Crock Pot Creamy Hash Brown Potatoes is such an easy and delicious potato dish. It’s made from frozen hash brown potatoes (the cubed ones), a can of condensed potato soup, lots of Colby Jack cheese, sour cream, and a container of chive and onion cream cheese spread. A hash brown casserole doesn’t get any creamier than this.
This yummy potato dish only takes seconds to prep and the crock pot does the rest. Just combine all ingredients except the cream cheese spread in a crock pot. Let it cook 4 hours and then stir in the cream cheese spread and serve. So rich and good!!
No need to thaw the hash browns first. If they are frozen in a big chunk, just be sure to open the crock pot after about 20 minutes to give everything a good stir.
Using the diced potatoes isntead of the shredded gives this hashbrown casserole a whole different texture and taste. To me it feels a little less breakfasty and more like a potato side dish. It’s great for breakfast or brunch but would also go well with chicken or steak.
I like to use freshly shredded cheese over the pre-shredded. It melts much better and has a fresher flavor. Colby Jack is a nice, mild cheese to use and it melts well, but you could sub Monterey Jack cheese or cheddar cheese.
