I am in denial that it’s already mid-April. Where in heavens name, did the last few months go?! It’s just about time to celebrate Easter!

I am so excited for Easter this year because my two youngest are actually going to understand what’s going on. They’re 3 & 4 now and are totally into dying Easter eggs, Easter egg hunts, the Easter bunny, you name it. I love this age and can’t wait to celebrate with them!

One tradition I’m really excited about, though, is Easter brunch! I always cook a big meal that usually includes ham, homemade rolls, and my Mom’s potato casserole. Everyone always raves about this potato casserole. It’s usually the first thing gone out of the whole brunch menu!

It’s one of those things that’s super easy to make but just tastes so darn delicious. The reason this casserole is so easy is because you don’t actually have to cook any potatoes.

Nope. Just grab a bag of Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes the next time you’re shopping at Walmart. Mix them in (frozen!) with a few other easy ingredients, bake and serve! #OreIdaHashBrown

I grew up eating this potato casserole and now I make it for my family. I’m ALL about easy and I love that I can run to the store and buy a bag of yummy Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes instead of loading up on potatoes, peeling them, cooking them and then shredding them. The hard work is already done for you!

And that means I get to spend more time with my family. Which is super important – especially on Easter! I can’t wait to make this potato casserole for our Easter brunch again this year!

    Stopping over from Bloom Designs. I use this basic same recipe, but with melted butter. Everyone loves it. Maybe I’ll try it with the coconut oil next time! :)

    I usually make Potatoes AuGratin for Easter, from scratch. I’m making your recipe this year. So much easier and looks delicious. Thanks.

    So, I recently found out I have a red meat allergy, which means I can’t eat beef, pork, OR lamb. I’m struggling to find good chicken and fish recipes because I’m actually not much of a chicken fan. I’m thinking this casserole would be perfect with some shredded chicken thrown in! It looks so creamy and delicious! And YAY for Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes for making the potato part so simple and much mess time consuming.
