Healthy Hash Brown Casserole Recipe –This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Potatoes USA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hello! I have a delicious version of a classic recipe – Hash Brown Casserole to share today. I’m excited to have another potato packed recipe because they’re packed with so much goodness to fuel you up.
Potatoes are a great option for a non-processed carbohydrate that’s gluten free and very versatile. There are so many different types and ways to prepare them – from mashed to fries to potato lasagna – you can eat them as a base or a side to your meal.
Plus it’s a vegetable and has zero fat, sodium or cholesterol. Boom. But it’s also what they do have that makes them great – they’re packed with fiber, vitamin C, B6 and potassium – a skin on potato has more potassium than a banana. Depending on how you cook it – taters can be the base for a great low calorie fiber packed meal.

This recipe is good for everyone – kids, adults, runners, eaters, your dog if it falls on the floor…
I tried it for the first time last year at Bible study and it was so good! A friend brought it to our potluck saying it was super easy to make! I asked her what was in it and she listed off potatoes…. butter… sour cream… cheese… sausage… and I immediately wanted to make it at home but – swap some of the ingredients to make lighter version of this dish.
So I simplified it and packed it with veggies. Done and delicious!
This lighter version of the classic hash brown casserole offers carbs – potatoes, protein – eggs, veggies – bell peppers and onions, cheese – dairy (and if you use sharp cheddar it’s packed with extra flavor).
Simple ingredients & super delicious!
