  • 4 cups. hashbrown potatoes defrosted
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup green onions sliced
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ tsp. paprika


  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. Defrost potatoes overnight in the refrigerator or under warm running water.
  • In a large bowl combine the potatoes, sour cream, sliced green onions, and ¾ cup shredded cheese. Stir to thoroughly combine. 
  • Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch pyrex casserole. Top with remaining shredded cheese and sprinkle paprika on top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until potatoes are tender and bubbling.


  • This potato side dish goes with just about anything! I love to serve it with this Eye of Round Roast with Herb Infused Oil or with this Grilled Rib Eye with Salsa Verde.
  • It also makes a great addition to a brunch buffet!
  • You can assemble this hashbrown potato recipe up to a day in advance and refrigerate it. 
  • I think it tastes best right out of the oven, but it also makes terrific leftovers.
  • Although you could use pre-shredded cheese - don't! The anti-caking agent they add to pre-shredded cheese dries the cheese out a bit and so it doesn't melt as well- and this casserole is all about that melted cheese!
  • Also, use full-fat sour cream. Low fat sour cream gives the potatoes a gritty taste which is definitely not what you want!
  • The recipe doubles or triples perfectly so it's great for serving a crowd!
