When I named this dish, I really wanted to call it, “You had me at potatoes.” Seriously, I could live off of potatoes alone, if that were a thing, and I think it should be. What’s not to love about the potato? It’s so versatile. You can slice it, dice it, shred it, boil it, fry it, bake it and crock pot it. I’m sure I could think of more things you can do with it but I’ll stop there for now. I’ll tell you that you’re going to want to eat this Slow Cooker Cheesy Ham Hash Brown Casserole before it’s even fully cooked, it’s so good. Ask me how I know? Hey, being the taste tester has it’s perks. It also makes me admit things I probably shouldn’t. The best thing about this recipe besides the delicious flavor is that you don’t have to do any slicing, dicing or shredding of potatoes. You’re going to use Simply Potatoes shredded hash browns to help get this in that slow cooker super fast!
These are your ingredients, plus the two cups of shredded cheddar cheese that I left out of the photo. I did such a good job and then forgot the cheese. Man. Oh well, at least I remembered the potatoes because they’re the star of the dish!
First, you’re adding two bags of Simply Potatoes shredded has browns to your crock pot/slow cooker. Easy. Just tear open the bag and they’re ready to add!
Are you familiar with Simply Potatoes? Our family has been using them for … so long that I can’t remember when we didn’t use them. Anyway, they’re fresh, never frozen potatoes that you can find in the refrigerated dairy section of your grocery store. They are easy to prepare because there is no peeling or shredding required. YAY! They’re made with real ingredients and are proudly made by the Crystal Farms Company. Crystal Farms is also known for great-tasting, high-quality cheese, eggs, butter and English muffins found in the dairy section. Here’s a yummy post I made with Crystal Farms.
Next, combine half of the cheese, the diced ham, onions and stir.
Add the remaining ingredients, except for the remaining cheese, you’ll use that for topping the dish at the end. Stir and cook for 5-6 hours on high (or the best setting for your slow cooker) or until potatoes are tender. Top with the reserved cheese and serve! It’s soooo good! We served this dish along with a salad. It’s also a nice side dish and is perfect for game day celebrations!
