Hashbrown casserole

Hashbrown casserole is a southern favorite when it comes to the holidays! I love love love it. Potatoes, cheese, and onions YEAH. :D

This hashbrown casserole came from my cousin Linda, which was passed to my mom and then to me. My mom made some small changes as did I. The end result is an over the top crazy delicious hashbrown casserole.

Be careful with this one - too much and you're on a train to food-coma-ville. It's a happy but not very productive place. :)

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
  • 2 lbs frozen shredded potatoes or freshly shredded potatoes (I actually used a few more handfuls on top of that!)
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups grated cheese
  • pepper
  • Tony's seasoning (if you can't get Tony's where you are, order it! You will not be disappointed. :D)

You'll also need a 9x13 baking dish (glass works best) and an oven preheated to 350 F.

Chop the onion however big you like - I like mine a little chunkier. :D The cheese my mom recommends for this is a colby/jack mix, so I do that too. It's really good with anything that's not too smelly, though.

I don't add any salt to mine (the butter, cheese and soup will all have lots) but I do like adding a bit of Tony's seasoning and some pepper.

My mom says that you can turn it into a meal by adding ham to the mix - I want to add bacon! I didn't think about it until it was too late. Someone please add bacon and send me pictures. :D

Step 2: Defrost/shred the potatoes

If you're using frozen potatoes you'll need to defrost them. I put them in a large bowl and pop them in the microwave on the defrost setting - it took about 10 minutes to get them nice and defrosted. If you're good at thinking ahead, you can always pop them in the fridge the night before. :)

Once they're defrosted, let them hang out in a colander while you get everything else together.

If you're shredding your own potatoes they won't need any extra draining.

Step 3: Preheat and combine!

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Chop the onion and melt the butter.

Then combine all the ingredients in your baking dish. Mix very well! You want the potatoes to be coated with everything. After it's mixed, press the potatoes flat in the dish.

Step 4: Bake!

Bake for 45 minutes at 350 F. After 45 minutes, it'll be done but looking kinda pale. If this doesn't bother you, chow down!

If you'd like a little more color, broil it on high for 5-10 minutes. I love doing this because it makes the top nice and crunchy. :D

Step 5: Serve!

Hashbrown casserole goes great with everything! I especially like it with ham or BBQ. :D

It's also a really good midnight snack when it's cold right from the fridge.
Oh man, I have to try this! Just the first picture makes you subscribe worthy. :D

I definitely have to make this!!!
just tried this and its amazing. had to use some sweet potato as we diddnt have enough normal tatties. also added some shredded steak we had in the fridge. wonderful recipe and we are going to do it at Christmas for the whole clan
Jessy, I hate you and love you at the same time. I love hashbrown casserole and fried Oreos sound terrible for you, but so good and fattening at the same time.

So confused. lol

I tried it today! I substituted cream cheese for sour cream because that's only what I had in hand. And matched it with lettuce and sauteed ground beef. :D It's so good everyone in the family loved it! Thanks!

I have to smile because after 40 plus years he informed me yesterday he did not like the way I make potatoes for breakfast. I stopped by to see how you made this and was thinking he might like it. I will let you know if he did! Have a great day!

mmmm i looooove potatoes cooked like this, might have to try this one ;)
Oh that looks wonderful! (have to agree, though, that a sprinkle of bacon on top would really hit the spot) How do you shred potatoes? With a potato peeler?

Great recipe. A variation outside of the ham or bacon is to brown some hamburger with some of the onion and possibly green chillies add in a little more soup. Coat the bottom of the dish with the mixture and put the potatoes on top.
