The Warm Goodness of Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole
Sep 22, 2017
Welcome to fall! The high today, where I am located, is 94 degrees. It is a conflicting time…I have the urge to take out the summer flowers and put in the mums, but when it feels like July that seems odd. I would like to get out my sweaters and boots, but in reality I could wear a sundress. I want to go to a bonfire, and I also feel like jumping in the pool…
That being said, I am ready for fall. I will disregard this extended Indian summer and give you a sure-fire delicious fall casserole recipe that everyone will love (well minus any picky eaters, you know I can never promise that).
One of my main goals with this blog is to give you easy recipes. I never suggest a recipe that has hard to get ingredients, or too many steps. One way I simplified this recipe and cut down time was going the route of a rotisserie chicken rather than cooking and shredding the chicken myself. If you have the time, yes it might be a little bit cheaper, but if you don’t have as much prep time this cuts out an extra twenty minutes of cooking the chicken. I prefer County Market’s “Just Bare” rotisserie chicken and Mr. Dell’s shredded Hash browns.
Here are the main ingredients:
Prepping the casserole is quick:
This is one of my favorite casserole’s to make. Nothing smells as good on a crisp fall evening as a casserole coming out of the oven. This cheesy hash brown chicken casserole is one of the best warm comfort foods to fit that bill.
PICKY EATER ALERT – Some picky eaters are not going to give casserole a try if they do not like things mixed together. When I shredded the chicken I kept the chicken legs for my picky eaters to make an alternative meal. I also added in some chicken tenders from the deli:
Just to keep it honest, I also purchased pumpkin bars and candy corn. The pumpkin bars for dessert and the candy corn for the decorative Halloween bowl on my kitchen table. The candy corn did not stay a decoration for long and was gone by the next day.
This week’s recipe seems like a dress rehearsal for when fall truly hits, almost like Christmas in July. Regardless of the weather, this time of year just calls for pure comfort food. I hope you enjoy this unseasonably warm weather and maybe by next week we will all be pulling out jackets and jeans. Here is the recipe:
