My Aunt Nellie still makes me her signature casserole when I come to visit. This hash brown casserole recipe is a little taste of heaven. Save the leftovers and freeze them for another dinner or lunch. You might think the beef stock is an odd ingredient to use in this casserole. However, you don't actually taste it in the finished product; it is used to make the casserole creamier. You could use chicken stock in its place. Try Aunt Nellie's Hash Brown Casserole today.
This hash brown casserole recipe is simple to make. After mixing the ingredients together, cook the hash brown mixture in a skillet and then bake it in the oven.

This looks so good! I would love to serve this as a holiday side dish or maybe even as a savory breakfast dish. Does anyone eat this for breakfast?

Oh yes, I do love hash brown casseroles! I serve them on holidays and sometimes as a dinner on weeknights. Most of my recipes have some kind of meat, but I will love this recipe to serve as a side dish. I can just taste the potatoes and cheese. YUM!
