We love this Cheesy Onion and Chive Potato Casserole. We’ve been making it all summer long to go with all our grilling recipes. It is super easy to make and it tastes great!!! There are only 5 ingredients in this cheesy potato casserole – frozen hash browns, cream of chicken soup, bacon, cheddar cheese and chive & onion cream cheese. The chive & onion cream cheese makes all the difference in this casserole. It makes the potatoes so creamy and delicious!

You can make this potato casserole ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later. I make this and divide it between three or four aluminum pans. I cook one and freeze the other pans for a quick side dish later. Just thaw the frozen potatoes and cook as directed.

I used a bag of diced frozen hash browns. You can use shredded hash browns if you prefer. Either one will work just fine in this casserole. If you don’t like cream of chicken soup, feel free to use your favorite cream of soup in the casserole.

  1. Looks wonderful BUT I don't every have frozen Diced hash browns on hand. I adore the Hungry Jack instant hash browns. Can they be used by any chance. Otherwise this has to be planed and not a spur of the moment

    1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  2. I added fresh green onion and some finely chopped cauliflower to the mix, then some bread crumbs on top of the top layer of cheese…. kids devoured it!!! Also used ready cooked bacon bits for quicker prep 🙂
    Thanks so much!! This is a new staple!!

  3. Couple of questions: Do you freeze it before or after baking and it I just freeze the leftovers. I usually unthaw in the refrigerator and take it out of the refrigerator to bring it to room before baking or re-heating. I take it that is the way to do it. Let me know the answers to the questions.
    Thank You
