A cheesy and creamy Au Gratin potatoes recipe made with hash browns, cheddar cheese soup and sour cream.
Author:
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1-30 ounce package frozen Ore Ida shredded hash browns
  • 1-10 ounce can of cream of chicken soup
  • 1-10 ounce can of cheddar cheese soup
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 stick of butter (8 ounces or ½ cup)
  • ½ cup sour cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a 9" x 13" glass baking dish, evenly layer the entire package of frozen hash browns.
  3. In the glass bowl for the microwave or using a medium saucepan on the stove, heat both soups (do not add any additional liquid), butter, and onion together until smooth and combined.
  4. Add in the sour cream to the mixture and stir until smooth.
  5. Pour the wet mixture over the hash brown potatoes.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Notes
You can make this two ways: You can place the hash browns in the dish first and then ladle the cheese soup mixture on top. This will create a layered effect, but the soup will not sink to the bottom.

The second way would be instead to combine the cheese mixture with the hash browns before placing in the baking dish. That way it will be mixed all the way through.

Either way this is really good comfort food!
