What is Hashbrown Casserole?

A hashbrowns casserole uses a number of ingredients such as hashbrowns potatoes, cheese, cornflakes, and sauce and bakes them in the oven. Hashbrown casserole is normally eaten for breakfast, but it can be used as a side dish or enjoyed at potlucks.

Important Ingredients You Will Need to Make Hash Brown Casserole

  • Frozen Hash Brown Potatoes- These are found in the freeze section of the grocery store. You can grate your own potatoes or even use tater tots. If you use anything other than the traditional frozen potatoes, you will need to adjust the cooking time.
  • Sauce– When you are making the creamy sauce for this recipe, you are using the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and mayo. These ingredients come together for a delicious creamy sauce. In a pinch, you can use cream of mushroom soup, but this does give the casserole a different flavor.
  • Cheddar Cheese- Cheddar cheese is my favorite choice but you can use whatever shredded cheese you like.
  • Corn Flakes Cereal- Make sure you are using corn flakes and not frosted flakes. Frosted flakes are sweetened and this is not what you want in your hashbrown casserole.

Can I Make Hashbrown Casserole The Day Before?

Yes, this hashbrown casserole can be made ahead if desired. You can prepare all of your ingredients and store the baking dish in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to bake it.

How to Make Hashbrown Casserole

Set the oven to 325 degrees and use Pam cooking spray to lightly grease a 13×9-inch baking dish. Add the hashbrowns, cheese, soup, sour cream, mayonnaise, and seasonings into a large bowl and combine until fully incorporated.
