Cheesy Onion Hashbrown Casserole

Oh So Yummy Cheesy Onion Hashbrown Casserole

 

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Have you ever had Cracker Barrel’s Hashbrown Casserole? I will go there simply because of their hashbrown casserole! Wanting to make it myself, I nailed it the first time because it is just so easy to make! It isn’t quite the same as Cracker Barrel as I use Monterey Jack cheese in mine (although you could easily use cheddar cheese instead to make it like Cracker Barrel’s) but it is just as delicious or maybe even MORE delicious! Maybe I am just partial haha. Hashbrown Casserole I LOVE how I can make it for any meal of the day. It can be the main course for breakfast or a side dish for lunch or dinner. You just HAVE to try it! You won’t want any other hashbrown casserole recipe after you make this so make sure you bookmark it!
