Crockpot Cheesy Potatoes
These cheesy potatoes are easy and perfect side dish for the holidays or potlucks that is made in your crock pot!
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 cream of chicken soup 10 3/4 oz
- 1 c. sour cream
- 1 Tbsp onion flakes
- 1/4 c. butter melted
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 32 oz frozen cubed hash brown potatoes thawed
- 2 c. sharp cheddar cheese
Combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, onion and butter in a large bowl. Add hash browns and 1 1/2 c. cheese and stir until combined. Pour into 4 qt slow cooker, cover.
Cook for 4-5 hours on low or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over potatoes and continue to cook 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Can I make these in the Oven? Of course you can! Instead of putting these into a slow cooker just put them into a greased 9'' x 13'' casserole dish and spread out evenly. Cover with tinfoil. Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until nice and bubbly and heated through. Remove foil and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through and cheesy is just beginning to brown.
Can I use shredded potatoes? Yes! Just beware that these will take a little less time to cook in your crock pot so keep an eye on them before they turn mushy.
Can I use fresh, diced potatoes? Yes, you can, but make sure you place them on a lint-free towel first to wring out any excess liquid. Also, add 1-2 hours of cooking time because frozen potatoes have actually been cooked a little bit.
How do I store leftovers? Let cool then place in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should lest for up to 5 days when stored properly.
How do I reheat leftovers? Place the amount of potatoes on a plate that you would like. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until they are heated through. You can also place leftovers in a baking dish and reheat in oven at 300 degrees.
Can I double this recipe? You can! Make sure you have at least a 6 quart crock pot to do this. It will be VERY full. Add a hour of time onto the cooking time.
Flavorful additions: Mix in your favorite flavors like crumbles bacon, sauteed onions, green onions, diced jalapenos, top with cornflakes or whatever you can think of!
