This Crock Pot Hash Brown Casserole is Pure Comfort Food!
Today is the first day that school is back in session here in Orlando.
Although my kids aren't starting our homeschooling until next week, just getting ready for that is already making me crazy.
For all of us Moms, this time of year gets a little insane. AMIRIGHT?
That means we all need easy recipes to rely on or we will be tempted to order out every night. (And after all those school supplies, most of our budgets would dictate that that isn't a good idea.)
My slow cooker is my best friend this time of year. There is nothing that I love more than knowing that by mid-day, I've got dinner handled.
And you know what? I think we all deserve a little comfort food.
This Crock Pot Hash Brown Casserole is just the kind of family meal I need at the end of the day.

That recipe and slow cooker idea looks awesome. I am blown away by all the recipes and food that be created in a slow cooker. I don't have a slow cooker, but you give me such great ideas on how to use it..would love to be the lucky winner 🙂 Thanks!
Thanks so much! You would love having a slow cooker.
There isn't a link for the cream of celery soup recipe. Maybe it's because I'm viewing this on iPad?

I love Simply Potatoes products; I have some hash browns in my fridge right now. And I was just cruising amazon for a slow cooker. Mine is too small and on its last leg. Thanks for the recipe and for doing the giveaway!
Me too - such a time saver!
I thought I posted, but it disappeared. Sorry if this shows up twice! I have a package of Simply Potatoes hash browns in my fridge right now. Thanks for the recipe and the giveaway!
My old slow cooker's lid top broke off a while back, when the lid slipped off the counter, but I still use it because i haven't been able to get a new one. I keep burning my fingers trying to take the lid off by its sides instead of the lid top, wihch is no longer there! Lol! I despereately need a new one! I love to make beef stews in the slow cooker! 🙂
I would do the same! I couldn't live without my slow cooker.

Thanks Wendy! I just checked my email! I just emailed you my contact info! That's great news!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
This recipe sounds great and I can't wait to try it. However, there is no recipe for the cream of celery soup. Can one just use canned? I do prefer home made when possible.
There is a link in the recipe. I triple the soup and keep it in the freezer.

Can't print out recipe, just says Ingredients & instructions, nothing else
It should be fine now.
I am interested in trying the Simply Potatoes products. My crock pot is probably 50 years old...it belonged to my mother many years ago. Thanks for all the great recipes and for doing this giveaway. Blessings
My pleasure! It is amazing that your crock pot has lasted that long.
Sounds yummy! I can make a vegetarian version of this recipe!
It would be great with black beans! Or Beyond Meat crumbles which are really good if you can find them.
I sure would like the crock pot......I love youre recipes!
