I love creamy cheese potato casserole but I don’t love all the fat grams and calories that go with it. This Cheesy Potato Casserole is so easy and so delicious.
It’s also a little bit less calories and fat than a lot of other potato casserole dishes.
It’s perfect for a side dish, or breakfast. It is so simple, and oh so yummy.
How far in advance can I make this recipe?
I usually make this recipe and eat it within the same day. However, you can make it in advance. You could easily make it the day before and it would be just fine. We recommend cooking it the same day as you serve it. So you could prepare it in the pan the night before, then cook it right before you plan to eat.
However, I would not make it more than 24 hours in advance. This dish is best when it is served fresh.

Add a little more flavor:
This dish is delicious as is, however, I like to add a little ranch seasoning mix to give it just a little extra flavor. It is so yummy with a little kick of ranch seasoning mix.
Would any potato work for this recipe?
For this recipe, we used frozen hash browns that you get at the store, however, really any potato would work for this recipe. I have never made it using sweet potatoes because I usually use russet potatoes, which are pre – made into hash browns, and found in the freezer section.
I have made this recipe using mini red potatoes and it was absolutely scrumptious. You can also peel the potatoes, or keep the skin on. I like the texture of the skin, so I usually keep it on. But for a fast and delicious method, we recommend using store bought hash browns.
You could also use golden yukon potatoes. My friend makes this recipe and shreds golden yukon potatoes and they are so delicious.
