Did you noticed that there are certain things that you order at your favorite restaurants, each and every time you visit without fail.
Cracker Barrel is one of my favorite restaurants to stop at when i have to go for dinner or lunch or breakfast… :) There’s something so comforting about their Southern style food, and one of these “things” for me is Cracker Barrel’s Hashbrown Casserole – creamy, rich, easy and cheesy.

Now, I’ve tried many many many versions of Cracker Barrel’s hashbrown casserole BUT none of them ever quite made the cut. There was always something different….too much sour cream, not enough cheese, low flavor, soggy potatoes, etc.  And I must say that this recipe is probably as close as I’ll ever come to the original Cracker Barrel hashbrown casserole recipe.

Leftovers ?

In fact,  I’ve consistently started doubling this recipe for my family hoping for leftovers, but, the more I make, the more is eaten. If I want any the next day (because they are just as good heated up), I have to hide them. Of course, a few minutes later, mine story ends as the casserole dish was empty. Hopefully, I managed to take a couple of shots to show you.

    Instead of cream of chicken soup, try it with cream of onion (or cream of celery) soup for an extra punch of onion flavor. You can’t really taste the chicken, but you can taste the onion. So good.

    I have a daughter who is a vegetarian , so i used cream of potato soup instead of cream of chicken and before adding it to the recipe i mashed the potatoes first. It was just as good
