Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole

Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole is easy, delicious, and a family favorite! It’s perfect for a potluck, brunch, or easy Sunday side dish.

Slow cooker recipes to the rescue! Crockpot Hash Brown Casserole is a delicious side dish, great for holidays or any meal for that matter – especially on busy days. It’s just as easy and cheesy as our Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese.

A cheesy potato side Dish

What I love about the slow cooker is the set-it-and-forget-it mindset.

I love the classic Hash Brown Casserole (very similar to Funeral Potatoes). In converting the dish to a slow cooker, I wondered if the hash browns would turn into a soupy mess. Answer – not at all.

From the cheese to the potatoes and cornflakes, there’s crispiness all over this dish. And it couldn’t be simpler to put together!

This Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole is the tastiest and easiest casserole I’ve ever made. It would be an amazing dish to serve for your Easter Sunday brunch, or with your Thanksgiving Dinner. It would also be great to make after Christmas dinner when you have leftover holiday ham.

Either way, put this into your permanent breakfast or side dish rotation. You won’t be sorry, and your family will love you even more for it!

Mixing ingredients for crockpot hashbrown casserole in a bowl.

Making hashbrown casserole in the crockpot

MIX. Start by mixing all of your ingredients into a bowl.

SLOW COOK. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased crock pot. Set on HIGH, cook for 2 hours and 30 minutes.

CRUNCHY TOP. Melt butter, and mix with cornflake cereal. Pour on top of the casserole, cook for an additional 30 minutes.

Note. If you don’t have cornflakes, you can also use crushed crackers or Panko for some crunch.

Now you’ve got yourself the creamiest, crunchiest, cheesiest Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole I ever did have. Beyond simple!


Fresh potatoes instead of frozen hash browns. Peel and shred the potatoes. Put the shreds in a bowl of cold water. Stir them around, drain, add more water. Repeat a few times to remove the starch from the potatoes. After the final drain, pat dry and use in the recipe. 

Soup. Substitute the cream of chicken soup for other favorites: cream of celery soup, cream of mushroom soup, or a can of cream of chicken & mushroom soup. 

Cheese. I love the shredded cheddar cheese used in this dish, but you can use colby jack cheese as well. You can also add extra cheese for really cheesy hash browns.  

Season. Use salt, black pepper, garlic powder, or onion powder to add extra flavor. Add bacon or sausage.

Veggies. Mix in diced bell peppers, green onions, broccoli florets, or corn.

storing info

STORE leftover casserole in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.

FREEZE it for up to 2 months. Thaw, if applicable, and reheat.

Reheat. Reheating your Crockpot Hash Brown Casserole is a cinch! Preheat your oven to 375°F and reheat for 7-10 minutes, or until it’s warmed through. 

Or reheat it in the microwave until heated thoroughly. The time will vary depending on your microwave.

    1. You know there’s other meat to substitute in place of pork. Instead of making a Karen comment, make them using a meat substitute and post your results.
