Hash Brown Potato Casserole Recipe

This is a delicious hash brown potato casserole recipe that I first received from my friend Vera when I was looking for easy party potatoes.

So naturally I call them Vera’s Potatoes.

They are so delicious that they get eaten completely every time I serve them!

This easy potato casserole is perfect for guests, on a buffet table or a take along to a pot luck dinner.

  • Vary the recipe by using any cream soup you like. Make it a vegetarian potato casserole recipe by using cream of celery soup for example. Cream of mushroom is a bit too strong for this recipe I think, but that’s my opinion. You may love it.
  • Make it a lower fat recipe by substituting low fat soup and sour cream. I would suggest using regular cheese, as low fat cheese will not melt the same.
  • If you want you can add 1/2 cup of chopped red or green sweet peppers to add color and flavor, as in the image above.

If you are not feeding a group, or aren’t looking for leftovers (they make amazing leftovers), you can easily make 2 square casseroles instead of 1 large one, and freeze the second. That way it’s an easy dinner recipe any night of the week.
