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.

What You'll Need

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

How to Make It

Heat the oven to 350 F.

Butter a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan.

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

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

Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking pan.

Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 1 hour.

Tips and Variations

  • If desired, add a bread crumb 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.
