Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

This is a family favorite, one you will always find at those holiday or birthday dinners. It’s also a recipe I go to when having dinner for a group. We had these ribs for Father’s Day and I asked Tim what side he’d like to go with them. How ‘bout that cheesy potato thing?, he said.

So the “cheesy potato thing” it is. It was a warm day and I try to refrain from using the oven on hot days. The way my kitchen is designed the heat just hangs in there and makes it miserable. I’ve made these before in my crock pot. The last time I made them, I did an hour on high and then about 3 hours on low. The hash browns didn’t seem done. I cooked these for an hour on high and then 4 hours on low. They turned out more like cheesy mashed potatoes but still were delicious. I think my mistake was I thawed these before I cooked them and I think that caused them to cook faster.

Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

2 lbs. hash browns
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cheese soup
1 c. milk
1 c. sour cream
2 c. grated cheddar cheese

Spray the crockpot with non stick cooking spray. Mix together the soups, onion, milk, sour cream and 1/2 of the cheese. Stir in the potatoes. Cook on high for 1 hour. Turn the crockpot to low and cook an additional 2 1/2 hours. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese and cook an additional 30 minutes.
