❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

This recipe uses frozen hashbrowns, which saves a lot of time. You don’t have to peel potatoes; you can just throw everything together and bake it. It’s a very easy recipe to put together! No thawing necessary!

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

  • Frozen diced hash brown potatoes (no need to thaw)
  • Cream of chicken soup (do not dilute)
  • Sour cream
  • Green onion or regular onion (optional)
  • Black pepper

  • Butter, divided
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, divided

SWAPS

You can use whatever cheese you like or use a combination of cheeses. If you are not a fan of onion, simply leave it out. I think you could use cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup as well.
