Cheesy Potato Casserole

Cheesy potato casserole is one of those dishes that is hard to put down once you take a bite. The side dish is full of great flavor and it’s the perfect dish for any dinner or holiday meal.

A Delicious Potato Bake

The delicious potato bake recipe came from my friend Beth. Our sons met years ago in kindergarten and Beth and I have been friends ever since.

Beth loves to entertain and is known for always cooking the best food. She can cook small meals or meals for 30 people and they turn out amazing every time. Her recipes never disappoint.

So, when she shared this recipe with me, I was super excited to share it with all of you.

A Simple and Flavorful Dish

The potato casserole recipe is not only simple to make, but jam-packed full of flavor. After I took one bite, I knew this was something we were going to eat over and over again.

Beth makes this dish for the holidays and it’s a big hit, and once you taste it, you’ll understand why.

This is also a dish that can be made the day before and refrigerated until ready to cook, which makes your day a little easier if you’re planning to bake a lot on the following day.

The potatoes will be ready to cook and you’ll be able to just pop it into the oven.

What Ingredients Do I Need To Make the Cubed Potatoes?

  • Frozen southern style hashbrown potatoes (diced)
  • Cream of potato soup
  • Shredded mozzarella
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper

Full printable recipe with measurements and instructions listed at the bottom of the post in the recipe card.

How Do I Make the Cubed Cheesy Potatoes?

  2. Next, add 1-1/2 cups of mozzarella, 1-1/2 cups of cheddar cheese, and the parmesan cheese to the bowl. Reserve the rest of the cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Sprinkle the salt and pepper on top and mix everything well.
  4. Add the hashbrown potatoes to the bowl and mix until covered.

When Beth shared this recipe with me I was intrigued by adding potato soup to a potato dish.

And, trust me, you will love it, because the soup adds so much flavor to this dish.

Cover the dish with tinfoil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the tinfoil and bake another 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

If the potatoes are frozen cook for the entire 60 minutes, but if the potatoes are thawed, only cook for 30-40 minutes. Be sure to remove the tinfoil halfway through.

I made this recipe exactly as written. I put it in my casserole crockpot for a work birthday luncheon and it was delicious. I have had to print it out for the employees as they want to make it for their Thanksgiving dinners. There was not even a spoon full left over.
