Fully Loaded Hash Brown Casserole is loaded with bacon, sausage, cheese, and delicious shredded potatoes! It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, dinner, or anytime of the day.
At some point we have all either A)made hash brown casserole or B)eaten hash brown casserole. It’s so simple to make, you can’t go wrong, and almost everybody loves it.
I think of hash brown casserole as a dish that can be eaten any meal of the day. It’s delicious, filling, and normally a side dish to something else.
I have to share this recipe that a friend of mine shared with me. She was telling me how she makes her hash brown casserole and I thought it was a great idea, because it basically turns it into the main dish. No need to break out extra dishes for a meat, because in this dish, it’s already there!
We eat it at least once a month, and we always have leftovers for lunch the next day. Since this dish reheats so perfectly, I made a pan of it, and took it with us to Jacksonville, so that we could enjoy one meal at the hotel, to help cut down our costs a little.
I also made this for Christmas this year to go along with our French Toast Casserole. I did this because we usually have a major sugar crash Christmas morning, and this helped with the savory elements.
