This recipe is a family favorite in our house. Hash browns smothered in lots of cheese, is there anything better? What I love about this recipe is it is so easy to put together and once everything is in the pan, the oven does all the work. Then after 45 minutes you have a scrumptious breakfast dish.

Now, just because this recipe has hash browns doesn’t mean you have to serve it for breakfast. This dish also makes a perfect side dish for your Holiday meals. I know I have made it a number of times for family gatherings because there are a lot of servings and everyone loves it!

FAQs

Do I have to use frozen potatoes?

Not at all! If you would prefer to shred fresh potatoes you absolutely can do so!

Can I use a different cheese?

Cheddar is my favorite for this recipe! If you want more of a twang then you can use sharp cheddar. But overall any shredded cheese will work for this dish!

Can this Cheesy hash brown casserole be made ahead of time?

Absolutely! You can put it together and store it in the fridge overnight or store it in the freezer for a week.

Can I add in a protein?

Why not? If you are wanting some protein added to this casserole, I would recommend mixing in some cooked breakfast sausage or crumbled up bacon for an extra element!
