Hash Brown Potato Bake

This potato dish is one that my mom has been making for years. It is almost always made for our Thanksgiving, as well as when people come into town. Not only is it easy to make, but it makes tons, so its perfect for large gatherings or times when you want leftovers. 



  • 1 (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • Salt/Pepper to taste
  • 10 oz cheddar cheese, grated

    If you hover over the picture, you should see the “pin it” button? I just double checked to make sure it’s working and everything looks good. There is also a Pinterest button on the top right corner 😉
    Let us know if it still isn’t working and we can see if we can send you the pin 🙂

    Plenty of salt in the soup… they don’t need any additional! Instead of the cornflakes, I just sprinkle a little dill on top.

    Ohmygosh, Kristin… this is my favorite comfort food in the world! Well, I add bacon to mine, because.. well, it’s BACON! You don’t need an explanation for that, do you? 😉

    Pinned and Stumbled!

    I am definitely trying this. In our family, we have a dish called Crazy Potatoes that is very similar to this recipe. It asks for a can of Cheddar Cheese soup though. 😀

    I love the name of that dish! How cute! I bet the cheddar cheese is so good in that recipe, yum!!! Let us know what you think of our recipe when you try it!! 🙂

    I’ve made this many times. Always a hit. But I prefer crushed potato chips instead of the corn flakes.

    When I lake the hash brown recipe, I mix in the cheddar cheese to the other ingredients, it keeps the cheese from over browning or burning that way.
