1. Cheesy Mashed Potato Casserole

Since there are so many different ways to prepare potatoes, potato casserole recipes can be built with any. 

The base here is mashed potatoes made with sour cream, butter, cream cheese and milk. 

Then bacon, cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese for baking. 

Green onions bring a brightness when serving.

2. Potato Stuffing Casserole

This potato stuffing casserole is a German adaptation of mashed potatoes. 

Unlike other potato casserole dishes, this one has “stuffing ingredients” of celery, onion, bread, and of course, potatoes. 

Potatoes are cooked and mashed first, then the casserole starts on the stovetop and ends in the oven! 

3. Cheesy Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole

Some casseroles with potatoes have lots of ingredients, but not this one. 


This one has exactly five which is fantastic! 

If it seems a bit familiar, it is a copycat recipe of the Cracker Barrel recipe. 

Gather up some frozen hash browns, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and butter and simply follow the directions for cooking in a slow cooker or the oven! 

4. Ground Beef Casserole With Potatoes

Here is one of those filling main dish dinner potato casserole ideas I mentioned earlier! 

Ground beef or ground sausage work well! 

Layers are built in the dish with sliced potatoes, beef mixture and cheese with a milk mixture poured evenly across the top! 

Needs an hour to bake!

11. Cheesy Potato Casserole

Here we have a shredded potato casserole with a different taste twist. 

It uses some of the same as other recipes except for the cream of mushroom soup and chicken broth additions! 

I think adding in mushrooms would be a really nice touch!

12. Famous Crispy Potato Casserole

Crispy potatoes that are slow roasted make this recipe divine! 

Few potato casserole dishes have crispy potatoes, so if you like them, this is your recipe! 

The potatoes are diced and the seasonings are divine. 

Being well coated with oil and stirring every fifteen minutes are key.

13. Hamburger Potato Casserole

What beats casseroles with potatoes but casseroles with potatoes and ground beef? 

The different ingredients in this recipe, making it extra cheesy, is cheddar cheese soup and evaporated milk. 

This is a wonderful choice for dinner!

14. Parmesan Creamed Potatoes

Indulgent would accurately describe this parmesan creamed potato recipe. 

It is the first of my potato casserole recipes that focuses on parmesan flavor. 

It combines parmesan, breadcrumbs, butter and salt to be used as a unique topping!

Lots of potato casserole ideas are comfort food. 

This one is no exception. 

Tender broccoli, savory bacon, melty cheese all mixed together with potatoes and chicken marinated in ranch dressing. 

Ooo la-la!

16. Hashbrown Casserole

Homemade shredded potato casserole is what makes this recipe a winner! 

NO soups.  

Either frozen or freshly grated potatoes work well.

I love a hearty breakfast casserole and this one has breakfast sausage, potatoes, eggs, milk, cheese and chives. 

The best part is I designed it with flexibility in mind so anyone who makes this can add in their preferred protein, cheese or even vegetables! 

So tasty!
