How to Make Pillsbury Cheesy Potato Casseroles?
These cheesy potatoes have become family legend. Don’t expect to have any leftovers of this simple cheesy potato casserole because it disappears quickly and everyone returns for seconds. This one is great for everyday dinners as well as holidays because all you need is one large mixing bowl and 45 minutes in the oven. Soon, you’ll be ready to serve a cheesy dish (along with jokes).
1 pint (2 cups) sour cream
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 cup chopped onions
1 bag (30 oz) frozen country-style shredded hash brown potatoes, partially thawed
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 pint (2 cups) sour cream, 1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 tablespoon garlic salt, 1 cup chopped onions, 1 bag (30 oz) partially thawed frozen country-style shredded hash brown potatoes, and 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz).
3. Pour into a 13×9-inch (3-quart) ungreased glass baking dish.
4 Bake for 45 minutes.
1 . Prepare the recipe the night before serving, cover tightly, and chill. Remove from the fridge, uncover, and set aside for 30 minutes before baking. Bake according to package directions before moving on to other last-minute menu items.
2. Combine the creamy potatoes and transfer them to a large slow cooker. Cook for 4 to 5 hours on LOW, stirring occasionally. Bring them to a potluck or serve them on a brunch buffet.
3. Before serving, sprinkle the top with chopped green onion or a handful of finely chopped parsley or other fresh herbs.
4. Instead of country-style shredded hash brown potatoes, try 1 bag (32 oz) frozen southern-style diced hash brown potatoes. Their chunkier texture holds up well when baked or slow cooked, and they make an excellent side dish for roasted meats.
5. Want to bring something sweeter to your next potluck? With a sweet marshmallow topping, Slow-Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole makes it simple!
6. Potatoes can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. That’s why this Slow-Cooker Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole makes it so simple to transform a side dish into a meal at any time.
Is it Necessary to Cover a Casserole When Baking it?
If you’re following a recipe, it should state whether you should cook covered or uncovered. Because most casseroles do not cook covered, it is probably safe to leave it uncovered if the recipe does not specify.
Is it Necessary to Cook Rice Before Adding it to the Casserole?
No. While in the casserole, rice and pasta will soak up the liquid and cook. However, cooking times will frequently vary. When using white rice, it is usually ready in 30 to 45 minutes. With brown rice, the casserole will take longer to cook.
Is It Possible to Prepare Pigs in a Blanket Ahead of Time?
Yes, and they can be both refrigerated and frozen. It’s best if you don’t make them more than two hours before baking. Assemble your pigs and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet, then tightly wrap them in plastic.
The term “casserole” is frequently used interchangeably as a recipe’s name and the serving vessel’s name. Casserole pans are typically deep dishes but can come in various shapes and sizes. The rectangular 13×9-inch casserole pan is arguably the most well-known of these. This pan is ideal for a large group and is also portable for potlucks and holiday parties. 8- or 9-inch square pans can also be used for casseroles for smaller groups. The rules for a casserole “recipe” are similarly lax. A casserole recipe in the United States typically consists of meat, various vegetables, a starchy binder (such as rice, pasta, or biscuits), and cheese baked in a deep dish.
