I’m curious what you all eat for the holidays? Typically our meal is a carb overload. Of course we have the ham (or turkey for thanksgiving)…but then you have mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and hashbrowns. Oh and a basket of dinner rolls is a must too!
This Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole has been making appearances at family functions since I was young. You know, back when Corn Flakes cereal was like one of only 20 cereal choices. And as children, we liked Corn Flakes! I have to be honest, my kids don’t care for Corn Flakes (they much prefer frosted flakes). The only time we have a box of Corn Flakes in our pantry is when I know this hashbrown casserole is going to be on the menu!
My mom’s recipe uses shredded cheddar cheese. You know, the orange stuff in the bag (which we all love of course). However, if you’re looking to take this to the next level of deliciousness, try using Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar. It gives this dish such an intense, tangy flavor you can’t resist. And, it melts so creamy mixed up with the rest of the ingredients!
It’s such a great addition to any meal as it can be prepared ahead of time. All you need to do is pop it in the oven when it’s time to cook the meal. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!
How to make Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole (or funeral potatoes):
- In a big bowl, you’ll mix everything together. It’s okay if your hashbrown potatoes are frozen. My family prefers the “cubed” version, but if you like shredded feel free to use those!
- Crush your cornflakes slightly, you don’t want tiny crumbs here, but you also don’t want all whole flakes either. Mix up your corn flakes with the melted butter and sprinkle it over the top of the casserole.
- Cover with foil and bake. Until bubbly. About one hour. SERVE hot!
- This makes delicious leftovers too, so be sure to save it!
