Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole
Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole in an easy side dish recipe made in the slow cooker! It tastes just like Cracker Barrel!!
You must try this delicious crockpot side dish recipe. I must admit I was a little hesitant to make this because I thought it would burn in the slow cooker. But shockingly it did not turn out like that at all, I am so glad I made it! It did cook with a crispy edge around the outside edge but that is it. Which when you make this in the oven you get a crispy edge too.
My whole family had seconds and loved it! They want it back on the menu soon, like they want me to make it again next week 🙂 The nice thing about this crockpot recipe is you only need 6 ingredients plus salt and pepper if desired. I will be making this over the holidays when I have the whole family over for a big meal.
I think this would be great with ham for a family dinner or special occasion. It would also be a nice addition for a brunch menu too! No matter how you serve it you are guaranteed that everyone will love it! I hope you enjoy this as much as we do. Be sure to put this on your holiday menu list to make! You will love this easy Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole side dish made in the slow cooker!

I love this recipe, I make something like it every year for thanksgiving but never thought about using the crockpot!!
Come link up with me and share!
This looks great! I love using my crock pot as much as I possibly can, and I think this would be a big hit here. Thanks for sharing. Stopping by from the mandatory mooch link party.
Love to do things in the crock pot. This looks similar to a recipe I have that goes in the oven. I’ll have to try your crock pot version. Thanks!
Mmmm, that looks tasty!! 🙂
Oh yum! I can’t wait to give this recipe a try!
Pinned for owl giveaway!
Hi Stephanie, thanks for sharing this yummy treat!
This was absolutely delicious and so easy to prepare. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
Will definitely try this, it looks really good! Thank you, Stephanie!! 🙂
I never would have thought to use my crock pot for these….thanks for sharing
Oh, yum! I love hash browns and I love anything that I can put in the crock pot. I will be bookmarking this site for sure!
This is a great Crockpot recipe for the Hashbrowns, just delicious. Hope you are staying warm and cozy in this cold weather and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
Come Back Soon!
This Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole is so good and tastes like Cracker Barrel!
If I am doubling the recipe, should I cook it longer than 4-5 hours?
Yes I was wondering if you could double the recipe and how long it would take?
Can leftovers be frozen?
We have never tried but I am sure you could.
Did anyone try the doubling? How long did you cook?
Did you cook it on high or low
Looks very good!
I love the crockpot recipes. This one is a keeper. thx
I love cracker barrel’s hash brown casserole so i will be giving this a try 🙂
On menu for Wednesday night with smoked pork chops.
Love Hashbrown casserole! Can’t wait to try this recipe!
Oops…meant to paste this to the Crockpot giveaway! lol
Did any of you ladies that doubled the recipe end up cooking it longer? I plan to double the recipe and to make it this weekend for a brunch and am not sure if it needs to cook longer.
We haven’t doubled it.
Looks delicious! Was going to make for sunday school tomorrow but in the southern baptist church, i gotta add some sausage, lol. Have you ever added ground sausage? (I don’t tell them, but i use ground turkey sausage, shhh!)
That would be a great addition!
I doubled the recipe and it turned out great! I left it on low for 4.5 hrs and it could have gone for 5 but everyone had already eaten all of it 🙂
Tried for Thanksgiving minus the onions because there are a few really picky eaters in my family. Turned out awesome! Not a bite left. I also subbed Greek yogurt for the SC (personal preference).
Can’t go wrong with this recipe. As long as you butter the pan all around, you don’t have to line it with saran wrap. I made two in one day, because my family wanted more. It’s a tradition to make hash brown casserole as one of the dishes on Christmas morning. This crockpot recipe just made it way easier, because I can start cooking it the night before. It was ready to eat. I cooked mine on low for 5-6 hours. Simply Potatoes are the best hash browns to make it with by far.
Love this recipe but I am curious…can you sub cream of onion for the cream of chicken? Thanks for this recipe 🙂
You can use any cream of soup – chicken, celery – the sky is the limit!
If I make this the night before can I just heat it up in the crock pot the next morning? I’m afraid of it getting mushy. Thoughts?
We have had others make it and reheat leftovers so it might work for you.
I have made this twice now for potluck dinner/lunches. Both times I have mixed the night before and put in crock in the refrigerator. Then I just plug in the crock in the morning and it was ready for our work lunch pot luck!! Picky eaters, so I used onion powder instead of onions.
That is AWESOME to know! Thanks!
Do you set the crockpot to low or high for the 4-5 hours?
On low – per the recipe instructions. Enjoy!
Hi, can you cook this on high? I have a 9am brunch at work and wondering how I can cook it faster.
Here you go – https://www.stockpilingmoms.com/2015/02/slow-cooker-conversions/
Should I use MILD cheddar cheese or SHARP cheddar cheese?
Your preference but we choose mild.
Sounds delcious. great recipe. Thanks for sharing.
Can I sub the cream of chicken soup with something else?
Yes, can cream of soup will work.
