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!

Homemade Fish Tacos

homemade fish tacos

A recipe for homemade fish tacos using fresh fish, cilantro lime rice, Chipotle Aoli and topped with Pico de Gallo. Serve fish tacos for a weekend dinner.

This is one of my family’s favorite recipes! It came about from a dish we had at a local brewery and restaurant and we loved it so much we decided to re-create it at home. Finding recipes online yielded hit and miss results, so this is our creation after making this recipe about a dozen times.

The entire meal will take you about 2 hours start to finish, so this is a good one for the weekend when you have more time to shop for ingredients and prepare it.


This is a great date night recipe and is good if you have two cooks in the kitchen as there is a lot of prep work, but the end result is totally worth it! My husband and I love cooking together in the kitchen. Do enjoy!

Asparagus Casserole Recipe

asparagus casserole recipe

A unique asparagus casserole recipe made from fresh asparagus, milk, cheese, hard cooked eggs, and buttered bread crumbs. Serve as a vegetable side dish. It is baked in the oven and has a nice creamy sauce when it is finished baking.

Other than the usual steamed asparagus, sometimes it can be difficult to come up with creative recipes for using up a bunch of asparagus you may have purchased or that is growing in your garden.

This recipe is different because it combines the fresh vegetable with the crunch of buttered bread crumbs and a creamy cheese sauce.


Serve this vegetable casserole in the spring when asparagus is in season for a weekend breakfast or brunch recipe.

This vegetable recipe is a bit lighter than the traditional brunch fare and just the thing to serve for a brunch menu, especially when the asparagus is plentiful and fresh.
