Crock Pot Ham and Cheese Hash Brown Casserole is super cheesy with chunks of ham and two kinds of cheese. It is great as an all in one breakfast or as a dish for an elaborate holiday brunch.
This is a really rich hash brown casserole which is the way I like my hash brown casseroles. It’s pure comfort food! Sour cream, cream cheese, and a can of potato soup make it super creamy. A combo of cheddar cheese and colby jack cheese adds plenty of cheese flavor.
There’s plenty of ham in this Crock Pot Ham and Cheese Hash Brown Casserole so that each and every bite has a chunk of ham. This recipe is great for using up leftover Easter or Thanksgiving ham.
Ham and Cheese Hash Brown Casserole Recipe Tips:
To make this casserole spicy, add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.
The paper towels placed on top of the crock pot help prevent all the condensation from dripping back down on the casserole.
Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
Cooked and crumbled bacon or sausage can be substituted for the ham.
