"From www.TopSecretRecipes.com. A few years ago I was looking for the real deal and found a website that I had to pay $2.50 to download a copy of the famous casserole's recipe. I still use this recipe til this day and have friends ask for it and receive kudos every time I make it."
Serving Size: 1 (139 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This is absolutely wonderful! It's been too long since I've had Cracker Barrel's potatoes to say how close of a copy this recipe is, but I really don't care. It's better than any other hash brown casserole that I've tried; the beef broth makes a difference. I did used diced instead of shredded hashbrowns."
"This is so good! I don't care if the recipe is different than the real one, this tastes amazingly close and I enjoy it (made exactly as stated) each time we have it for breakfast! PS DH says he could eat a whole casserole all by himself! :)"
"This is by FAR the best recipe on RecipeZaar for the Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole. I have tried other recipes that call for the canned soups and we think they taste NOTHING like the real thing. My husband is a Cracker Barrel freak so we eat there often and this recipe is DEFINATELY the closest! Wonderful flavor, easy to make and leaves everyone satisfied and happy!! THANKS for the great recipe!!"
"This is as close as it gets. Thanks for a great recipe. Uses this as a side to grilled steak. Husband loved it!!!! Other recipes added canned soups which I don't believe is there. I added a dash of allspice to the recipe. YUMMY!!!!!"
"not even close. I used to work at cracker barrel and know the recipe by heart."
"I don't know how close this is to the real thing, but I can say that it's really yummy! The beef broth gives it a deeper flavor than most similar casseroles. While it's not quite as creamy as some others, it's still cheesey and tasty. This is a keeper. Thanx!"
"This recipe is perfect! It tasted just like the restaurant version, if not better! I am preparing a double batch today to cook half and freeze half. Thanks for the great recipe!!! **Oh, and I used chicken stock instead of beef broth and still delish!"
"i fixed this with hamburger steak w/ mushroom and onion gravy and green beans, my boyfriend almost ate the whole casserole!! i'm cooking this at least once a week!! GGGREAT!!!! (i also want to make more for breakfast, it was that good, i want to have it again and again!!)"
"This recipe is awesome! I had everything I needed on hand except for colby cheese. I used chedder instead, and it was still great. I make sure I have colby on hand all the time now. Thanks for sharing!"
"Just a wonderful recipe we often make this for any meal from breakfast to supper. I could eat this until I'm forced to take a nap from all of the comforting starchy carbs :-)"
