Optional Toppings:

  • ½ cup Colby jack cheese, (or use corn flakes)


  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, cook for 3 minutes or until soft.
  • Add flour, cook, keep stirring for 1-2 minutes or until it smells toasted.
  • Whisk in the broth, milk, garlic powder, chicken bouillon, and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until thickened (as thick as condensed soup), about 4-5 minutes. Adjust seasoning with extra salt and black pepper if needed.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add hash browns, 2 cups of cheese, sour cream, béchamel sauce, and a pinch of black pepper. Stir to combine. Transfer to a large baking dish, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove the casserole from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Sprinkle the casserole with ½ cup of cheese. Bake for 45-55 minutes.


If you are short on time, you may prepare, assemble, and bake the casserole on the same day.
