Blue Ribbon Recipe

What a deliciously cheesy hash brown casserole. A potato lovers dream! They're creamy and tart with a bit of sweetness from the oven. A crunchy Corn Flake top puts it over the top. So simple to make, it would be a great breakfast or dinner side dish.

How To Make southern hash brown casserole

  • Thawed hash browns in a bowl.
    As mentioned above, thaw hash browns (or use refrigerator style hash browns).
  • Hash browns, cheddar cheese, melted butter, salt, onion, soup, and sour cream combined in a bowl.
    In a large bowl, mix together hash browns, cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup melted butter, salt, onion, soup, and sour cream. Stir until evenly mixed.
  • Spraying pan with non-stick spray.
    Spray a 9 x 11 or 9 x 13-inch pan or casserole dish with Pam or lightly grease the dish. This helps with clean up.
  • Cheesy potato mixture added to the baking dish.
    Pour mixture from the bowl into the pan and spread evenly with a spoon. Do not pack down tightly.
  • Buttered Corn Flakes added to the top of the potatoes.
    In a small bowl, mix together Corn Flakes and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mix together and spread on top of casserole.
  • Casserole baking in the oven.
    Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes without a lid. The top should be lightly browned when done.
