My family loves these cheesy potatoes and you can find this recipe in any Southern cookbook. So, why am I posting this Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole Recipe again? 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.
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.
