Yum! Hash brown casserole is one of those “comfort foods” served up at all kinds of pot lucks, family meals and get-togethers. For many, it’s a staple at Easter. But, I happen to think that it works great as a side dish anytime – breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner!The beauty of hash brown casseroles is that they are SO easy to make! I picked up the Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Browns & other ingredients at Walmart, after browsing their recipes online. I found the classic recipe for Cheesy Potato Casserole and then decided to change it up just a bit. First up, I added ham & broccoli to the dish and it’s a GREAT addition. This way, you could eat it as an entree with a side salad or it serves up perfectly for Easter brunch with some eggs! The boys love this, so it’s definitely a kid-friendly dish!Yum! I love a versatile recipe that is not only a crowd pleaser, but is super easy to prepare. And, the way I made it, the casserole is completely gluten-free! Here’s the tasty recipe (adapted from Ore-Ida®):
- 1 10.5 oz can condensed cream of chicken soup (or 1.5 C of homemade)
- 2 Cups Sour cream
- ¼ Teaspoon Ground black pepper
- 2.5 Cups Shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 Package (30 oz.) Ore-Ida® Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes
- 1 Cup diced ham
- 2-3 Cups chopped broccoli (1 small frozen bag)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Chop frozen broccoli (thaw in microwave a bit if needed, but don't cook through). Chop/dice ham.
- In a large bowl, mix together soup, sour cream, and pepper. Stir in cheese (1.5 Cups), hash browns, broccoli, and ham until well combined.
- Spoon evenly into baking dish. Top with remaining 1 Cup of cheese.
- Bake uncovered for 45 to an hour (until bubbly & the cheese starts becoming golden brown).
- Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
- Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
- Garnish with additional sliced green onion if desired.
Super tasty! I think we have a new family favorite around here. Our family tradition is always my great-grandma’s potato salad for Easter dinner. But, I think this dish might be necessary for Easter breakfast…and maybe Mother’s Day brunch!
