Copycat Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole
We make a trip to Cracker Barrel occasionally for our family meals out. They have some amazing comfort food dishes. Most of the family chooses breakfast food. We all LOVE breakfast food for breakfast or for dinner.
After eating at Cracker Barrel a few weeks ago, my kids asked for me to make a copycat recipe of their delicious hash browns. They are overly amazing and just taste way different than any that I have made at home. I did a bit of searching online and found a recipe for a Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole over on GetInMyBelly. Come to find out, it is sour cream and cream soup that really push these hash brown potatoes over the top.
I did a few modifications to that recipe and made this amazing Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole to enjoy with our dinner for breakfast this week. I did use a sharp cheddar cheese because I like that it keeps our dishes from becoming overly greasy. I considered adding in some Colby but I did not have any on hand.
The addition of the sour cream and the cream chicken soup really made the casserole just like Cracker Barrel. My hubby is not a fan of sour cream so I made him our Copycat Cracker Barrel Fried Apples for him. Those are delicious and are an awesome copycat recipe.
Since this is a decent sized casserole, I think it will be great for potlucks or any time that we are feeding a crowd. I think we will make it for our next big family and friends breakfast. I know it will be a hit.
