New Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole

New Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole

That's right! There's a new recipe in town, so say good-bye to that tired old recipe! Was that statement too cheesy? Well, so is this hash brown casserole. But what's 'new' is the addition of smoked ham and green bell peppers! So if you're a fan of the traditional Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole I know you'll love my new version! And if you've never tried a hashbrown casserole, here is your chance to try one with more flavor than just potatoes and cheese! This is a perfect side dish to eggs or even meat! This doesn't have to only be served for breakfast!

30 0z. bag frozen Ore-Ida brand hashbrown potatoes, thawed
1 can condensed creamy cheddar soup
16 oz. sour cream - I used fat free
1/4 lb. deli sliced Virginia ham, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease a 12"x 9" casserole dish.
Mix all the above ingredients together in the casserole dish and
evenly spread to cover the bottom of the entire dish.
Bake on center rack uncovered for 45-50 minutes or until nicely browned.
Serve warm.
Serves 9-12 people

I used Ore-Ida brand hashbrown potatoes for this recipe because you just can't go wrong with Ore-Ida products! I've been a fan of Ore-Ida for as long as I can remember! Find where to purchase this brand near you with their store locator.


  1. Ive used cream of mushroom soup and a combination of cheeses. Also added roasted butternut squash. The basic recipe is a great blank canvas to let your imagination run wild!

    1. Hi Jack! Yes, it sure is a blank canvas! I love your spin on it also! Thank you so much for mentioning it! =D

  2. Wonder if it would be just as good with a real onion instead of onion powder and leave out the kosher salt

    1. Oh yes, real onion would be fine. But I wouldn't leave out the salt because it will be very bland. I hope you'll try it! =D

  3. Oh yes ma'am I sure am :)
