I have been using this recipe for years and we love it. Our favorite version though is to use the Simply Potatoes Southwest Style hashbrowns instead of the plain hashbrowns. This gives it a real kick and has tons of flavor. If I use the Southwest style I leave out the onion. I don't usually have cornflakes on hand, so, I generally just use crushed Ritz crackers instead. The potatoes do stay a little firm which we like, but, if you like them softer - I would saute the potatoes a little before mixing everything together.
Baked this casserole for 1 hour and hash browns were not done. I will either increase cooking time or up temp to 375/400 degrees. Liked flavor and ease of putting it together
This is the only way I prepare hash browns for company now. It is so good and very easy to prepare the night before and throw in the oven in the morning. The only changes I make are that I use half of the cheese and double the onion. I like big chunks of onion, too. You will not be disappointed! I've tried this with and without the topping and I really prefer it without. UPDATE: This is still my favorite way to prepare hash browns, but I have tried a few additions with some really great results. The best meat additions are either 3 heaping Tbls. Canadian Bacon, diced small or Pancetta, finely diced and sautéed. And adding just a pinch of red pepper flakes kicks up the flavor enough to make you wonder "WHAT is in there"?
I make this ALL the time at breakfast! I discovered this recipe at the hospital I worked at. They make this casserole and it always goes fast! I also make this minus the topping(ill have to try that) and instead of cream of chicken soup I use cream of mushroom. I also cook the potatoes in a bit of olive oil first for about 20 min in the skillet to soften them. They can be a bit to crunchy if not cooked before baking. This casserole is DELISH!
If you like cheesy potatoes, this is a great simple dish, you can add ham, turkey or chicken to it. You can also add whatever spices, cajun spice is great.
My husband LOVES this recipe, which we found on the package. That version didn't include the topping. We've experimented with various cream soups and really like the creamy green chile soup. It adds a spiciness that we prefer. It is very greasy, so he doesn't get this often, poor guy. Also, the very firm texture of the potatoes, even after cooking can take some getting used to.
great and simple recipe we use for parties all the time. I did change a few things. We like these to be super cheesy..so we double the amount of shredded cheese, and use a 4 cheese/taco blend, as it has more flavor and then we add 1 package of cream cheese that has been melted a bit. it makes this recipe super cheesy..we also do not add the crumbs on top, but the last 1o minutes we sprinkle another packag of shredded cheese on top and let it melt. YUMMY!
I've been making this since my oldest daughter graduated high school in 2005. Always a favorite!
