CHEESY HASH BROWN CASSEROLE INGREDIENTS
  • Hash browns: In larger stores, the freezer section usually has frozen shredded potatoes. This is where you may buy frozen French fries.
  • Dairy: From the dairy department, you’ll need cheese, sour cream, and butter. For the cheese, I prefer to use a blend of white and yellow cheddar.
  • Pantry: Condensed cream of chicken soup is used to make the creamy sauce for the potatoes. This Chicken Parmesan is a terrific example of a weekday dinner that makes great use of this quick item. To gently coat the baking dish, you’ll also need cooking spray or oil.
  • Seasoning: The hash browns are seasoned with salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  • Garnish: If preferred, chop some parsley, green onions, or chives.

RECIPE TIPS

  • Select frozen hash brown potatoes that don’t have freezer burn for the greatest results. When defrosted, icy potatoes are more prone to get mushy.
  • After defrosting, if the hash browns are still too moist, lay them in a colander or mesh strainer and gently press down to remove extra water. Next, use paper towels or a lint-free kitchen towel to pat them down.
