This slow cooker cheesy hash brown casserole include Hash browns, butter, onion, Cream of Chicken Soup, sour cream, Cajun Seasoning, garlic, black pepper, and lots of sharp shredded cheddar cheese.



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


Make This Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole In Your Slow Cooker

I made this 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.

  1. My boyfriend LOVES the hashbrown casserole from Cracker Barrel and I’ve been looking for a recipe similar to it! I’ve found it! I’m making this for dinner. I wonder how it will turn out using cream cheese instead of sour cream? Have you tried that before?

    • Terry,

      Thank you for stopping by my blog, Recipes For Our Daily Bread. YES! You do need a regular size 10.5 ounce can of cream of chicken soup.

      Have a great weekend!

    • Vanessa,

      HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Thank you for stopping by to see my easy cheesy Hash Brown Casserole. It is perfect with ham or turkey. It is even delicious with leftover ham inside of it for breakfast. Anyway, I do not want to guide you wrong. It has been a while since I doubled this recipe but I believe it will take about 4 hours on low. Do not turn it up on high. The edges will burn easily. With a slow cooker that full, I would stir it every hour or so. It needs to be cheesy so try not to overcook it.

    This dish was amazing!! I made it a few weeks ago, and am family loved it so much, it has made our Christmas Day menu. I did not alter, or substitute anything, and it turned out perfect. Thanks so much!!

  3. These sounds amazing and I’m hoping to make them for my family party this Friday! Can I just ask though, why not shredded hash browns? I like those better than the chunks :-/

  4. 4 stars
    Yum yum yummy, delicious, I checked the sources that you mentioned above 🙂 but this is clearer. recipe for potatoes cheesy hash brown uses easy material which is not hard to get. anyway, thank you.

  5. 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. 🙂

  6. 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.

  7. Diane you are a crock pot cooking aficionado. It is about time for me to get out my crock pot not that the weather is turning. I’ll know right were to go when I am looking for recipes too!

  8. 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!

    • Carrie,

      I love the name. I have had them at many Funerals too, but never thought about calling them Funeral Potatoes. That is too funny.

      Thanks for sharing!

  9. 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!

  10. 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,
      Diane Roark

    • 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.

  11. 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! 🙂

    • Hannah,

      I am so glad you tried these Crock-Pot Cheesy Hash brown recipe. We really enjoy them and I was thrilled to hear that you enjoyed them too. You made my day!!!
