Cracker Barrel’s Hash Brown Casserole
Friends, this recipe is pure comfort food and let me tell you, it is so easy to make! This particular dish brings me back to my childhood when there were only a handful of Cracker Barrel restaurants around.
We would always stop at one for breakfast for a special treat in Tennessee on the way to visiting my grandparents in Virginia. Don’t you love thinking back to wonderful childhood memories?
We now have a Cracker Barrel right here in my town. It is one of our favorite restaurants to take the kids. There’s just something relaxing about ordering down-home country dishes that truly define the term “comfort food”.
My young daughter calls it “Crackle Barrel”, no matter what you call it this place has some good stick to your ribs food. It truly has become a family favorite for all of my kids right here in our little town.
This year I whipped up this casserole for our Christmas Day brunch. To be honest, this casserole tastes wonderful warmed up as leftovers. Especially during the holiday season when you have leftover turkey or ham, a bit of this leftover is just perfect. Although it disappears fast if my whole crew is around.
You’ll find all sorts of excuses to make this delicious dish. Don’t let the holidays be the only time you enjoy it, make it on a Sunday…the family will love it.
Some tips for making Cracker Barrel’s Hash Brown Casserole:
