This hash brown casserole is welcome at any potluck, family gathering, or holiday table, and never fails to impress despite how easy the recipe is to toss together. Shredded potatoes and onion bake in a slightly tangy, cheesy sauce with a crisp topping that gets its crunch from an unexpected ingredient: crushed cornflakes. You can make this hash brown casserole recipe for breakfast, brunch, or as a crowd-pleasing side to a meatier main course. No matter how you make it, it will be a hit.
cost per recipe: $9.75
Heat the oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating, stir the soup, sour cream, butter, potatoes, onion and cheese in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Top with the crushed corn flakes.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the mixture is hot and the corn flakes are lightly browned.
Easy and tasty!
This is really super easy to make: just mix the ingredients, add the topping, bake and enjoy. It tastes great as written, but the possibilities for tweaking to your taste are endless. Use different cream soups, switch up the type of cheese, add other ingredients like ham or peppers... it's up to you and will probably still taste great. My personal favorite is to add cooked chopped bacon, either in with the other casserole ingredients or sprinkled across the top.
BEEN MAKING THESE POTATOES FOR YEARS, USUALLY AT HOLIDAY TIME. CALL IT ADA POTATO. USE CREAM OF CHICKEN SOUP.
Great side for brunch or dinner
I got this recipe years ago from a friend and have tweaked it to our liking. I usually make a double or triple batch using Campbell's cream of mushroom soup, frozen hashbrowns, sour cream, butter, shredded cheese, crunchy fried onions on top and also stirred into the recipe so that you don't have to chop onions.
I have been looking for this recipe for awhile...the only difference is I use the can of Fried Onions instead of Corn Flakes or I have used Corn Flakes, but added Onion Powder, Garlic Powder & freshly grind Black Pepper. So, So, So GOOD
Crock pot style
I have made these in my crockpot for years... just add the cheese to the mixture instead of using as a topping. Cook on low for 6 hrs. My family beg for these at large functions. So easy and I am the hero!
