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. If you enjoy this recipe, try my Slow Cooker Cheesy Hash Browns & Ham recipe below. It is great for dinner or even breakfast.
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.
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.
