My favorite casserole of all time
We have discussed our love for potatoes many times on Lil’ Luna. One of the best ways to enjoy them is in the casserole format. Although we have many potato casserole recipes on the blog, today’s Cheese Hashbrown Casserole is another favorite, perfect as a side dish for any dinner or holiday.
This hash brown casserole reminds me of the funeral potatoes we have made over the years, but it’s easier! ! The best part is that we usually have these ingredients at all times. All you need is some hash browns, butter chicken, sour cream, cheese, bacon, salt and pepper.
This dish is always a favorite!
How to make a hash brown casserole
This recipe is very simple. And fast!
Dump, mix + bake. You really mix everything together, pour it into a 9×13 container and bake it! ! You add some more cheese before the cooking is complete, but I tell you-it only takes five (yes, 5!) minutes of work.
It does require bacon, but if you want it convenient, you can just use pre-cooked bacon. We like that it requires very little work and is delicious.
We also have a slow cooker casserole version, so be sure to check it out.
Change + Service Guide
There are several ways to change this recipe. Here are some suggestions:
- Cubic potato pancakes-you can use these, but you may need to cook a little longer because the potatoes are thicker.
- Cheese-change the flavor by using different cheeses.
- Additives/ingredients-diced bell pepper, shallot, avocado, chili or red pepper flakes
- Mexican version-add some green chilies and Mexican cheese
Holiday Service Guide – Each 9×13 dish can usually serve 8-10 people, considering this…
- 20 servings-double recipe
- Suitable for 25-30 people-triple recipe
- 35 servings-quadruple recipe
Advance, freeze + reheat
One step ahead. Of course! We like that this side dish can be made 48 hours in advance. Just put the lid on and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake. If the casserole is still cold, increase the cooking time by a few minutes.
freezing. Wrap the plates in freezer wrapper or foil and store them in the freezer for up to 2 months. Defrost completely before baking. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until fully heated.
Reheat. It’s easy to reheat your hash browns casserole! Simply preheat the oven to 375 degrees and reheat it for 7-10 minutes or until it is hot. Or you can reheat it in the microwave until it is fully heated. The time will vary depending on your microwave oven.
Served with sour cream, bacon, cheese and butter chicken/mushrooms, this mashed potato dish is popular with everyone!
We always use potatoes as a side dish for Sunday meals and holiday dinners, so I am happy that we can use this recipe at those times, especially because everyone likes it.
