 3 Ingredient Hashbrown Casserole recipe from callmepmc.com yes, just three ingredients to hashbrown heaven!

What I like about cooking the most is you get to control everything about it.
(Not that I’m a control freak or anything.)
Like more kick? Add more spice
Like more cheese? Add more cheese.
Don’t like butter (what the hell’s wrong with you?!)? ah, Don’t add butter!
I developed this recipe because I’m not a big fan of cream-of-anything soup.
Too much sodium!
And too much sodium means puffy a.m. eyes!
Not cool!
I thought about calling it Non-puffy-eyes Hash Brown Casserole;
it just didn’t have a good ring to it….

  1. Can this be made the day before and if so do I cook it and reheat or just cook it in the morning?

    1. YOu can do either. I’d probably assemble the night before and cook in the morning. Add 10 to 15 minutes to the cooking time to account for it being cold.

  2. 5 stars
    I have made this recipe so many times I can’t even count. I have made for large crowds, for my family on weekends, and on holidays. It NEVER dissapoints. We love it. I’ll be making it again this week.

  3. 5 stars
    Has anyone tried doubling the recipe? Would I double the cream or would that get too soupy?

    1. 5 stars
      I have quadrupled this recipe many times and it always comes out great. Just watch your timing as it usually needs to cook a little longer.

  4. All I have is cream of mushroom and cream of chicken can I then in place of the cream

  5. 5 stars
    Made this yesterday to RAVE reviews! This is the tastiest, yet most simple recipe ever. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

  6. 5 stars
    I love how this recipe doesn’t use cream of whatever! Thank you so much for this recipe! It turned out perfect, and it was a tasty side dish!

  7. Can’t wait to try this! I’m making it today and my hash browns were in the fridge overnight so they aren’t frozen. Is that okay?

      1. Thanks Paula, I figured, but just wanted to check so I wouldn’t end up with something mushy.

      2. Hi,
        Can I use evaporated milk? I’m staying in today and do not want to go to the store for heavy cream.
