If you like the idea of hash browns in the slow cooker, then something like the easy cheesy hash brown casserole might interest you as well. It’s simply layered hash browns in a thick creamy, cheesy mix that is absolutely amazing.

Finish off with a layer of hash browns on top and pour any of the remaining egg mixture in. Top with ½ cup of cheese, the chives, salt & pepper.
- Place the lid on and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- Serve & Enjoy
- You don’t need to precook the bacon but doing so will leave you with delicious crispy bits of bacon at the end of cooking.
- Remember most slow cookers run at different temperatures so you may find yours could cook sooner than 8 hours even on low.
- You can swap the bacon out for something like sliced pork sausages if you’re looking for an alternative to bacon. You could even try cooking the dish with pulled pork or shredded chicken.
- I made use of hash brown patties but you can also use shredded, it will work just as well. There won’t be much of a difference between the two so don’t stress too much about trying to choose which variety to buy.
- You can add some sliced red bell peppers to this dish by swapping the tomatoes with them or just having it as an extra ingredient.
- If you love things cheesy, then don’t be afraid to double that cheese. You could also experiment with stronger flavors of cheese to get a much different tasting dish.
