Recipe Tips

  • Use a condensed cheese soup in replace of cream of chicken for a vegetarian option.
  • Cubed hash browns work as well as the shredded hash browns for this recipe.
  • Top the casserole with crushed cornflakes and broil in the oven for 1-3 minutes to crunch it up for a crispy topping.
  • Instead of cheddar cheese use a pepper jack, Monterey cheese, etc.

Storing Tips

If you happen to have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Then reheat in the microwave. Or cover with aluminum foil and warm it up in the oven until the cheesy hashbrown casserole is warmed through.

Recipe FAQs

Can I make hash brown casserole in advance?

There are two ways you can make this casserole in advance. The first way is you can prep all the ingredients and pour them into the crockpot. Then cover and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Then when you are ready to cook, place it in the crockpot and turn it low. You will need to add extra cook time since you are starting to cook from a cold pot. The second way is to cook it fully, then transfer it to an airtight container. Then reheat the next day, or leave it in the crockpot and warm it up the next day.

Can I bake this in the oven instead?

Want to make this casserole in the oven instead of the slow cooker? All you have to do is prepare the casserole the same. Pour into a greased pan, then top with cheese—Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Check to see how the casserole is coming along. If the cheese on top is nice and golden brown, the casserole is ready to dish up.

Can I use fresh potatoes?

If you prefer to use fresh potatoes, go ahead and grab your grater and shred your own potatoes. Use the same amount of shredded potatoes as the recipe calls for. The cook time will stay the same.

Can I use to cube potatoes with peppers and onions in them?

You will find you can buy cubed potatoes with peppers and onions. This can be used to replace the shredded hashbrowns. It will work great and add another layer of flavor to each bite of this cheesy potato dish.
