This is my Hubby’s absolute favorite, he always requests it at Thanksgiving and Christmas. So this year I made a double batch and froze them so they were ready to go. We actually traveled Thanksgiving Day, this year and these bad boys were perfect to pop in the oven once we got there! Everyone loves Hashbrown Casserole on both sides of our family so I always get stuck making them (I can’t complain they are super easy and perfect for me because were are never in one place for very long so they are great to make ahead of time) Can you guess what I’m bringing for Christmas Dinner?
I’ve done them separate so I can just show you one! I’m also doing them in cheap disposable aluminum pans because there will be too many dishes to do already. My Mother-In-Law and I don’t just love doing the dishes while everyone else is in their food comas!
The onions are optional because… well let’s face it, I forgot to chop them up and put them in for the Thanksgiving ones. (I’m not perfect) Dillon informed me he likes it better without the onions. So ha! We will just say I did it on purpose, Okay? Just keep it between us! I’m on the fence about whether or not I want to put them in for Christmas or not yet.
(Anyway your gonna need)
- 1 bag of frozen hash browns
- 1 can of cream of chicken (or cream of mushroom)
- 2 Tbs of butter softened
- 1 Small thing of sour cream (8 oz)*
- 2 cup of cheese (halved)
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Pepper
- 1 Tsp Garlic powder
- Small onion (optional)
(This recipe is not doubled)
Stir salt, pepper, garlic powder, sour cream, cream of whatever soup, butter, onion (if your using), and 1 cup of the cheese together until blended. Next, add the hash browns in and mix well. Spread into pan and sprinkle leftover cheese on top. Cover with foil and freeze or bake.
When you’re ready to bake preheat your oven to 350. Bake for 25 minutes with foil on. Then remove foil and bake for 20 more minutes. If you froze them first like me just thaw out before baking.
*I have the bigger tub because I made two batches and just used half in each.
