I made this for a girls'. brunch, and everyone loved it. I made as is with a little extra pepper. I couldn't find the cheese so I used the Philly cheddar blend. I will definately make again, it's as good as another CL casserole that uses hash browns, no soup, and I would try the variation of cauliflower mentioned in reviews. Delish as is, though, adding to my rotation.

I decided to split the ingredients into two different baking dishes and add eggs to one and it was fantastic! Makes a nice filling casserole for the family.

Used sausage instead of bacon and a blend of swiss and cheddar cheese. I also didn't refrigerate overnight but cooked the dish after assembly. It was really good although I wouldn't serve it as a main dish. This seems more like a side dish That could be served for breakfast or dinner. Good solid recipe!

Loved this! I also didn't let it sit overnight and just baked it for 30 minutes after I cooked up all the ingredients. Mine was not soggy at all - just perfectly soft and creamy as you'd expect it to be. I sub'ed Cream of Onion soup for the Cream of Mushroom because my bf doesn't like mushrooms and we both loved it. Even better reheated as leftovers for work the next day.

We have a similar potato dish that we like a tiny bit more than this one. It doesn't have bacon though...so this is a nice change. A bit time consuming as I did not make it a day ahead. Everyone loved it though, so that means it is a keeper.

Use simply potatoes brand refridgerated southwest potatoes. Cook in a non stick pan without added oil, for 15-20 minutes on very low heat. Then follow recipe as directed. These potatoes are a MUST!!!! No mashed potato texture, a medium amount of spice! Delicious!!!!

I used Cream of Chicken soup instead of Cream of Mushroom since that was all I had on hand. I also only used 1/2 the suggested amount of hashbrowns and it still turned out great! I am not a huge fan of onions so I was a little worried, but they gave just the right flavor and did not overwhelm the dish. I will definitely make this again!

My family and I enjoyed very much. Not mushy at all and plenty of flavor. I followed recipe exactly as written. EXCEPT I didn't let it sit over night nor did I bake as long as stated. I prepared the ingredients this morning and then baked it in the oven for 30 minutes, removed foil and baked 5 minutes longer to brown a little on the top. Will definitely make again.

Delicious! Hubby and three college aged kids loved. Only substitution was sharp cheddar as some revierwers felt the casserole needed more flavor. Also, I'm going to take a moment to get on a soapbox and bring up 1and 2 star ratings. If the reviewer followed the directions and found the dish lacking in flavor, texture, appearance, too much time, too costly, etc. the low ranking, in my opinion, is legitimate. Too often though, as with this recipe, a recipe is ranked poorly when many and/or significant substitutions have been made, OR the recipe doesn't meet an individual's nutritional goals such as low carb, low sodium, etc. this is why I try to read the low ranked reviews before making a decision.

I've made this twice now. The first time, I followed the recipe to a "T". I thought it was great. My hubbie loved it as did the kids. Since we're trying to cut as many carbs from our diet as we can, I decided to change the recipe. Rather than the hash browns, I took a large head of cauliflower and broke it up into tiny flowerettes. For the part where you cook the potatoes with the onions and garlic, I only browned the cauliflower (did not cook it through as I didn't want it to turn to mush during the hour baking process). Rather than using the Cream of Mushroom soup, I used 8 ounces of cream cheese. Since I was going to lose the flavor of the soup, I sauteed some mushrooms and added those into the mix, along with some herbs and spices. Everything else remained the same. Do watch closely during the last 30 minutes as it has a tendency to burn easily. Either way, this is a great recipe!

I changed this recipe because I am highly allergic to MSG. I changed the soup to Campbells Healthy Reqest Cream of Mushroom Soup. Or - I have a recipe for homemade from scratch Cream of Mushroom soup that is wonderful - just takes about 30 - 40 minutes to make and boy is it worth it. Also - there are only 2 people living in my house so I cut the recipe down for 2 and then used individual ramikins instead of the hugh casserole dish. The only thing is - place your ramikins on a sided baking sheet and on the 2nd 30 minutes of baking, watch to make sure they don't over cook or burn. Oh and yes - the 8+ hours is very necessary - else you get a soggy mess and not a great side dish.

Not as blown away as others -- I thought it was a little mushy for my taste -- more like mashed potatoes than what I think of as hash browns. But I didn't refrigerate overnight, so maybe that would have made the difference.

I didn't read the recipe carefully enough--ugh! Didn't let the casserole sit in the fridge overnight and baked for 30 minutes. I also somehow didn't have an onion in the house so I used a shallot instead. I served them alongside scrambled eggs and they were delicious--can't wait to try the leftovers.

I must have made a mistake. The hash browns did not brown nicely and stuck to the bottom of the pan. I added mushrooms, peppers and zucchini. I only used about 1/4 cup of cheese and used a can of cheddar cheese soup. The taste was delish but the presentation was not attractive. Sort of gooey.

Oh my! Trying to find ways to spruce up breakfast for my athletic teenage daughter. This recipe will go into the rotation. I used fresh Southwestern hash potatoes instead of frozen, and did not prep the night before- made fresh this morning. Soooo tasty . . . it doesn't seem like a low fat recipe. The Southwestern potatoes made this a bit spicy . . . will try regular hash browns next time, but this was truly fabulous!

No need to refrigerate or cook anything but the bacon before putting together and baking. Made it both ways and just as good. Save yourself some time!!! But excellent recipe!!! And to the carb guy with the low rating.... don't give a bad rating for a recipe just because you don't like what's in it. Just don't make it then and go help yourself to a couple pounds of bacon instead!!!!!!

