that comes with or has a lid that goes with it. That way I can just pop the lid on and store it in the fridge.
When reheating the casserole it’s easiest to microwave it. Sometimes, the potatoes can get a bit dry. If that’s the case, try adding a bit more sour cream to them to give them some moisture back.
I do have to say that I typically do not have to worry about storing this dish!
Almost every single time I make it, the entire pan gets eaten! They are just so good.
Actually, when we are going to big gatherings, I tend to make two pans!
This is truly one of the best recipes to have in your back pocket. It’s so easy to make and it is the perfect item to bring to any get-together! People will be raving about it, trust me. I can’t wait for you to try it for yourself. I know you are going to love it.
