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.
