Loaded baked potato hash brown casserole

hashbrowncasserole

Ingredients

  • 1 (1 lb 14oz) package of frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/4 cup butter for sautéing onion
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 diced onion
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup crumbled bacon with some extra to go on top
  • 1 tablespoon freeze dried chives

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Sauté diced onion in 1/4 cup of butter.
  3. In a large bowl, combine hash browns, 1/4 cup melted butter, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, sautéed onion, cheddar cheese, bacon, salt, and pepper.  I recommend layering and mixing the ingredients as you go so it is well blended.  For an added kick of flavor I like to add sliced jalapenos to this.  This particular casserole was for the whole family (including the little one, so I had to leave out the jalapenos).  Also, I buy pre-cooked bacon crumbles from Costco.  Makes this a quick dish to throw together!  One my best finds!
  4. Place mixture in a large casserole dish.  Top with sprinkle of cheese and bacon.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes.

  1. Hey! Found you through the AGD Old Dominion Alumnae group – and I’m a blogger too! (beingmrsbeer.com) Your little one is too cute! Hope I’ll see you at some of our events this year – my daughter is 6 months old so maybe we could have a playdate!

    1. I’ll have to check out your blog! I need to check out the alumnae group. I would say we could do a play date soon but my little one is sick right now.
