The CLOSEST copy cat recipe to Cracker Barrel’s Hashbrown Casserole! My family thought I stopped at Cracker Barrel for take out when they tasted this hashbrown casserole!
  • 16oz shredded potatoes (now, you can use frozen hashbrowns for the easy version or shred your own Idaho potatoes for a more authentic taste- I used frozen and it still tasted FABULOUS just know that the potatoes are going to be a bit soggy)
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Sharp Cheddar (now, to get a better flavor buy the bar cheese and shred it yourself or you can go the easy route and use pre-shredded- just know that the pre-shredded isn’t as flavorful)
  • 1/2 Cup Colby Jack Cheese
  • 1 small onion diced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. If using frozen hashbrowns- place them in a baking dish and broil for about 15 minutes- stirring twice during baking to help make them less soggy.
  3. Blend the cream cheese and cream of chicken soup.
  4. Mix cream mixture together with onions, potatoes, and cheese.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (stirring half way through).
  7. Stir casserole once more, sprinkle with shredded cheese and up the oven temp to low broil for about 10 minutes or until the casserole is golden brown.


Now go enjoy some Cracker Barrel hashbrown casserole at home!

I like to use Colby Jack cheese...but it's really personal preference as to what type of cheese you like...many people use Cheddar Jack, Cheddar, Colby, etc.
