  • 30 ounce bag hash browns (or country style shredded potatoes or cubed potatoes, thawed)
  • 1 bunch green onions (chopped, about 1/4 cup)
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 10.5 ounce can cream of chicken (or celery soup)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (plus 2 Tablespoons)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers (or cornflakes, potato chips or panko crumbs, optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and butter a 9×13" baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine potatoes, green onions, sour cream, cream of chicken, salt, pepper, 1/4 cup melted butter and 1 cup of cheese. Stir until combined. Then spread into the baking dish.
  • Top with remaining shredded cheese and crushed Ritz crackers. Drizzle remaining 2 Tablespoons of melted butter on top. 
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling hot. If using cubed potatoes instead of shredded hash browns, bake for about 40 minutes. 
  • Enjoy! 



To lighten up the cheesy potatoes, omit the cream of chicken soup, crushed Ritz and extra butter. Use light sour cream and less cheese.
