Cheesy Potato Casserole is a mix between the one my Mom used to make, and one I found on the bag of my frozen hash browns a few years ago. This is a perfect side dish to any beef, ham or chicken dinner. I’ve even made it for breakfast!
This cheesy casserole is so comforting and yummy. I actually decided next time I make it, I’m going to throw in some chopped ham, and it’ll be a complete dinner in itself. I love it when you can turn a side dish into a main course with hardly any effort! With our hectic schedule, I am always trying to think of ways to make dinner time easier!
Cheesy Potato Casserole
- 1 bag (2 pounds) frozen Hash browns (shredded or diced)
- 2 cans (10 ounces, each) condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 container (16 ounces) sour cream
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup crushed corn flakes
- 1 Tablespoon melted butter
- 1 cup diced ham (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F°. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, mix together cream of mushroom soups, sour cream, onion and 1 ½ cups of the shredded cheese. Mix together well. Season with salt and pepper.
- Add in frozen hash browns, and chopped ham (if using) and mix all together well. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish; spreading out evenly.
- Bake uncovered, for 45 minutes.
- While potatoes are baking, mix together the crushed corn flakes, melted butter and the last 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
- When potatoes are done cooking, remove from oven and sprinkle the top evenly with the corn flake mixture. Place back into oven and bake another 10 minutes or until top is golden and bubbly. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
