Crock-Pot Cheesy Hash Browns & Ham

What can you make when you have a crock-pot, cheese, ham, and potatoes?

Which post on my blog received the most hits last year in 2013?  Which post continues to receive the most hits every day this year?  My Crock-Pot Cheesy Hash Browns.  I am always surprised by the number of hits these potatoes receive.  I have thought many times about why this recipe is so popular.  I really believe that people are searching for food that is easy to prepare, delicious, and in the case with these potatoes, goes with everything.  Cooking in a crock-pot is really easy.  It definitely helps me put meals on the table many days with little effort.  My family loves coming home to enticing smells coming from my crock-pot.  They normally all gather around it trying to see what delicious food is smelling so good.  I believe they will always associate comfort food and the comforts of home with my crock-pot.

Because my Cheesy Hash Brown recipe is so popular, I decided to blog about my other easy recipe using these hash browns.  Today, I am sharing my Crock-Pot Cheesy Hash Browns & Ham.  You can use any ham, but I really like using leftover baked ham.  I have used honey ham, country ham, and smoked ham in these potatoes.  All these different hams are delicious in this Crock-Pot Cheesy Hash Browns & Ham recipe.

    I totally agree with the corn flake topping. I have added it to other recipes in the past and it is so crunchy and yummy.

    Thanks so much for stopping by.

    You know what’s really good to add to this?

    Adding a crumbled corn flake topping on top about 15 minutes before serving.

    Or any other crumb-style topping. I use corn flakes.

    The written recipe doesn’t tell you when to add the ham, so I am thankful for your photos since it shows it’s added to the mixture. Making this now. Can’t wait. It smells so good aleeady

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment. I hope you get to try these Cheesy Hash Browns & Ham. They are really good. Make sure you do not over cook them. As soon as they start bubbling around the edges, they are done. If we eat them for breakfast, I have them ready to put in the base when I let my dogs out around 5:30 am – 6:00 am. This works out great. Anyway, The original recipe feeds 6 people. I am guessing adding the ham this recipe should feed at least 8.
    I hope this helps.

    I am finding out that lots of people love crock-pot recipes. They save me so much time. I do not know what I would do without my 3 crock-pots. A lot of days I use all 3 of them at one time.
    It is starting to ice here. YUCK!!
    Have fun watching the Super Bowl.

    It is similar weather here in Arkansas. We are getting ice now and maybe snow later. I love my crock-pot and I am finding out that other people must love crock-pot recipes too.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment.
    Blessings and have a great day!
