Potato Bacon Casserole Recipe

I came up with this recipe when unexpected company arrived and I didn’t have enough lettuce and tomatoes on hand to make a traditional salad. Everyone enjoyed it so much that it became a regular at our table.

  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg

"This meal was pretty ordinary, to be honest. Nothing fantastic about it."

"Made it for the first time last night and the family really seemed to like it. Very easy to assemble, loved the taste. I grated the onion as the grandkids do not like onion chunks. The fresh onion is really a very key ingredient or else it would be bland. It's going in my personal cookbook and will also be a hit at our monthly pot-luck suppers."

"Instead of hash browns, I fried peeled diced red potatoes with onions, garlic and hatch green chilis in light olive oil until crispy. Added a few tablespoons of green chili salsa to my egg mixture with Lawry's seasoned salt. Incorporated some grated parm cheese with sharp cheddar. Layered potatoes, bacon, cheese and poured egg mixture over."

"These were super easy and pretty tasty. Instead of onion, I added 1 t. onion powder. I also used 1 t. regular salt instead of 1/2 t. seasoned salt. The egg and milk combination gave the dish a different texture, but it was very good."

"I love to try new recipes. I will make this again, but I will add a few things to it to spruce up the taste. It was bland with very little taste. But, it was easy and has potential."

"Good recipe. I did add some salt & fresh ground black pepper because that is the way we like our potato dishes seasoned. I also added a little onion & garlic powder because I was short on fresh onion. Super easy to throw together."
