Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole - just 5 minutes to put together and then throw in the oven. It's one of the best and easiest potato side dish recipes you'll ever try!!

I don’t think I can stress this enough, but I LOVE easy and delicious recipes!! Bottom line – I LOVE food. It makes me happy. 🙂 Can you relate? Now, having professed my love for food, I admit that I go in spurts of being Betty Crocker and times when cereal is sounding pretty darn good. Fortunately, over the years I have collected quite a list of easy and delicious recipes. I definitely have my “go-to” recipes I use for our family dinners as well as the recipes I make when we are having company. Today’s recipe for Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole is going on that “go-to” list.

You guys – this recipe is one of the easiest things I’ve EVER MADE!! It reminds me of the Funeral Potatoes we’ve made for years and years but it’s even easier!! 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. I was so excited that it tasted amazing as well!! I know it would be the perfect side dish to any meal, and I’m thinking it would be great for Thanksgiving too.

Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

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. Everyone loves it.

    I think that I am going to have to make this for my husband soon. This looks & sounds very similar to the hashbrown casserole that they serve at Cracker Barrel, and he LOVES it. 🙂

    Gotta love one-dish meals! I bet this is a hit with everyone!

    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!!)

    I’ll take that whole pan please! This casserole is all things good in this world – YUM!

    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!!

      Brandy Ark

      Hi Donna, is it two separate cans of soup or one can of cream of chicken with mushroom?

        Donna Howard

        It was one can of both!! Such a good combo. Make these – they are yum yum!!

    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!
