It’s not Labor Day but it is Nancy’s birthday!
Nancy is our oldest. Later we will go over for the celebration with food and games. We’re bringing a family favorite as requested, Grandpa’s Hash Brown Casserole. This is a great side dish for so many meals. We love it with steaks, ham, and the list goes on. Leftovers…it is delicious for breakfast too. Just so you know, it is NOT the same as Cracker Barrel’s!
Delicious side dish
Grandpa’s Hash Brown Casserole was something my dad always made for us when we visited. Not only is it sentimental; it is delicious! The kids called it Grandpa’s Hash Brown Casserole.

Today, we are taking Grandpa’s Hash Brown Casserole to Nancy’s birthday dinner. We’ll also have grilled steaks, strawberry spinach salad with all the fixings and birthday cake. I’m guessing the kids are baking hat.
It’s one of our family tried and true dishes that everyone likes. The kids took this recipe with them. It is in the copy of Mom’s handwritten cookbook.
We call it after my daddy, Grandpa, who was made sure it was made just right without any shortcuts! Delicious with both breakfast and grilled meals. Many of our recipes are named after who I got the recipe from during our many moves over the years.
Grandpa’s Hash Brown Cassarole is one of those workhorse sides. Double and freeze the extra. Travels well and holds the heat. Heats up well if there are any leftovers. Delicious well liked side dish.