Can I double the recipe or is this enough for 10 people?
Enough for 10
I’m curious if the cream of celery gives it a celery taste? I’ve made variations of this always with cream of chicken. However, I’m hosting a brunch and have a friend attending that’s vegetarian. I want to make something like this, but I’m curious on the taste difference with cream of celery! Thanks!!
I don’t notice a huge difference when I have subbed it.
Is this gluten-free? I have a couple of guests who have CD and just want to ensure that they can eat this. If not, can it be made GF?
It can be made gluten free. Ore-Ida Hashbrowns are gluten free, use Pacific Foods Organic Cream of Chicken Condensed Soup and be sure the cheese you use is gluten free. I don’t used “shredded cheese in a bag” instead I use block cheese and shred it myself. Hope this helps!
Can this recipe be doubled if I use an 8 qt. slow cooker? Thanks.
i fix a recipe almost exactly like this in the oven, but add a 12 oz package of diced ham and chop a red bell pepper to mix in as well. i was just wondering how it would work out in the crockpot with the sour cream when i came across your recipe! (i don’t want the cream to curdle.) i was thinking about cooking it over night for breakfast, but will either have to put it in the programmable cooker or make a special alarm for it to be fresh. thank you for the post, it saves me some curiosity and worry.
This has become an office party staple. Made the “mistake “ of making this for a potluck in January and now every birthday, brunch, gathering, etc. : “Can you make THE potatoes?!” I sub cheddar cheese soup for cream of chicken. Gives an extra tang and makes it veg-friendly. Thanks for posting this!
I made this recipe and there is too much butter other wise it was fine
I love this stuff and love that someone came up with a slow cooker method for it. I am disabled and it kills me to make the casserole and baking it is a bit of a problem because it hurts for me to bend and lift. With this recipe I can toss it all in my slow cooker and let it go. I do add more onion and black pepper and I use white cheese, light sour cream, and fit and active soup.
can i add cooked bacon to this recipe?
Yes, that sounds amazing!
Making this today. Hope it turns out well.
I’m going camping and we have a pot luck the second night (Saturday). Could I mix this up Friday afternoon and keep it in a bag in the cooler for almost a day without it getting mushy? I won’t have a kitchen to prepare it in but will have electricity for the croc-pot. Thanks, it sounds yummy.
I think it will work!
I made this yesterday for a bridal shower brunch and it was delicious! I started with Aldi frozen hashbrown potatoes (since it said you can do frozen or thawed) and also shredded my own Sharp cheddar cheese (vs purchasing pre-shredded). I did use unsalted butter so would probably mix in a bit of salt next time. I cooked over low for 5.5 hours, then set on warm for the remainder of the brunch. The texture was great even after a few hours on warm. Thanks for the great recipe!
Could you use o’brien potatoes?
Stay at home dad here and cooked this for 4.5 hours and still has not got crispy on the edges. Help
Fussy eaters? What can I use instead of sour cream.? Also what can a person use instead of sour cream in re recipe?
Cream of Chicken Soup
Could you double this recipe and still have it fit in a regular crock pot?
Yes a 6 Qt
I did a double batch and added a few things like crumpled bacon and it fit nicely in my 6 quart crockpot
How long did you cook the double batch?
Add about 1-2 hours but check it often to make sure it doesn’t get over done. It really depends on your slow cooker. When doubling a recipe use a larger slow cooker and you don’t need to extend the time. It depends on how “full” your slow cooker is.
Recipe calls for frozen or thawed hash browns. Which did you use? I imagine it makes a difference for the cooking time. Thanks
If you doubled the recipe and used frozen hash browns, thoughts on how long to cook on low?
Hmmm. I would increase by an hour and check.
What can I substitute the cream of chicken soup with?
Any cream of soup would work. If you don’t have one then I would try sour cream.
Is it possible to cook this on high for a quicker meal? If so how long might it take to cook instead of the 4-5 hours?
Yes! 2 hours!
Can you make it the night before and warm it the next morning.
I like it fresh personally but it isn’t bad as leftovers.
I fry the left overs for breakfast the next morning……..delicious
Can you mix the ingredients the night before and put in crockpot the next morning?
Is the 1/2 cup of butter right? None of the other recipes call for butter.
Can you use fresh grated potatoes?
Yes you can but I would still flash freeze them.
Made this for Christmas Eve brunch today and it was so delicious! Followed the recipe exactly, just added 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper. Perfection, thanks for sharing the recipe! My new go-to brunch side dish. Super easy to make.
Just cooked it mine turned out very runny. What did I do wrong?
Did you follow the directions exactly? Ours has never been runny. Did you cook it long enough?
Will the sour cream curdle?
Can I use the regular recipe in a 6 qt cooker? I don’t have a 4 qt. Does the larger pot reduce cook time?
I’ve been making cabbage
Can I use the diced hash browns instead of the shredded variety?
I’ve made this so many times. It’s delicious and easy to make. If you put it on high for approx 2 hours you can have the same results.
