Crock Pot Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

Crock Pot Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

You can find Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole in any Southern cookbook.   So, why am I adding a post about this Crock Pot Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole?

I made this Crockpot cheesy Hash Brown Casserole for years in the oven, but I decided to try these cheesy potatoes in the crockpot.  It is a great way to free up oven space when you are cooking multiple things.   This Hash Brown Casserole is a wonderful side dish to ham, turkey, chicken or beef entrees.  Try these cheesy Hash Browns 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 the bacon was missing.  The potatoes were great anyway.  If you enjoy Hash Brown Casserole, try my Slow Cooker Cheesy Hash Browns & Ham recipe below.  It is great for dinner or even breakfast.

My family loves these cheesy potatoes and you can find Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole in any Southern cookbook.   So, why am I adding a post about these Crock Pot Cheesy #Hash Brown Casserole? #sides #Thanksgiving #slow cooker #potatoes

Crock-Pot Hash Brown Casserole Recipe
Mix together the hash browns, soup, butter, onion, and seasonings.
Crock-Pot Hash Brown Casserole Recipe
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.

What recipe did I adapt?

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 shredded sharp cheddar cheese.  I did not think the Corn Flakes would get crispy in the crockpot.   I also added 1 teaspoon of Cajun Seasoning for additional flavor.  I hope your family enjoys these Crockpot Hash Brown Potatoes as much as our family does.

  1. […] Cheesy potatoes are a popular holiday dish here in Michigan. It’s just one of those warming, comfort foods that help us tolerate these winters. This recipe cooks in a slow cooker, leaving room in the oven for a fat, juicy turkey. To make it gluten free, try this gluten free cream of chicken soup. GET THE RECIPE […]

  2. Thank you Diane! I think Cream of Mushroom would make these taste fabulous. Can’t wait to give them a try. The weather is perfect for my crock pot right now. :)

  3. These look amazing and I love hash browns. I’m a vegetarian so any thought on what I can substitute for the cream of chicken soup?

    • Karlee,

      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I would substitute the Cream of Chicken for cream of mushroom. I think it would be delicious with these creamy cheesy hash browns.

  4. Diane, you are a genius. This is a very common dish out here, but I had never thought to make it in the crock pot! I will from now on. We call them ‘Funeral Potatoes’ usually out here, because whenever there is a funeral, whoever is in charge of the food in our church 98% of the time assigns these out. Great work!

  5. I made this recipe for my work potluck and wish I would have doubled it because it was a huge hit! Thank you for the great recipe. I will be making the pulled pork recipe tomorrow! Can’t wait!

    • Cat,

      You made my day! Thank you for stopping back by and letting me know everyone enjoyed this Crock-Pot Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole. The pulled pork is amazing! I love all the flavors. Let me know what you think if you have time.

      Blessings and thanks a BILLION for your support!

  6. 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?

    • Kate,

      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,

    • Shondie,

      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.

  7. 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.
