How long do Crockpot Cheesy Potatoes keep?
These Crockpot cheesy hashbrowns will keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can warm them through in the oven at 350F until the cheese has melted to serve.
You can reheat them in the microwave if you are in. hurry, but they can get a bit soggy.
What’s the best cheese to use for potato casserole?
I like to use a shredded cheddar cheese for this casserole. It’s best to use freshly grated rather than pre-grated. Pre-grated usually has a coating on it, which makes the cheese harder to melt.
For the cream cheese, I prefer to use full fat, but you can use a reduced fat one if you prefer.
Can you cook hashbrown potato casserole this in the oven?
I love the convience of cooking this side in the slow cooker as it frees up oven space, perfect if you are planning to serve it as part of a big feast. If you prefer, you can cook it in the oven in less time.
Simply mix the ingredients and place in a large baking dish. Bake in the oven at 350F for around 30 to 40 minutes. If the top starts to brown, you can cover it with some foil.

Add everything to a large Dutch oven and cook in a 325°F oven for 30-45 minutes!

Ore-Ida sells bags of hash brown potatoes in 30oz. Did you find a bag that is 26oz or did you buy the 30oz bag and did not use a portion to make it 26oz?
You can use a 30 ounce bag, that will work just fine :)
If I double this and cook it on low, can I do it overnight for easter brunch?
This would be great with instant potatoes and brie.
Thanks for stopping by!
Can this be made with fresh potatoes instead of hash browns? What else should I change in the recipe if I use fresh potatoes please?
I have not done that before!
I was wondering that, too. I was thinking, if you shred the potatoes, I’d try 3 hours, because they aren’t frozen. But I’d squeeze the water out with a cheese cloth, or paper towels would probably work.
