Slow Cooker Hash Brown Casserole

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!

You will find that this dish is best as a side, but can still be eaten just by itself. Personally, I love having this for breakfast with some bacon & eggs. It also makes for a great side dish to roast pork, slow cooker whole chicken or something similar.

This dish is incredibly heavy but addictive at the same time. It 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 flavor 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.

Cooking Tips:

  • You can use either shredded or patty hash browns in this recipe. There is very little difference between the two by the time you’re finished cooking.
  • Chopped chives go incredibly well with this dish. You can mix the chopped chives in the cream & cheese mix or just sprinkle them over the top once you’re ready to serve.
  • If you want to go one bit further, you can add some bacon, sausage or even shredded chicken to the dish. Add these to your cheese mix for the best flavorsome outcome.
  • I used regular 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 unappetizing.
