💭 Angela's Tips & Recipe Notes

  • To quickly thaw your hashbrowns, place them on the counter for 1 hour. If you aren't in a hurry, simply transfer the frozen hashbrowns to the fridge and let them thaw overnight.
  • Drain any moisture that remains from thawing the hashbrowns. For the crispiest results, pat the hash browns dry with paper towels before mixing them with the other ingredients.
  • Make your casserole in advance by combining all the ingredients in a baking dish and covering it with foil. Refrigerate and bake according to directions within 3 days or freeze and bake within 3 months.
  • Storing: Leftover Cracker Barrel hashbrown casserole can be covered and kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat individual portions in the microwave or pop the casserole in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.

Is Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole Vegetarian?

Yes, it can be, just make sure you substitute the cream of chicken soup for cream of cheddar soup!

Is Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole Gluten-Free?

Unfortunately, the cream of chicken soup in this recipe is not gluten-free. However, this can be substituted with heavy cream or sour cream & chicken broth to make a gluten-free alternative! Check out more cream of chicken substitutes to find what works best for you!

Can I Make Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole With Fresh Potatoes?

Yes, you can substitute the frozen hashbrowns with fresh potatoes, but it will require a few extra steps such as shredding the potatoes. Take a look at my homemade hashbrowns recipe to see how to use fresh potatoes to make hashbrowns!
