Here's a classic hash brown casserole recipe. It's made with sour cream, cheese, and frozen hash brown potatoes.

Feel free to add a buttered bread crumb topping to this casserole for some extra texture and crunch. See the tips and variations for more.


  • 1 (30-ounce) package frozen shredded hash browns (thawed)
  • 1 stick/4 ounces butter (or margarine, melted)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 tablespoon instant minced onion (or about 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion)
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese (or Colby cheese, shredded)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Heat the oven to 350 F. Butter a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the thawed hash browns with the melted butter.

  4. Add the sour cream, condensed soup, onion, and cheese to the potatoes; blend well.

  5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking pan.

  6. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 1 hour.

  7. Serve and enjoy!


  • If desired, add a breadcrumb topping. Toss 1 cup of fine soft bread crumbs with 2 tablespoons of melted butter. Sprinkle over the hash brown potato casserole and bake as directed.
  • Use cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup in place of the cream of chicken.
  • Toss about 1/2 cup of crushed cornflakes with 1 tablespoon of melted butter and sprinkle over the potatoes.
  • Use a half-and-half blend of American and cheddar cheeses, or a cheddar jack blend.
