Crock-Pot Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

Crock-Pot Hash Brown Casserole Recipe

Crock-Pot Hash Brown Casserole

My family loves these cheesy potatoes and you can find this recipe in any Southern cookbook.   So, why am I adding a post about these Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole Recipe?  I made it for many years in the oven, but I decided to try these cheesy potatoes in the crock-pot.  It is a great way to free up oven space when you are cooking multiple things.   These potatoes are a wonderful side dish to most chicken or beef entrees.  Try these cheesy potatoes instead of a baked potato.  For an extra treat, add 6 to 8 slices of crumbled bacon in these potatoes. I had the crumbled bacon ready for this casserole and completely forgot to add it.  No one noticed and the potatoes were great anyway.

Crock-Pot Tip: I have always used a cooking spray before adding my ingredients to my Crock-Pot.  I have tried the plastic liners which are designed for slow cookers.  They worked great and I liked them.  The liners really make clean up a snap.  However, I use my crock-pot almost daily and sometimes I use all three of my crock-pots at one time, especially on the weekends.  In other words, I would use so many of the liners the additional cost would really add up.

After mixing together all the ingredients, place it into a crock-pot that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Add one cup of shredded cheese in the mixture, and cover the top with the remaining cup of cheese.  I  normally use Cheddar Cheese but had to use Colby this time. Cook on low 3 to 4 hours in your crock-pot.

Hash Brown Harvest Potatoes - The original recipe is from Tried & True Secret Recipes Cookbook by Ron Douglas.  If you are preparing these potatoes in the oven, it calls for 2 cups of crushed Corn Flakes mixed with 1/4 cup butter for the topping.  For my crock-pot version, I omitted the topping and added 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese.  I did  not think the Corn Flakes would get crispy in the crock-pot.   I also added 1 teaspoon of Cajun Seasoning for additional flavor.  I hope your family enjoys these Crock-pot Hash Brown Potatoes as much as our family does.

    This looks great, and so easy! Do you think I would get similar results with using brown rice (cooked, but not hot) instead of potatoes? I’m trying to use up the abundance of rice in my pantry and I think although the texture may not be as good, I think it may still work… thoughts?

      I have cooked brown rice in my crock-pot and it work great. I have not used it in this recipe. You gave me an idea. I may have to try it. Brown rice needs a lot more water, so it may take a few tries to get the recipe right.

      Thanks for your comments,

      Please come back and let me know what you think. This crock-pot cheesy hash brown casserole is so easy and really good. DO NOT OVER COOK IT! As soon as it starts bubbling around the edges, turn it down on simmer or off.

    My family absolutely adores this recipe :) Just fyi: I made mine with the hash browns still frozen (I may or may not have been running late)…and after 3 hours it still turned out perfectly! As a matter of fact, the potatoes were just a touch crunchy (like a baked potato texture), and we loved it! Thank you for the wonderful recipe and new family favorite! :)

      You are so supportive. I am very thankful you found Recipes for our Daily Bread. I am working on lots of fall recipes. I just love the fall weather and get so excited when the smells of fall fill my home including cinnamon, nutmeg, poultry seasoning, cloves, and more. I pray God will bless everything you do.
