Bacon Hashbrown Casserole

Truth: I didn't plan on posting my Bacon Hashbrown Casserole recipe. 

I made it last weekend for a brunch get together with girlfriends and no one was counting calories that morning. Which is a good thing, because let's be honest - there isn't anything remotely healthy about this one.

But, after a few requests for the recipe, I decided to share the love. Because who am I to deny others the delicious, fatty, cheesiness of this dish? ;) 



Bacon Hashbrown Casserole

1 32oz bag frozen hashbrowns, cubed or shredded
1 cup onion, diced
1 can condensed cream of celery soup
8oz sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup crushed chips, crackers or cornflakes
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the hashbrowns, onion, soup, yogurt, cheese, cooked bacon crumbles, garlic powder, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the crushed chips/crackers/cornflakes and melted butter.

Add the hashbrown mixture to a 9x13 casserole dish. Top with the chips/crackers/cornflakes. Bake for 45-50 minutes.

Tell me: What is your favorite breakfast/brunch food?

  3. So there is something terribly wrong with me because I hate bacon. (I know, I know.) But I could definitely do this recipe without the bacon. Hashbrowns = GOOD. Cheese = GOOOOOOOOD. :)

    1. For sure the bacon is optional - my mom makes the casserole without and it is still delicious because of all the cheese :)

  4. Oh my goodness, Sun. This looks amazing :) My mom makes something similar, only it doesn't have bacon or the chips/crackers for our Christmas brunch, and I think it has cream of chicken in it, but I'm not sure. But this with the bacon and that crunch...extra yum! The past couple of years I've gotten more into egg dishes for breakfast, but I would be lying if I said one of my favorite parts of a quiche wasn't the pie crust haha. I just love breads and pastries so much! :)

  5. I love breakfast casseroles but I admit I NEVER make them. I'm really the only person in my family who eats eggs. This sounds good! Not a huge bacon fan but I bet you could do this with sausage crumbles...or better yet spicy sausage crumbles!

    1. Sausage crumbles would be a delightful addition! I think I'll have to give that a try next time :)

  7. As a non-meat eater, I would make this recipe without the bacon - and it looks amazing!

    My favourite breakfast is homemade by my partner (who is Japanese) - miso soup, rice, and dashi-maki tamago (rolled omelette with fish stock and sweet rice wine) - SO yummy!

    I should pay more attention to nutrition as part of training...but I'm a bit lazy on that side of things! :-)
