When I think of the perfect side dish, I think of potatoes. They are delicious and nutritious, and best of all, versatile.
You can make them so many different ways — mashed, scalloped, fried, roasted, baked, the list goes on. They are delicious by themselves, with toppings, or in casseroles, making them a great addition to any meal.
My all-time favorite potato side dish is cheesy hashbrown casserole. It’s my go-to side dish for holiday meals or any time I am feeding a crowd.
I like to make mine with Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns. Unlike other hash browns, Simply Potatoes are always fresh, never frozen potatoes.
They taste great and I love that you don’t have to worry about thawing them before cooking them. They are yummy on their own or added to meals and side dishes.
My cheesy hashbrown casserole is perfectly delicious, but I recently discovered that it’s even more amazing “loaded.” Yes, just like a loaded baked potato.
Hash browns, bacon crumbles, green onions, and warm, gooey cheese combine with sour cream, cream of chicken/mushroom soup, and butter to create the ultimate comfort dish.
Are you drooling yet? I know I am!
The best part about this Loaded Hash Brown Casserole is it is super easy to make. Simply combine Simply Potatoes Hash Browns with the rest of the ingredients and bake it in the oven.
Then top with more bacon and cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted. Finally, top with green onions for an added kick of flavor. Yum!
This recipe serves around 8-10 people, which is perfect for smaller family dinners or get-togethers.
If you are planning on serving it to a crowd, simply double the recipe and bake it in a larger dish. Enjoy!

Hi Debbie! I think it would be great to try with tator tots - you may just need to adjust the baking time if they are frozen.

Can this recipe be cooked in a slow cooker?

Hi Helen! Yes, you could definitely make this recipe in a slow cooker. Just make sure to spray the inside with non-stick spray and then cook on high for 3 hours. I'd also wait to add the cheese and green onions on top until it's done. Thank you!
