Hashbrown Casserole

Yum-oooooh-yum-yum-yum do we love this!  Hashbrown casserole has been a family favorite since a co-worker back in my insurance days raved about a new potato dish she had at a function.  I made this for my family, and it was a hit and became part of my niece Hilliary's birthday dinner request, smiles. 

I brought this to a small Mother Day's gathering and this simple casserole won new devotees for its cheesy, crispy, potato goodness.  I mixed all the ingredients together ahead of time, sans cornflakes which I added just before baking, so it was a timesaver.  Serves 8-12 people, depending on appetites.

Hashbrown Casserole

2 pounds frozen hashbrown potatoes (the diced potato kind, not the shredded)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pint of sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (other cheeses also work well)

1 cup (or more!) crushed corn flakes
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350*F.  Generously butter a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish.  Combine the first four ingredients together (can use the casserole dish to save a dish).  Top with the crushed corn flakes and butter.

Bake for 60-90 minutes.  Serve hot.  Rewarms well but the cornflakes loose some of their crunch.


  1. Crushed corn flakes make the whole casserole looks so great! Crunch, smooth and creamy...heavenly!

  2. Going to have to make this....corn flakes with butter...yum!

  3. This is one of our favorite casseroles too! It goes with just about any entree, and it's so easy to make. Addictive too.
    Yours looks fantastic too Katy, and now I want to make it this coming weekend.

  4. This is a favorite at my house, too, though it was entitled "Funeral Potatoes" when first got the recipe. The reason was simply that it was always among dishes brought to that occasion. We've renamed them; they are soooo good.

  5. Very new dish to me, and it looks so inviting! I love the look of that crushed corn flakes on top, I'm sure my boys will love this. Have a great day Katy!

  6. What a crunchy cornflake topping for an addictive casserole!
    Great recipe

  7. hey...this is new to the idea and with the son home over the summer I think this is a perfect weekend 'brunch' dish. I say brunch because you tell me what young man wakes up early enough to have a 'breakfast'...grin.
    BTW...the comment moderation word is 'fuelugge'....close enough for me..grin

  8. One of my very favorite things in the world, Katy! It's fun to look at all the recipes you've added since I last looked at your blog - got my eye on the strawberry cake and the green bean/pork chop casserole - yumminess!

  9. oooh I love hashbrown casserole, and this one looks fantastic!!
