We love potato casseroles and this one was no exception. It was creamy, cheesy, and, most of all, delicious!  This makes a ton so it is great for potlucks, dinner parties, and the holidays. Since there are only two of us at our house, I always divide the potato mixture between three disposable foil pans and freeze two for later.  It is such a timesaver! 

This Cheesy Potato Casserole is super easy to make. Simply mix together cream of chicken soup, sour cream, cheese, frozen shredded hash browns, salt, and pepper. Spoon the potato mixture into a baking dish. Crush some cornflakes and toss with melted butter. Spread the cornflakes on top of the potatoes and bake.

There is no need to thaw the potatoes before making the casserole. I used cheddar cheese, but you can use any type of cheese you prefer. If you are looking for a gluten-free recipe, feel free to leave off the cornflakes or use gluten-free cornflakes. Also, look for gluten-free cream of chicken soup at Walmart.

Cheesy Potato Casserole Recipe – frozen hash browns, cream of chicken soup, sour cream and cheddar cheese – freezes well for a super quick side dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (30 to 32-oz) bag frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 1 (16-oz) container regular or reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 (10.75-oz) can regular or reduced-fat condensed cream of chicken soup
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 2 cups corn flakes crushed

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Combine sour cream, cream of chicken soup, pepper and cheese in a large bowl. Fold in the hash browns and pour into a 9×13-inch casserole dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Combine the melted butter or margarine with the crushed corn flakes and sprinkle over top. Bake for 45 minutes.

Notes:

Can divide the potato mixture between three 8×8 foil pans and freeze two of them. I cover the pans with saran wrap and foil and pop them in the freezer. I put a pan in the refrigerator on the morning that I want to serve them so they thaw out a little before baking as directed above.

  1. In WV we call this "Hash Brown Casserole. Instead of sour cream we use french onion dip. It makes it more Kid friendly!

  2. This a staple at our house (its an Idaho thing) just to add to your already awesome recipe, bake at 400 degrees it makes them crispy on the edges!

  4. That is an oldie but a goodie. Everyone has their own version and name. My sister calls the Funeral Potatoes because she always brings them to the funeral luncheons. I know it's morbid! But we all love them. I prefer to call them Harvest potatoes.

  5. It looks and sounds delicious and my eye was really caught by the piece of meat behind it. I have to believe the leftover casserole would be great for breakfast topped with an egg.

  6. Everything I have made from you, is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes!
    My hubby works for a potato company so I get a lot of free potatoes. It pretty awesome. Always looking fro recipes like this.
    You're the best.

  7. I have a recipe very similar and it is sooooo good. Next time I make it I am going to add chopped chicken and make it an all in one meal. Yum!

  8. MMM!! I think I will make this and add either some bacon or sausage to this and take to church for Easter breakfast!! THanks for sharing 🙂
