20 Best Potato Casserole Recipes

If Samwise Gamgee had a food blog, these potato casserole recipes would be on the front page.

After all, potatoes are as close to perfect as food can get, and you don’t have to be a hungry Hobbit to enjoy them.

20 Best Potato Casserole Recipes featuring scalloped potatoes with green beans and crunchy Panko crust

As Samwise says, you can “boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew.”

You can also make mouthwatering potato casseroles in a flash. We’re talking cheesy, garlicky, bacon-loaded meals, and more.

So, if you want something filling and delicious, these potato casserole recipes are perfect for second breakfast, elevenses, supper, and beyond.

Hearty Potato Casseroles for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

1. Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

If you need something creamy and cheesy, these scalloped potatoes are just the thing.

The thinly sliced potatoes are tender, and the white cheddar sauce is fantastic.

Add in a buttery topping, fresh, diced onions, and smoky cubes of ham, and you’ll have a complete meal that everyone will love.

2. Bacon, Potato, and Egg Casserole

Bacon, potato, and eggs are an excellent choice if you like to start your mornings with something filling and full of flavor.

Though this breakfast casserole takes a little over an hour to make., it’s so worth it once you take that first bite.

Plus, you can make it the night before and simply reheat it the next day. In fact, I’d argue it tastes even better this way as all the flavors have time to sink in. 

3. Cheesy Bacon Potato Casserole

Believe it or not, you can whip up this cheesy, savory side dish with fewer than ten ingredients. 

All you’ll need are frozen hash browns, bacon, cream of chicken soup, shredded cheddar, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, butter, and parsley. 

It’s creamy and fluffy, and the bacon adds a bit of crunchy saltiness that rounds out the whole dish. 

4. Mashed Potatoes and Beef Casserole (Pastelón de Papa)

Check out this recipe if you need an all-in-one dinner option that combines protein, starches, and veggies. It’s a genuine “meat and potatoes” meal and then some!

There’s also cheese, pepper, onions, plenty of herbs and spices, and more. It’s one of those casseroles that can feed the whole family by itself – no side dishes needed.

5. Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potato Casserole

This casserole takes garlic mashed potatoes, which are already this close to perfect, to a whole new level of deliciousness. 

Adding parmesan to the potatoes and baking them gives them a delightfully crispy, cheesy topping that knocks them out of the park. 

If you need a new way to jazz up an old favorite for the holidays, give this one a try. 

6. Potatoes Au Gratin

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the crunchy edges, tender centers, and creamy sauce of au gratin potatoes.

And when you make them from scratch, they’re even better. 

Plus, making them yourself allows you to add a bit of Gruyère in with the cheddar, for a wonderfully smokey finish.

7. Lighthouse Inn Potatoes Copycat Recipe

If you’ve never had the chance to visit the Lighthouse Inn and try their award-winning potatoes, that’s okay!

That just means you’ll get to experience them for the first time with this recipe. 

The only thing you really need to know about this recipe is that it combines butter, Panko breadcrumbs, and parmesan cheese. 

Of course, there are other ingredients, but those three things never taste bad together.

So, if you’re looking for a new potato casserole recipe, give this one a try. You won’t regret it. 

8. Hash Brown Chicken Casserole

Between the cheesy chicken filling and the crunchy Corn Flakes topping, this casserole has a lot going on. It’s herby, savory, and features plenty of veggies, as well. 

If you need to use up a bunch of random stuff in your kitchen – a half box of Corn Flakes, an ancient bag of frozen mixed veggies, and some leftover chicken, for example – you’ll love this recipe.

Of course, it will taste just as good with fresh veggies chopped in the mix.

9. Broccoli Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes

This recipe takes the much-loved cheddar scalloped potatoes and adds two cups of broccoli florets. 

It’s like the perfect combination of broccoli and cheese soup with scalloped potatoes.

Not to mention it’s one of the easiest possible ways to get your kids to eat more veggies. 

10. Scalloped Potatoes, Ham & Corn Bake

If you prefer ham and corn to broccoli, this scalloped potatoes recipe might be more to your tastes. 

