Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole
This post is sponsored by my great friends at Borden® Cheese, but the thoughts and opinions here are all my own – just as always.
Hash Brown Casserole is a holiday staple on our table. I can’t remember a Thanksgiving or Christmas where this dish wasn’t included. Actually, that’s not 100% true. I can remember when it wasn’t included, because prior to my wife joining our family gatherings, I only knew hash brown casserole as the stuff that you got at Cracker Barrel. Seriously. For whatever reason, the dish that many families rarely celebrate holidays without, had just never made it to the table in our family. Heather made it that first year and it’s been a part of the menu ever since. This cheesy perfection is just about as important to the menu as turkey is to Thanksgiving.
I get to thank my sweet wife for quite a few culinary contributions, actually. Pecan Chewies, Kentucky Pecan Pie, and this amazing casserole all came to the family by way of her.
This humble casserole is so easy, but so tasty. It’s only made better by using new Borden® Cheese Thick Cut Shreds. Y’all know how much of a Borden® Cheese fan I am. Not only is it crafted with high-quality wholesome ingredients and is the product of more than 8,000 family farms across the country, but the new Thick Cut Shreds are the perfect casserole complement. And I love me some casseroles. This cheese doesn’t get lost in the ingredients like finely shredded cheese does. This stuff melts beautifully, but you know it’s in there. You’ll get the perfect bite of cheese and endless cheesy-pull perfection. I’m rarely wowed by new products, but this is probably my new favorite product in quite a while. I know I’m railing on about cheese, but I just really like this stuff.
And while we often say dishes like this Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole make the holidays, the truth is that the holidays just wouldn’t be the same if we weren’t surrounded by our family and friends. They’re the most important part of the season.
That’s why my friends at Borden® Cheese are helping folks across the country get home for the holidays by awarding more than $100,000 in prizes to go towards travel fare.
