Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole Recipe
Cracker Barrel is one of our favorite restaurants to dine out at especially when we are traveling and need a quick always delicious comfort food meal.
Right now the closest Cracker Barrel to us is in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. There is talks of opening one Spokane restaurant but we haven't seen anything finalized or built quite yet. Though I am all in for it happening.
We are getting our first Chick-fil-A soon so that will be a new southern specialty finally hitting the inland Northwest.
Since we are not really leaving the house right now and definitely are not crossing any state lines we decided it was time to deep dive into making our favorite Cracker Barrel menu items at home.
I am trying to make most of my husband's favorite meals here at home to help lessen the crazy of not leaving the house.
This hash brown casserole recipe is so easy to make and tastes so good! I mean how can you go wrong with a breakfast casserole side dish packed with shredded hash browns.
Pair with eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, and veggies for an amazing breakfast. We love serving this copycat recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas morning brunch/breakfast.
- Frozen Shredded Hashbrowns
- Cream of Potato, Cream of Chicken, Cream of Cheddar Soup or cream of mushroom soup.
- Sour Cream
- Colby Cheese or cheddar cheese
I use cream of potato soup when I make this since I can never seem to find Cream of Cheddar Soup. I make it vegetarian so we can both enjoy it. If you are not worried about it being vegetarian you can make it with cream of chicken soup for extra flavor.
If you don't have colby cheese you can easily use cheddar cheese or sharp cheddar cheese. This is an excellent recipe for making adaptions based on what you have available.
If you like extra crunch on your hash brown casserole a sprinkle of crushed cornflakes tossed in melted butter over the top.

Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.
9x13 Casserole Dish/baking pan
Don't forget to set your frozen hash browns out to dethaw to room temperature at least 30 minutes to an hour before you need them.
You will want a LARGE bowl to mix this Cracker Barrel Hashbrowns Casserole together. I grabbed a bowl I thought would be too big and it was barely big enough.
A 9x13 Casserole Dish is perfect for baking this recipe. You want a baking dish that is easy to remove from the oven.
I like to broil the casserole for a minute or two at the end of cooking to get crispy edges and brown the cheese. This is totally optional if you are not worried about the crispy ends.
A hard plastic spatula works great for serving this cheesy hashbrown casserole.
