I used frozen hash browns but if you wanted to do the work I’m sure 2 pounds of diced potatoes would work just as well. This Cracker Barrel’s Hash Brown Casserole is very simple to make and is delicious. We had left over’s so I froze some of it to take to work with me; it freezes just great. I love cheese, we don’t have a Cracker Barrel Restaurant here in the area so we don’t get to one very often. When I saw this recipe I had to give it a try. I served this with the Southern Fried Chicken recipe just previous to this post. It was a delicious combination.
2 lbs frozen hash browns
1/2 cup margarine or 1/2 cup butter, melted
1 (10 1/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
1 pint sour cream
1/2 cup onion, peeled and chopped
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray an 11 x 14 baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Mix the above ingredients together, separate the cheese so you have enough left to garnish the top. Place in prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes; remove from the oven and garnish the top with the remaining cheese. Then place back in the oven and bake until brown on top.
