3-step Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

A cheesy hashbrown casserole might be considered as a breakfast meal but it's so much more than that. Yes, it goes well with eggs, toast, bacon, and sausage. But you can also use hash browns to substitute rice or baked potatoes and serve them for dinner alongside roasted meat. The best thing is that it only takes a couple of ingredients and very little preparation. Learn to make them by following this hashbrown breakfast casserole recipe.

Should I thaw frozen hashbrowns before cooking?

As with any other ingredients it's recommended to thaw hashbrowns before cooking. Cooking them frozen means that the heat spreads unevenly and your hash browns might cook from the outside, but will stay frozen inside. Cooking them frozen might also result in them becoming too mushy and watery. Thawing them beforehand will allow you to remove any excess moisture and then cook them to perfect crispiness.

How do you thaw frozen hash browns?

You can thaw hash browns by keeping them in a fridge overnight. Alternatively, if you are pressed for time, thaw them in a microwave. Simply transfer potatoes into a large bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Microwave it on 50% power for approx. 3 min, stirring and turning them halfway through. Once done, drain the excess liquid. 

What do you eat with a hash brown casserole?

Hash browns casserole is usually considered to be breakfast food, often served with eggs, bacon, sausage or ham, toast, baked beans, etc. However, they will go well as a side dish to any protein-based main meal like chicken, steak or ham. You can easily use hash browns instead of rice or baked potatoes.
