I love an easy recipe and these Party Potatoes fit the bill to a tee. I might even dare say I like them better than mashed potatoes. To make them, it’s literally dumping all the ingredients into a bowl, mixing it up and then baking. You won’t find an easier potato side dish!

You don’t even need to buy potatoes. Well, the regular potatoes you find in the produce section, anyways. This simple side is made with frozen hash browns. Thaw those babies out in the fridge and you are good to go to make this recipe.

Matty loved them so much that he called his parents to come over to try them out. They really enjoyed them, too. I’m thinking the next time I can host a family gathering, this recipe is going on the menu. It’s perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. No lumpy potatoes here!

Ingredients

You don’t need any fancy ingredients either. You might even have a lot of these ingredients in your fridge, freezer and pantry.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 lb bag of frozen hash browns – thaw them out in the fridge for a few hours before you use them in the recipe
  • Chopped onion
  • Melted butter
  • Shredded cheddar cheese – we like old cheddar in our house!
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup – don’t add any water. 
  • Sour cream 
  • Onion salt
  • Pepper
  • chopped fresh chives – you could also use chopped green onion if you don’t have chives

How to Make

You’ll make this recipe once and always remember it. It’s super easy! The printable recipe card is at the bottom of the post if you want to print it out for later.

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 350F. 
  2. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir to combine. Spread the mixture in a 9×13 baking dish.
  3. Bake for 1 hour, uncovered.
  4. Turn the oven to broil on low. Broil for 1 minute or until the top starts to brown. Make sure to watch it because it will burn quickly! I like to do this so it has a nice golden top. You could skip this step if you want.
  5. Remove from oven and serve hot.

If you have any leftover chives, you could add them to the top as well for extra garnish and flavor. Yum!

Yes! If you want to make it ahead, feel free. Prepare everything up until the point that the casserole goes into the oven. Make the night before if you need to and refrigerate. Then, pop it in the oven when you’re making dinner.
