Make This Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole In Your Slow Cooker
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 an excellent side dish to ham, turkey, chicken or beef entrees. Try these Cheesy Hash Browns instead of a baked potato.
Add Bacon For A Treat
For an extra treat, add 6 to 8 slices of crumbled bacon in these potatoes. Adding the bacon to the potatoes makes a perfect breakfast dish. I had the crumbled bacon ready for this casserole and completely forgot to add it. No one noticed the bacon was missing. The potatoes are incredibly delicious with or without the bacon.

What recipe did I adapt to make this Crock Pot Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole?
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 one teaspoon of Cajun Seasoning for additional flavor.
