    Way better than Cracker Barrel!I used the country style hash browns. Will make again with a little more cheese.

    Turned out great, I used bacon grease in the pan and left the onions out.

    It was good, but needed a little something to wet it before baking so I added about 1/4 cup of yogurt. Also needed a bit more salt for serving. Next time I'd cut down on the butter by about a half stick. I'll try it again with further modifications.

    Really good!!! I did not have colby so I used cheddar cheese but next time I make I will definitely try it with colby but it was still really good with the cheddar too

    Great! I have made it multiple times. Used onion powder instead of diced onion.

    It had a good taste to it but It was super greasy Might be better if you cut down the amount of butter used

    It was a very easy recipe to make. And the only changes I made were I added cream cheese and diced bell peppers. Everyone loved it!

    Made it for my family for our annual back to school “breakfast for dinner” meal and it was a big hit. My husband said it was definitely better than Cracker Barrel’s! Accurate name!! And it couldn’t have been easier!

    This recipe is perfect! Sooooooo good!
    This was delicious. Little hard to mix up. Use a very large bowl. Well worth it. Baked at 375.

    Turned out really well. It was slightly oily/greasy, but I will alter the butter amount, or add extra hash browns next time. Will definitely make it again.

    Amazing! I love Cracker Barrel’s hashbrown Casserole and this tastes the same if not better. 10/10 would do again!

    Turned out great! I may let the potatoes thaw for a bit. Also, mixing frozen potatoes by hand was different. I would recommend a mixer (I have a kitchenaid and mixed on 1 until fully mixed). Halfed the onion because it was large. Potatoes were not as soft as I would personally like, so next time I may thaw (recipe didn’t say thaw and if so, I overlooked it). Flavor was spot on and would just make adjustments based on personal taste. If you are looking for something quick and maybe your first time taking a go at Hash-brown casserole, I would recommend this recipe as it is first. Then tweak for your personal preference.
