Hash Brown Casserole
Hash brown casseroles are 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 also works great as a side dish anytime – breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner!Often times, you’ll see casseroles like this with crushed up corn flakes on top and melted butter. “Funeral Potatoes” is a common name for that dish. But, to save on calories, I didn’t include it here – and the results are still DELICIOUS!
In fact, the versatility is one of the great things about hash brown casseroles – that and the fact that they are SO easy to make!
Making Cheesy Ham & Broccoli Hash Brown Casserole
Really, you basically just mix a few ingredients together and dump everything in the casserole dish to make this! The star of course is the hash browns. And we love how easy those are to pick up at the store and keep in the freezer!
A traditional, basic hash brown casserole doesn’t have the ham and broccoli in it. So, this version is a little heartier. Made this way, the hash brown casserole really can be eaten as an entree with a side salad or some additional veggies. This also serves up perfectly for Easter brunch with some eggs and fruit! 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!
No matter what though, it’s super tasty! In fact, 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. It would be a GREAT way to use up some ham leftovers from Christmas or Easter
