The holiday rush is over, but that doesn’t mean my life has slowed down. Truthfully, the week between Christmas and New Year’s is busier for me than the pre-holiday craziness. That’s mainly because Brian and I don’t exchange gifts or have company to serve a meal to at our home, so we’re able to sit back and enjoy the holidays a bit more.

After the holiday is over, though, I start my end of the year bookkeeping and goal planning for the new year.  Right about now is when things get a bit crazy for me, because I realize that I have less than 2 weeks to get “my house in order”.  I simply don’t have time to mess around in the kitchen, so I rely on casseroles like this easy hashbrown casserole recipe.

Easy Hashbrown Casserole Recipe Shortcuts

There are a few make-ahead shortcuts that I use when I’m busy. Saving time in the kitchen with fun and easy shortcuts is what I’m all about.

That’s why I used precooked ham and frozen veggies for the easy hashbrown casserole recipe. You don’t even need to thaw them out first!

Sure, I could have pulled out my mandoline slicer or box grater and shredded up the potatoes myself, but to use fresh potatoes in a casserole like this would have also required me to blanch them first, and I’m just too busy for that business right now.

  1. This casserole looks totally nom-nom, Becca! And with all of the time I’ll save making it, I’m pretty sure I can get my house in order. Or I could sit on the couch and watch football. Hmmm…I might have to go for the latter one. 🙂

    1. Hi Beth,
      I don’t cover the casserole unless it’s starting to look too brown. You can check it after 30 minutes or so. I like the top to get crispy.

    1. Hi Anne!
      To freeze the baked hashbrown casserole, just refrigerate it after cooking. After it is cool, wrap it in a layer of plastic wrap and then a layer of aluminum foil. To reheat, set your oven to 375 degrees F and bake the covered casserole in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until it is warmed through.

    1. I haven’t tried mixed vegetables, but truthfully, I can’t think of a single reason why you couldn’t use them!

        1. Hmm, that’s a good question. You can certainly try it! I’m hesitant to say that it will work for sure, though. My concern is that the frozen hashbrowns won’t have enough time to get warm before the rest of the casserole is finished cooking. If you decide to give it a go, I think I would keep the oven at 375 Fahrenheit, just as you would for a whole casserole. Check them after 20 minutes and see how they’re looking. Adjust the oven to 350 if you think they’re cooking too quickly and maybe consider covering the muffin tin with some aluminum foil. Please let me know how it goes!

    2. What would you do if you shredded fresh potatoes yourself. You mentioned you would have to blanch them? Many thanks for your help

      1. Yes you will want to blanch them first. Helped with cooking and also that excess starch that can make the casserole gummy.

    Creamy, cheesy, and perfect! I didn’t have the right soup, but broccoli cheddar soup was an exceptional substitute. This will make my list of monthly meals at least!

  3. 5 stars
    I was looking for something to do with left over Han that didn’t call for pasta. I like that we use yogurt rather than cream cheese. I used the frozen broccoli florets, but I chopped them up a bit as I wanted them spread more consistently. I couldn’t find low sodium cream of potato soup, so I completely omitted salt from the recipe. I found it easier to mix the soup, cheeses, yogurt and spices in one bowl, diced ham, potatoes and broccoli in another then combine. Next time I may try to find the frozen potatoes with red or green peppers. I love this dish, thank you!
