Using French Fries in Hashbrown Casserole

Can you substitute french fries for hashbrowns in hashbrown casserole? I have found that some fries are half the price of hashbrowns and wonder if anyone has substituted fries for them.

Why not try it and see what happens? If all else fails, make your own hash browns; it's really easy to do!

I don't see why you couldn't substitute them. I make this casserole called Cheeseburger and Fries.

2 lbs browned ground meat

2 cans cheddar cheese soup (no milk)

Small bag of frozen fries.

Mix the soup with the ground meat, place in bottom of baking dish, top with fries. Bake for 1 hour at 400 degrees.

Some cheaper fries are full of grease so be aware. Take a chef knife and chop/cut them up.

This seems like a long time and a high temp. to cook meat that is already browned. Do you mean for the meat to be completely cooked through before going into the oven or just a quick browning but still not cooked all the way? Thanks,
