Slow Cooker Easy Cheesy Potatoes

At first glance, this dish looks like macaroni and cheese doesn’t it? I thought so too when I peered inside the slow cooker. It’s actually potatoes – hash browns to be exact. This is easy, cheesy comfort food. It’s literally just dumping your ingredients in the slow cooker and letting it do the rest of the work.

I didn’t even thaw my hash browns. I put a whole 900g bag of frozen hash browns in there along with two cans of cheddar cheese soup (yes, it exists!), evaporated milk and some green onions. Campbell’s makes a cheddar cheese soup you can use in this recipe. Grab two cans at the grocery store. No need to dilute it. You are going to put all that cheesy goodness right in there with the potatoes.

I served this side with some Dill Pickle Roast Beef (recipe coming soon!). We had some left over and ate them for dinner the next night too. John, who will never hesitate to tell his opinion on my recipes, gave his nod of approval.

Now, I’m wondering what other soups would work in this recipe besides cheddar cheese. Maybe Cream of Chicken or Cream of Broccoli? Hmmmm I’m interested in testing these out too!
