Easy meals for large groups of people can be difficult to find – they’re overly complicated, have hard-to-find ingredients, or come from a box. This easy breakfast potato casserole recipe is a delicious and filling way to bring your favorite comfort food to the brunch table for friends and family. You’ll only need 7 delicious ingredients, including Cabot’s Vermont Sharp Cheddar cheese, tangy Sour Cream, and rich, Salted Butter – as well as about 20 minutes of prep time. You can even prepare this dish the night before, so that you’re ready to pop this healthy potato casserole right into the oven, giving you more time to spend with company!

To make about 8 servings of this cheesy potato casserole, preheat your oven to 350°F. Coat a large baking dish with cooking spray, butter, or oil.

In a large bowl, mix together your hash brown potatoes, sharp cheddar, sour cream, cream of celery soup and onions. Spread the creamy mixture into a prepared baking dish.

In another bowl, toss together cereal or chips and your melted butter, and spread the topping evenly over the potato mixture.

Store in the refrigerator overnight, or bake your casserole immediately for 45 to 55 minutes or until hot and golden on top. Enjoy with family and friends (or save the leftovers!)
