A Side of Hashbrown Casserole with Fresh Chives

Sounds slightly fancy but it’s actually VERY easy to make and really not fancy at all….lol  Casseroles are making a comeback which is not a surprise with our current economic situation so when I can find a good casserole that is cost friendly and easy, I run with it full speed ahead.

This recipe calls for frozen diced hash browns in a bag but could easily be made with real potatoes.  Since the majority of my readers are working women who don’t have time to peel, dice and bake potatoes once they get off from work, I decided to share the frozen version with you to help speed things up a bit.


  • 1 32oz bag of frozen diced hash browns
  • 8 oz grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 16oz container of sour cream
  • 1 can of cream of chicken or mushroom
  • 1 stick of butter melted
  • chopped chives


Make sure your chives are chopped and then mix ALL the ingredients in a big bowl.  Pour in a 9×13 pan and bake for 1 hour at 375′, uncovered.


TIP: If you don’t want to use grated cheddar cheese, then you could use a can of cheese soup which is actually better but I didn’t have any.

Great side dish for pork chops!
