I made this but used "French's" crispy fried onions on top instead of the chex cereal

Rice Chex with potatoes? Hmmm, this sounds interesting and super rich and flavorful! I've heard of using corn flakes for baking but never rice Chex. I'm guessing it would give it a nicer texture and probably a slightly nutty flavor...and, if you wanted to make it a little heartier you can always throw some cubed chicken into the mix to compliment the chicken soup and cheddar.

Tried this recipe? What did you think?

Hash browns are not available in South Africa so we made our own. Also I never use soup as a sauce (just do not like the taste) so we used some sour cream and some home made chicken stock. As a side dish it was very pleasant and I will certainly be making it again.

This looks so good. I would totally take this along to a work potluck or a picnic.

This looks really yummy. Baked hash browns are an easy win on a weekend morning.

Hash browns are not a thing in South Africa so I made them myself and we also do not get Rice Chex so more inventiveness was required but it was definitely worth the effort because we all really enjoyed this Sour Cream Hash Brown Bake. The flavors are very nice (I added a little crushed fresh garlic but that was the only change).

I have made a different variation of this casserole and it's delish. Mine has crushed corn flakes instead of rice cereal. It also has butter, one cup of sour cream, and also only one can of the cream of chicken soup. It's a sure crowd pleaser and it extra nice served with ham and a pineapple stuffing. I also make it in a 9x13.

Bag size of hash browns????

Hi SouthernMaster, I would assume the bag of hash browns is 32 oz. since this is made in a 13 x 9 pan with a lot of sour cream, cheese, and soup. I love hash brown recipes for holiday get- togethers and for a dinner side dish, so I am excited to make this.

Yes, a 32oz bag of frozen, cubed hash browns is correct. Sorry, that wasn't clear -- it's a standard size.

Bag size of hash browns?????
