Hash Brown Casserole is great breakfast or brunch dish made with hash browns, onions, bacon and cheese! A delicious make ahead dish everyone will love!


  • 6 center-cut bacon slices , cut into strips
  • 3 tablespoons onion , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 26 ounces hash brown potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons scallions , chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese , shredded and divided
  • Cooking Spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet heat bacon strips over medium-high heat. Saute until nearly done, then add onion and garlic. Cook for an additional 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove bacon bits while reserving bacon fat.
  3. Add hash brown potatoes directly to hot bacon fat. Allow hash browns to brown on side before flipping, ultimately evenly browning all potatoes. If the skillet gets overly dry add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Do not add too much or else the potatoes could get mushy. Frozen will take longer than fresh. 

  4. In a large mixing bowl combine scallions, sour cream, half and half, fine sea salt, ground black pepper and 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese. Add browned hash brown potatoes and bacon to the mixture and mix.

  5. Coat a casserole dish with cooking spray and transfer the hash brown mixture over.

  6. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes. Top with additional 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and return to oven until cheese has melted, approximately 5 minutes. 

  7. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.
