Cracker Barrel took hash browns to a whole new level. The restaurant serves up hash browns that are cheesy, creamy and served in a casserole, and everything’s better in casserole form, isn’t it?
But, now that copycat recipes exist, you don’t have to go to Cracker Barrel just to get a taste of this deliciousness. Instead, you can make up a batch at home whenever the craving hits.
One of the best parts about this dish is that it’s great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can serve it alongside sausage and eggs, use it as a landing pad for sauteed veggies or pair it with a meat to create an incredible dinnertime entree.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself making this quite a bit. It’s sure to become a family favorite just as quickly as Cracker Barrel became the only place your kids wanted to eat out.
