Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

28 Dec

I LOVE this casserole.  I don’t make it very often because it makes so much and I don’t want to feel like I have to eat it all.  It is definitely a family favorite, and has become a favorite of friends that I have made it for as well.  My college friends refer to it as Corn Flake Surprise, referring the to crushed corn flake topping.  This was another of our Christmas dinner sides this year and I was so happy my mom made it.

Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

What you need:

1 32-oz frozen Southern style hash brown potatoes, thawed
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (10 3/4-oz) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted, divided
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 cups corn flakes, slightly crushed

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl, combine hash browns, cheese, soup, sour cream, and 1/2 cup melted butter. Spread into a greased 13in x 9in baking dish. Sprinkle with paprika. Combine corn flakes and remaining butter, sprinkle on top.

Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until heated through.
