Hashbrown Casserole

Ok…so I can’t for the life of me get the html codes right for what I wish to accomplish at this time. Don’t worry, one day everything will be perfect and organized….but for now, let’s make some food!!!

This casserole has been in my family for longer than I can remember. It is one tasty side dish and is E-A-S-Y!  We call them “Wally Potatoes” after my aunt Val, who we used to call Wally….and I have no clue why 😛 lol

So go grab all these ingredients and get prepared for a heart attack! it’s that GOOD!


  • 1kg bag of frozen hashbrowns.
  • 1 500mL tub of sour cream.
  • 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup.
  • 1 small white onion (or use part of a bigger one at your discretion).
  • 1/2 cup MELTED butter.
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese.
  • *optional – fresh parmesan for garnish
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350F and grab a huge bowl!
  2. Grab your bag of hashbrowns and pour them in the big bowl.

3. Pour in ENTIRE tub of sour cream.

4. Grab both cans of the mushroom soup and open them. *smile pretty too so you’re in a good mood*

5. Pour the cans into the bowl /w the hashbrowns and the sour cream.

6. Grate the onion and make sure you do it on the smaller side so it creates a nice pulp.

** If you have someone else /w you (ie: your husband or partner in crime) enlist them to finish the onion b/c it’s the worst part!

7. Mix all the ingredients together (yes I am fully aware I could’ve just stated that in step one ;))

8. Melt the butter and grate the cheese. Toss the butter in first mix, and then mix in cheese.

9. Put mixture into a NON-greased 9X13 inch pan.

10. Put in the oven for 90mins. It has never burnt on me I always leave it in for the full time.

11. Remove from oven and let sit for as long as you can tolerate – it will smell awesome and taste EVEN BETTER 😀

Enjoy! Logan loves it and wants you to know he helped too :)

  1. I would totally try that! I have a hashbrown casserole with ham, corn, butter, and cheddar cheese. I know there are zero calories in both! :)

    • Colin wanted to respond to your comment –

      “Oh, basically I hate mushroom soup, mushrooms, anaything mushroom related and there’s no way you’d know that that was even in there”

      And now it’s Ali again….Colin is the PICKEST eater ever and he’s against trying new things so that is saying a lot :) feel free to use another cream based soup though!

  2. This reminds me of a recipe I have for a ‘make ahead breakfast casserole’. I like it so much, I’ll share :)

    1. Layer bottom of pan with hash browns; cover with layer of cooked bacon (peameal or normal)
    2. Mix 8 eggs with 1 cup milk and pour over meat layer
    3. Cover with shredded cheese
    4. Cover, let sit overnight in fridge
    5. Preheat oven to 350, cook 1hr

  3. okay, u win the award for the cutest, looking the most enthusiastic about cooking family ever!! adorable! :)

    i’m not a huge casserole person per say, i think i may have tried a tuna casserole waaay back when i was a kid and remember liking it. i do like hash-browns, so what the heck i’d prolly give it a whirl. :)

    hope u all enjoyed a tasty meal! and thanks for stopping by my site! :)

  4. YAY for the new blog!!! It looks amazing :)

    I would totally try your casserole, except I’m not allowed to eat it right now (doing a 30 day Paleo trial to see if it helps my health issues). However I’m sure if I made it for Dan he’d love me just a little bit more then he already does :) I’m not a casserole person as I don’t like my foods touching… except in lasagne – does that count?
    ps. love love love your red nails!

    • Well ya make it for Dan….or wait to make sure you’re in the clear and I;ll make it for you! lol Nice to see you Hope you had a great holiday!!! Thanks for dropping in :)

  5. This looks amazing! I will definitely be whipping this up at some point! P.S. Colin’s face while he is shredding the onion cracked me up. It is classic!

  6. Colin looks like he’s loving that job! Haha. Go Colin! So, I’m coming over for dinner tonight.

    Okay, maybe not… Guam is a little far away. But you know I’ll be making these, because they are exactly the kind of unhealthy dish that I love. Does it get better than a ton of sour cream, mushroom soup, and cheese?! No. It does not.

    Also, I will most definitley be calling this dish “Wally potatoes” and it will pass down through the generations as such and no one will have any idea why. Haha. Hilariousl that it somehow derived from the name Val! :)

    • lol ya I THINK, but not 100% that her daughter, my cuz called her “wally” b/c she couldn’t pronounce Valerie and it just stuck but I’m not 100% 😛 lol

      anyway I wish we could meet each other. I can’t wait to meet peanut!

  7. Yum yum yum yum yum!!!!! I can not wait to try this! But if I do not appear at your blog a couple of days after I have made this, then I will have most likely had a heart attack and died! But dont worry, it will have been worth it! hahaha! But really, it looks really good!

  8. This is a family favorite at our house too! It is soo good.
    We top ours with crunched up cornflakes and a little butter though.
    Sometimes I add ham to made a cheater version of scalloped potatoes and ham.
    Tasty goodness.

    • You could use any cream based soup :) so a cream of broccoli, cheese, whatever. Although Colin hates mushroom soup too but he says you can’t even notice 😉
