Oh my gosh! These sound so delicious! I am a fiend for hashbrowns, so I just know that I am going to love this recipe. I bet that they would be great served along with a roast or maybe some chicken. Has anyone tried swapping out the cream of chicken soup with a different type? I usually have cream of mushroom in my cupboard. Do you think that it would work just as well?

i love these recipes thanks soo much!!!

How many servings? I added a Pound of Cooked Jimmy Dean Sausage, and my Husband and I would have loved to eat the whole thing. However I did omit the sour cream and cornflakes. Just sprinkled Paprika on top.. just had a salad with it.

While this recipe would be tasty as written, I would urge everyone who uses cans of "cream of" whatever to read the ingredients-you might change your mind on using it. I make a homeade version of this recipe only omitting the cream soup and making a homeade sauce with a bit of chicken base added. Most times I will add chopped broccoli to the dish as is a great side dish for any meat.

JimkKC222: Thank you pointing out the confusing description of the soup amount. We appreciate your comment and it's now been fixed. Thanks! Blair, editor at

Please note the Ingredients! It says 1 oz can, cream of chicken soup? That needs to be changed to 10 1/2 oz can.

Member2756418 Thanks for your question. It looks like another reader helped you out. Thanks for being a resource to each other, that's great! aje127 Thanks for helping another reader out! GrammaS20 There might be some gluten free soup options out there. Also, you could try a combination of evaporated skim milk and chicken stock (not broth, as it's too thin). We also have an extensive selection of gluten-free recipes on our sister site, I hope this helps! Thanks! Blair, editor at

1# Sour Cream + 16 oz and/or 2 Cups. My question is: if you use the sour cream would you have to use the cream of chicken soup? We have a family member who is gluten intolerant & cream of chick soup contains wheat flour (gluten).

16 oz = 1 pound

how much sour cream is in a pound?????

Used to make this at Cracker Barrel and did not use sour cream or cornflakes. Do not thaw hash browns. Break up frozen hash brown potoes in mixing bowl, and mix all ingredients together using electric mixer ( add salt and pepper). Place mixture in greased baking dish or pan. Bake at 350 for one hour or until crispy on top (30 min. if using convection oven at that temp). This will keep in the refrigerater for 48 hrs covered so it can be made in advance and won't take as long to bake. If hash browns are thawed, tends to make it really mushy.
