Preparation Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 25 mins
2 cups of McCain® Diced Hashbrowns
1 cup of ham, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
1 whole apple, chopped small
1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and fresh ground pepper
1 cup grated (4 ounces) Gruyère cheese
1/8 cup all purpose flour
2 pieces scallions, chopped
Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly butter an 8 inch baking dish. Set aside.
Preheat two small skillets over medium-high heat and sauté McCain® Breakfast Diced Hashbrowns as per instructions on package, remove from heat and place to the side.
In separate skillet add ham stirring occasionally until pieces start to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add onions and chopped apples, stirring occasionally until onions are slightly brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer mixture to a plate and let cool slightly.

Cooked uncovered for 25 mins. Remove from oven, garnish with chopped scallions and serve.
This hashbrown casserole is great! I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, but this recipe is so easy to customize, it still turned out great. I omitted the apples, changed the heavy cream for sour cream, and didn't add any scallions, and it was so good! It sort of looked like a fritatta when it came out of the oven, but it had a nice and cheesy taste. Next time I make it, I think I will double the recipe.
The ease of making this dish is so simple. The taste is great. Made it for a large group of people and it was all gone in seconds. Would make this again and again
I made this for a lot of men for a fishing weekend. They loved it! Quick and easy, great taste and best of all they did the dishes. Thanks for this great recipe KEEPER! I'll be making it next time for my family to try.
This is a great recipe that can be doubled easily for a crowd. I love the addition of apples for a touch of sweetness and, well, cheese is always great. Another time, I might add a bit of bacon for that salty hit. Would definitely make again.
Wow...what an absolute find. I had heard about tAter tot casserole and was curious. So when I saw this recipe on chickadvisori was intrigued. Wow again, so tasty, my sons loved it and I regretted not making more. I added some onion and garlic salt for taste. Would love nutrition information about these recipes.
I made this last night but left the meat out as I'm a vegetarian. Instead I put some peppers in - which was even more great. It was delicious and so easy to make!
I followed this recipe as it said and my family loved it. Even the kids liked the McCain hash browns, ham and apple flavour with cheese. Omg I should've made more. Next time I make it I'll know to make a larger amount in the big casserole dish. I will definitely be making this McCain hashbrown casserole again thank you mccains. There's no hashbrown a or fries like yours.
I made the "Cheesy McCain Hashbrown Casserole Recipe" last night for my family for supper. It was delicious! I changed the cheese to creamed cheese and american cheese and omitted the onion but it was without a doubt awesome! We actually wished we would have made two!
I make a really different variation of this recipe that is even easier. It is one of my favourite things to make because it is so so so delicious. I put mushroom soup and sour cream into mine and it makes it so creamy. I want some right now. I don't really care for the looks of the recipe that was posted but mine is the money.
I tried this recipe last well and let me just say that a week later that I am still wanting more. It was delicious and definitely was a fan favourite among my family and friends that I made it for. So tasty and the hashbrowns were absolutely delicious. In addition however, this was so easy to make but was also easily amendable, so I could omit certain things or add more of others without screwing it up.
