A pure comfort food casserole that the whole family will love! Tons of cheesy, ranch goodness!
As soon as fall settles in, I'm all about casseroles! More than likely, if you grew up in Minnesota, you know them as "hotdish". I'm a true Minnesota girl. I love when the weather is cold, and also love blizzards as long as I'm stuck in the house and don't have to drive anywhere. Some people call me crazy, but I love truly love it! There's nothing like a cold day, with the oven on, baking a casserole!
This Cheesy Ranch Chicken Hashbrown Casserole is pure old school comfort food. This is the type of food my Mom and Grandma made. It's not something I make very often, but I always enjoy the nostalgia of each bite when I do. I really love the addition of ranch, and the crouton topping? Too die for! I had cooked chicken breast on hand, so this was really quick to prepare too.
This recipe would be great for weeknights or Sunday dinner! Serve it with a side salad or steamed vegetables for a complete meal. What do you like to put in your favorite casseroles?
