Loaded Hash Browns

  • Servings: 8

Thawed hash browns form an easy potato base that's "loaded" with sausage, onions, cheese, and veggies for casserole comfort in your slow cooker. Take it to your next potluck and watch it disappear. Use a silicone or plastic spoon to stir food gently at the end of cook time and for serving. You will minimize the chance of nicking the liner. Cleanup is no-fuss with slow cooker liners. Just cool your slow cooker completely; remove the slow cooker liner and discard.
