Creamy Hash Brown Casserole


One of my favorite things to do while I’m in the kitchen preparing our meals is to watch The Pioneer Woman. Not only does she have scrumptious recipes, she just seems like a really “down-to-earth” person and someone whom I would love to hang out with. Yes, I want to be her friend. (Insert a huge smiley face).

Well, it just so happens that my husband also seems to enjoy watching her show, (although he may never admit it publicly)The reason I know that he enjoys The Pioneer Woman is because of the “Oohs and Ah’s” that radiate from his side of the room whenever I have her show on the television. Truth be told… I think we BOTH would like to be her friend! (Insert two huge smiley faces!)

I digress… 

So last weekend, Ree was making a wonderful potato dish and the whole time she was cooking, my husband was drooling. I never knew that he likes creamy potato casseroles so much! Unbeknownst to him, that very day, I already had plans to make my own version of creamy potatoes called Creamy Hash Brown Casserole. (I felt so sneaky, Ha!)

I’d been wanting to make a potato casserole for awhile, so watching Ree make her yummy potato dish on TV, heightened my desire to make mine even more.

Hash Brown Casserole 3

This hearty creamy hash brown casserole works perfectly for breakfast, lunch or dinner. For breakfast, my husband placed two easy-over eggs on top of a helping of this casserole. For lunch or dinner, simply add a side salad and/or a vegetable and you have a complete meal.

This recipe would also be good to take to a pot-luck and/or a family reunion. 

Enjoy!
