Since we were hosting Easter dinner (midday dinner) and knowing the oven would mostly be monopolized by the ham, I decided to try making potatoes in the crockpot. I found this recipe. I used onion powder instead of an onion (because it was already late when I started prepping the night before). I also doubled the recipe and it filled my crockpot, right to the top.
They were very good, and I will definitely make these potatoes again!
Crockpot Cheesy Party Potatoes
2 lb. bag frozen cubed hash browns
6 ounces sour cream
10 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1 can cream of chicken soup (or mushroom)
1 stick butter (or half)
1 teaspoon salt (or a little less)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 medium onion, chopped fine (or 1/2 tbsp onion powder)
Thaw potatoes. Melt butter in large bowl, then add in remaining
ingredients,then potatoes. Pour into sprayed crockpot. Heat on low for 4-6 hours,stirring occasionally (esp. if your c/p is hot like mine). Last time I made this, I usually double this recipe for a group of 20 or so. You can also bake this in the oven with cheese on top. I think it is 350 for 45 min to an hour. This freezes well after mixing/before baking.
