The BEST Potato Casserole Recipe

This Million Dollar Potato Casserole lives up to its name. It tastes like a million bucks! I made this potato casserole for dinner last week and we were both blown away. It is super creamy and delicious. I could have made a meal out of just this potato casserole. It was that good! This might be our favorite potato casserole. Well, maybe the second favorite behind our beloved Crack Potatoes.

How to Make Million Dollar Potato Casserole

Million Dollar Potato Casserole is super easy to make. Simply mix together cottage cheese, sour cream, cream cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, cream of chicken soup, cheddar cheese and frozen shredded hash brown potatoes. Spread the potato mixture into a baking dish. Top the casserole with some crushed Ritz cracker and butter and bake. 

You don’t have to thaw the frozen hash browns ahead of time. You can but it will still be just fine if you toss them in the casserole mixture frozen or partially frozen.

I know a lot of you have an aversion to cottage cheese. You gotta trust me on this one. It makes the potatoes so creamy and delicious. I promise you won’t even know it is in the potatoes. Cottage cheese is not something that I et straight out of the container, but I LOVE it in casseroles. I promise I wouldn’t steer you wrong. Picky eaters have to stick together!!!

Can Potato Casserole be Frozen?

You can make this potato casserole ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later. I usually split the potato mixture between several 8×8-inch foil pans. I love being able to pull a pan out for a quick side!

To bake the casserole after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below. If reheating the casserole, thaw completely and cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350ºF for 30 to 40 minutes, until warm.

  1. This is a was a big hit at my family Easter dinner yesterday. I doubled the recipe and loaded a 9×13 and an 8×10 pan. Delicious! I will definitely make again!

    1. I have not, so I don’t know how the cooking time would change. You can use freshly shredded if you prefer.

  2. I’m curious that if you are prepping this ahead of time and/or baking and then saving it for the next day to warm up and serve……do you still do the ritz crackers and butter then or not until you are warming it up for the time before serving? I’m also adding bacon bits to mine.

    1. Either way is fine. You can add the crackers when you reheat it if you prefer. I also LOVE the addition of bacon!

      1. Thanks. But if you do the crackers ahead of time and freeze or refrigerate with the crackers on too won’t they get overly soggy and won’t crisp up as well in the over? 🤷🏻‍♂️. Merry Xmas.

        1. No, but it sounds like you really want to just add them before baking and that is perfectly fine.

  3. Could I add roasted chicken breast to this?? Should I add some chicken broth so it’s not too thick?? N I cannot use cottage cheese could I just use sour cream??