With its generous measure of Colby and Monterey Jack cheeses, it’s a cheesy, gooey delight, and the juicy chunks of ham and sweet corn kernels make it even better. 

11. Ham, Cheese, and Potato Casserole

It’s hard to believe that something made with only eight ingredients could be so unbelievably decadent, but this ham, cheese, and potato casserole certainly is. 

It’s down-home, Southern-style cooking at its finest. 

To make it, you’ll combine butter, shallots, ham, garlic, potatoes, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and your choice of either fontina, comté, Swiss, or Gruyère cheese. 

It is seriously cheesy – probably one of the cheesiest casseroles on the list. Every bite is better than the last.

It may not be good for your diet, but your taste buds will love it.

12. Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

This recipe is pretty standard in terms of breakfast casseroles, so you shouldn’t be surprised to see hash browns, onions, sausage, cheese, and peppers on the ingredient list. 

It takes only 20 minutes (or less) to prepare; then, you’ll simply pop it in the oven and let it bake. It’s a hearty, somewhat healthy way to start your day.

13. Sweet Potato Casserole

What list of potato casserole recipes is complete without at least one sweet potato casserole?

Sweet, spiced, and wonderfully dreamy, this treat is a holiday favorite in homes throughout the country. 

It gives you the perfect smooth and silky filling with a sweet and crunchy pecan streusel topping.

If you want to add mini marshmallows, you can, but I think this recipe is pretty perfect as written.

14. Farmer’s Casserole

Farmer’s casserole is another filling breakfast similar to the hash brown casserole above. The primary difference is that you’ll add eggs to this one.

It also calls for ham instead of sausage, but feel free to use whatever breakfast meat you like best. 

Homemade Hash Brown Casserole

15. Cracker Barrel Hashbrown Casserole

If your favorite hash brown casserole is the one served at Cracker Barrel, you’re in luck. I have a copycat recipe for that one, too! 

This cheesy, seven-ingredient casserole is incredibly simple to make. There are only three steps in the recipe, and you can have it on the table in less than an hour. 

16. Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

One of the questions everyone seems to have after Thanksgiving is, “What are we going to do with all of these leftovers?!” In my family, we usually turn them into a truly tasty casserole. 

You can play around with this recipe however you like, but as long as you have leftover turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, you can make it work. 

It’s sagey, cheesy, and tastes like all your favorite parts of Thanksgiving. Top it with cranberry sauce for the full effect. 

17. The Pioneer Woman’s Twice-Baked Potato Casserole

Wow the crowd with this recipe for twice-baked potato casserole! All it takes are ten simple kitchen staples and about 90 minutes. 

This recipe combines all your favorite baked potato ingredients – bacon, cheese, green onions, sour cream, etc. – for one incredible side dish that might upstage the main course.

18. Easy Cheesy Potatoes Recipe

Say it with me: Easy. Cheesy. Potatoes.

I knew before I tried it that I was going to love this dish, and I don’t doubt you will too. 

The inside of the casserole is fantastically cheesy and creamy, and the top features a crunchy Corn Flakes crust. The sour cream and cream of chicken soup also add a nice kick of flavor.

19. Jalapeño Popper Cheesy Potatoes

Jalapeño poppers are always fun and delicious, but they can sometimes be messy. This casserole features all the flavors of this spicy appetizer in the convenience of a casserole.

If you like dishes with lots of cheese, a fair amount of heat, and a whole ton of flavor, this is the potato casserole recipe for you.

20. Baked Potato Skins Mac and Cheese Recipe

This one combines two classic American recipes: cheesy potatoes and macaroni & cheese. 

So, how exactly does that work, you ask? Let me tell you. 

This phenomenal casserole includes two layers: the first of which is good, old-fashioned mac-n-cheese.

Then, you’ll top that with a layer of crispy, cheesy baked potato skins slathered with bacon, green onions, and a dash of cayenne. 

It’s not one for the dieters in the crowd, but you’re sure to love it anyway.
