Hash Brown Potato Casserole

Everyone at my house has a favorite dish for the holidays. This Hash Brown Potato Casserole has been my daughter Susan's favorite for a number of years. She doesn't care what else I make as long as this is part of the menu. This casserole is really easy to make, so there's no reason to save it just for holidays.

Hash Brown Potato Casserole
1 (30 ounce) package frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (8 ounce) package shredded cheddar cheese

2 cups crushed corn flakes
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place thawed hash brown potatoes in prepared dish. In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, melted butter, soup, chopped onion, salt, pepper, and cheese; stir until blended. Pour mixture over potatoes; mix slightly. 
For topping, mix crushed corn flakes with melted butter and layer over top of potato mixture. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes.

This casserole is a side dish that goes well with ham, turkey, or any other meat you might be serving.


  1. I make a similar casserole. I don't put the topping on it. I also use 1 Tablespoon of Worchestershire sauce in the ingredients. Just gives it a bit of a zip, 16 oz carton of lowfat sour cream and the cubed hashbrowns. I call it the funeral casserole because for a while, it seemed that I was taking it to so many for the after-funeral-meal. It is a required dish for most of our family gatherings.
