Bacon-Scallion Hash Brown Casserole
Whether it’s for breakfast, brunch, or the last game of the season, this classic party mainstay is sure to make you the most popular host on the block. And with the addition of creamy chive-sour cream dip and crisp smoky bacon, this casserole is that much better.
To ensure the bacon remains crisp as it bakes in the casserole, it must be well done before adding.
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
Cook bacon in a sauté pan over medium heat until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Drain all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from pan. Add scallion whites and sweat until softened, about 1 minute; transfer to a large bowl.
Whisk in dip, Cheddar, milk, scallion greens, and cream cheese. Stir in hash browns and bacon; season with salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.
Combine corn flakes and butter, season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle over casserole.
Bake casserole until golden and bubbly, about 45 minutes.
