Hashbrown Casserole

We’ve discussed our love of potatoes many a time here on Lil’ Luna. One of the best ways to enjoy them is in casserole form, and although we have plenty of potato casserole recipes here on the blog, today’s Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole is another favorite that is great as a side dish for any dinner or holiday.

This hashbrown casserole reminds me of the Funeral Potatoes we’ve made for years and years but it’s even easier!! And best part is we usually have these ingredients on hand at all times. All you need are some hashbrowns, cream of chicken, sour cream, cheese, bacon and salt and pepper.


How to Make Hash Brown Casserole

This recipe is very simple. You literally mix everything together, dump it in a 9×13 and bake it!! You add some more cheese just before it’s done cooking, but I’m telling you – just FIVE (yes, 5!!) minutes of work.

It does call for bacon, but you can just use pre-cooked bacon if you’re going for easy. We loved that it required little work and was so delicious too.

Can you use cubed hashbrowns for this recipe? Yes, you can – but you may need to cook it for a bit longer since the potatoes are more thick.

Can you make this ahead of time? Of course! We love that this side dish can be made up to 48 hours in advance. Just cover and store in the fridge until ready to bake. Add a few minutes to the cook time if the casserole is still cold.

How to freeze hashbrown casserole? Wrap the dish in freezer wrap or foil and store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Thaw completely before baking. Bake in the oven at 350 until heated through.

With sour cream, bacon, cheese and cream of chicken/mushroom, this hashbrown dish is a hit with everyone!

We always have potatoes as a side dish for Sunday meals and holiday dinners, so I’m glad we can use this recipe for those times, especially since everyone loves it.

Holiday Serving Guide – each 9×13 dish can typically serve 8-10 people, with that in mind…

  • For 20 people – double recipe
  • For 25-30 people – triple recipe
  • For 35 people – quadruple recipe

  1. Oh Kristyn – I am going to make this for sure. But is there a soup that is BOTH cream of chicken and mushroom, or one can each? You know me, such a goof when it comes to common sense cooking!! (If I get the answer today I am making this for our missionaries tomorrow!!)

  2. Found the right soup by the way! And made this last week — and this week both sets of missionaries, the Elders and the Sisters, commented on how much they loved the ‘funeral’ potatoes I made them last week!!! So thank you — again!!

  3. When I make cheesy hashbrown casserole I leave out the sour cream and add one packet of dry ranch dressing to it. My grandkids love it and ask for it everytime we have a holiday. Try it!
