This slow cooker hash brown casserole is one of the easiest cheesiest potato dishes ever. If you love cheese and potato, then you’re going to love eating this dish!
As you could imagine this dish is best as a side but can still be eaten just by itself. I personally love having this for breakfast with some bacon & eggs. It also makes for a great side dish to a roast pork, slow cooker whole chicken or something similar.
This dish is incredibly heavy but addictive at the same time. This is a meal to avoid if you’re on a diet or looking for a healthy meal. On the flip-side you’re just looking for something that is packed full of flavour and not worried about a few extra carbs then you’re in for a treat.
This dish also reheats surprisingly well (Might split slightly) so if you end up with leftovers simply keep in the fridge and reheat whenever you need a quick & easy meal. I should mention that it probably won’t freeze very well so I suggest to avoid freezing it.

Slow Cooker Hash Brown Casserole Recipe
2 cups sour cream
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1kg (32 oz.) hash browns (patties or shredded)
Salt & Pepper
Lightly spray the slow cooker/crock pot.
Add the hash browns then pour over our cheese mix.
Cook on low for about 4 hours.
Serve & Enjoy
Chopped chives go incredibly well with this dish. You can mix the chopped chives through the cream & cheese mix or just sprinkle them over the top once you’re done.
If you want to go one bit further you can add some bacon, sausage or even shredded chicken to the dish. Add these into your cheese mix for the best flavoursome outcome.
I used normal full fat sour cream in this recipe but haven’t tried using low fat so you may find it comes out slightly different with low fat sour cream.
Personally I wouldn’t cook this for any longer than the 4 hours otherwise you may find it will dry out or the cheese may curdle and become a bit unappetising.
