Hamburger Hash Brown Casserole is a family-friendly, quick to assemble dinner recipe perfect for busy weeknights. Ground beef is layered with hash browns and cheese and baked to perfection in this easy recipe.


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 20 ounce bag frozen shredded hash browns
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
  • salt & pepper (optional)
  • green onion for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium skillet, brown ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain.
  3. Layer meat in the bottom of a 9 by 13″ casserole dish.
  4. In a large bowl combine hash browns, milk, soup, butter, and 1 1/2 cups cheese. Mix well.
  5. Pour hash brown mixture over the ground beef and spread to make an even layer.
  6. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  7. Bake for 1 hour, serve garnished with chopped green onion if desired.


  • feel free to salt & pepper your ground beef, or even add a seasoning salt such as Lawry’s if you want to amp up the flavor
  • use a BIG bowl for mixing the hash brown mixture, it’s a lot of ingredients and can make a mess if you use too small a bowl, I use my largest mixing bowl