This was a great recipe, even though the soup turned it grey. I used turkey bacon instead of regular to save even more calories and to cut back more on the carbohydrate's I didn't use hashbrowns, i grated a 50/50 mix of white potatos and turnips, you couldn't even taste them. I will def make this again.

I made this yesterday & baked it today. I didn't have yellow onion so I used a red onion instead & didn't have green onions on hand so I used chives. The bag of hash browns I had was a block when I went to put it into the pan so it took more like 30min to cook. Turned out great though! Even my husband enjoyed it, saying it was just like eating a loaded baked potato.

This recipe was alright, had potential but the flavors just weren't quite there. Perhaps a little bland. In the future, I think I'll try playing around with flavors and maybe use fresh potatoes, instead of frozen. Might make again with some changes.

I switched bacon for lean ham. and used low fat cheese. Came out fabulous. Be sure not to over stir the hash browns while they are cooking in the pan, they fall apart and become mashed pototoes. It's more work but next time I'm going to use freshly diced potatoes to keep their shape better. I prefer this dish with a fruit salad, but my husband of course ate it with eggs, he couldn't keep from having 3rds!

This was really good! I prepared it as written, but made the fat-full version, as I didn't have the fat-free ingredients. Tastes a lot like a loaded baked potato or the filling of twice baked potatoes. Tastes better on the second day; as in, seconds on the day after serving it initially. The only changes I would make next time would be to finely mince the onion and to be sure to cook it until completely tender. Other than that, it's awesome as is! I'm going to add it to my Christmas morning line up. That it needs preparation the night before, makes it perfect for that!

I made this casserole for dinner last night and it was delicious! I did not allow it to rest in the refrigerator overnight and it turned out just fine... Also, I chose this recipe so that I could try to use up some leftover Easter ham, so I omitted the bacon and added 3/4 lb cubed ham. It was fabulous! As another reviewer had suggested, I used a can of cream of potato soup, rather than the mushroom, and this too worked out extremely well. The serving size was very generous and tasted great accompanied with a mixed salad tossed in homemade vinaigrette! I would suggest this recipe for any meal- as a side or as a main course- and it has the added bonus that it can be made ahead of time. With the addition of the ham, I calculated that one serving is equal to about 7 weight watcher's points!

Made this casserole for Easter breakfast and it was definitely good. Instead of cream of mushroom I used cream of chicken. The only thing I thought didn't make this "outstanding" was the texture seemed too thick. I wouldn't call it mushy, but it somewhat came out like mashed potatoes even though I "gently" mixed everything together. Maybe it needs more of the cream mixture, so I might add more soup and/or sour cream if I make this again.

I made this casserole as a vegetarian main dish, omitting the bacon. It was enjoyed by the whole famlly who rated this recipe a 5 star winner. I served a Broccoli Waldorf Salad as a side dish which I made according to a Weight Watcher's recipe. I made several substitutions according to what I had on hand. I used shredded frozen hash browns in place of the Southern style hash browns. I mixed one quarter cup fat free yogurt with one quarter cup regular sour cream instead of the nonfat sour cream in the recipe. I used a pizza cheese blend as the topping. The results were still wonderful with all these substitutions and this recipe will become a regular side or main dish for our family. Delicious as a comfort food on a cold winter's night. Also would be a good dish for guests at a casual dinner.

I made this the morning after Christmas when we were off from work. It was pretty good. I couldn't find "cream of mushroom" soup in the store but did find "cream of mushroom with garlic" I am not sure if that made a difference or not. Also I just used my own blend of cheeses, including cheddar, provolone, and parmesan. I think that worked out well. Next time I might try to use cream of potato soup instead for a more potatoey flavor. Also the cream of mushroom gave it a greyish color that not everyone will find appealing.

This was truly outstanding & everyone's favorite for breakfast the day after Christmas. I would definitely make it for dinner too. I used shredded hash browns. I made it 2 days ahead of time & added left-over "Apricot & Sherry glazed ham" instead of the bacon to the already chilled casserole. I used 1/2 cup of onion instead of 1 cup, & added some minced dry onions instead of the green onions, which are family doesn't like. I did add a touch more sour cream, as it looked like the potatoes were not coated. Used mild cheddar cheese, but sharp cheese would be great too. It was fantastic & it's definitely now a family favorite!

FAQs

Why is my hash brown casserole soggy? ›

Frozen hash browns will leak moisture during cooking, which could leave a soggy, sad mess behind. For the best results, let the frozen hash browns thaw overnight in the fridge, then thoroughly pat them dry to remove as much moisture as possible before cooking them to crispy.

What can I add to my hash browns? ›

This recipe only calls for onion, but you could also add cheese, cayenne pepper, or garlic to the mixture. Form your hash browns into patties (either one large hash brown or multiple smaller pancake-like hash browns) and pan fry them in oil, about five minutes on each side.

Are there onions in hash browns? ›

This homemade hash brown recipe is really simple; it's a ratio recipe, so you can easily make more or less, depending on how many people you're cooking for. It's just a potato, an onion, a tablespoon of plain flour and an egg.

What will prevent the hash browns from becoming crispy? ›

Dry Potatoes = Crispy Hash Browns

Most recipes for shredded hash browns advise squeezing the potatoes to release as much liquid as possible before they're cooked. This makes sense—potatoes are loaded with moisture, which makes browning difficult.

Should you soak potatoes before making hash browns? ›

Most recipes require soaking your raw, shredded potato in cold water to rinse off the excess starch, then squeezing every last bit of moisture out before tossing it in a pan.
