Cheesy Hash Brown Breakfast Bake

Holiday Recipe Header

As part of my Slow Cooking Through the Holidays series with Ginger from Crock Pot Recipe Exchange, I thought I'd throw in a breakfast recipe!  Plus, some of you are going to have a whole lot of extra ham after the Holidays and you're going to want some suggestions on what to do with it!  Well, here's one the whole family will love you for!

Cheese.........hashbrowns........you just can't go wrong here!  My family LOVED this Breakfast Bake 
(Even though we had it for dinner!  My husband went straight to the refrigerator after his first bite and said, "You know what these flavors would be great with?!" and then he came to the table with syrup!  Syrup?!  YES, syrup!  I tried his first and then drizzled it over mine too!  It was seriously delicious!  

If you want to make this for dinner, you could assemble everything but the frozen hash browns the night before.  In the morning, just mix them in with the rest of the ingredients, dump them into your Crock and turn it on! 

If you want to make this for Breakfast (like normal people, I guess!) then simply assemble everything before you go to bed, turn it on, and wake up to deliciousness!  Your family will be so impressed!

Cheesy Hash Brown Breakfast Bake

2 lb. Frozen Hash Browns
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 cup sour cream
6 eggs
1 onion, minced
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
8 oz. pre-cooked ham (I bought a ham steak)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Spray your crock with non-stick spray.
Mix together the soup, sour cream and eggs, salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Add the onions, ham, hash browns and cheese and stir until well-mixed.
(I almost forgot the cheese!  WHOOPS!!!!  How do you forget the cheese?!  LOL)

Pour into your crock.

Cook on LOW for 7-10 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.

Serve (with syrup!!!!) and Enjoy!

  1. This sounds very good! Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

    Have a great week.

    God bless and keep you,

  2. Do you use spray or liners more often in your crock? Just got some liners, and debating on what to use for certain things...

  3. I use liners more often that not. They save you from soaking and scrubbing! My husband thanks me greatly for using them!

  4. Lovely recipe. Mouth-watering I should say :) Thank you for sharing this one. Will definitely try it out.

  5. Mine didn't turn out. Are the hash browns suppose to be thawed first? I was thinking they should be but I didn't see any mention if it in your recipe.

  6. Cindy,
    Sorry it didn't turn out for you. Mine were frozen when I used them. Did it not cook all the way through?

  7. It never really set/formed into a solid casserole (maybe it wasn't suppose to) and had a few piles of liquid/grease.

  8. How long did you cook it for Cindy? What kind/size of slow cooker do you have? Did you double it? (Just trying to see if we can find a reason for you!)

  9. I looked on it at 7 hours. It was brown on the sides but very loose everywhere else. I cooked it longer but it never changed in appearance. I have a 6q crock pot and I didn't double the recipe.

  10. Maybe your slow cooker cooks at a slower rate and needed a few more hours. Sorry it didn't turn out for you!

  11. Can you use dehydrated hash browns? I have some Hungry Jack boxes that I'd like to use but don't know if they would work... I was thinking that I would let them soak in water first and then just do the recipe as directed?

  12. Annie, I have no experience with dehydrated hash browns, so I'm not sure!

  13. These look awesome, my hubby has been asking for hashbrowns...and we have chickens so there are enough eggs around here, not having to worry about breakfast is going to be great! I'll have to look for more of your breakfast crock pots. :-)
