Crockpot Smoked Sausage & Hash Brown Casserole...a fast dinner idea!

 

Hey guys! I’m just headed off to another trip…this time to PARIS! {I hope the red eye flight doesn’t kill me.} But wanted to check in with another amazing recipe! This time a warm, potato sausage crockpot meal! It’s easy, simple and super delicious! My kids gobbled this one up, which is sort of a miracle these days plus, this took a whole 10 minutes to throw together.

I snapped a few pictures of the process and to be honest, there really aren’t that many….because you throw everything into the crockpot and forget about it. But alas, because I love you, here lies all the photos and recipe! Scroll down to the bottom of the post for the printable version 🙂

{And if you have any tips for me surviving a red eye flight and/or getting comfortable enough to sleep on a plane, that would be WONDERFUL! Thanks!!}

Crockpot Smoked Sausage & Hash Brown Casserole...a fast dinner idea!

Smoked Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

 

Here lies this magical crockpot recipe. No secrets here; I stuffed my crockpot with a package of defrosted hash brown potatoes, smoked sausages, onions and cheese. Not a bad combination if I do say so myself.

To that, stir in my homemade condensed cream of chicken soup recipe {as listed below or as found in my Swiss Chicken recipe.} If you want to make this with an actual can of cream of chicken soup, feel free. Just make sure to add in enough liquid to get yourself up to 2 cups. So can of soup + water/milk/liquid of choice should equal 2 cups…make sense?

Stir this all together to get the potatoes and sausage coated in that sauce, cover and cook on high until everything is hot and melty! For me, that was 3 hours on high.

Add a little more cheese to melt over the top once you’re ready to eat and that’s dinner!

You see what I mean by easy?

Enjoy this tonight. Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

Smoked Sausage and Hash Brown Casserole

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients:

  • homemade cream of chicken condensed soup:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon paste*
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 32-oz. bag of hash browns, defrosted
  • 14 oz. smoked sausage, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. For the homemade condensed cream of chicken soup, melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Sprinkle in flour and whisk. Cook 1 minute. Stir in water and whisk to remove any lumps. Simmer until thick, then stir in milk and chicken bouillon paste plus the seasonings. Sauce should thicken slightly at this point. Taste and adjust seasonings. Set aside.
  2. Place hash browns, smoked sausage, onion and cheese together in a lightly greased crockpot. Pour over condensed soup and stir. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or until potatoes are soft and sausages are hot. Serve.
  3. *Chicken bouillon paste is similar to bouillon cubes, but in a paste form. It's found in jars right next to the boxes of chicken stock. If you don't have this ingredient, simply use either powdered or cubed bouillon {enough for 2 cups of liquid according to directions on the packaging} OR 1 cup of chicken stock instead of water and add an extra 1/2 teaspoon of poultry seasoning.

  3. Tips from someone who flew godzillions of long haul airmiles in a career that spanned 45 years.nOlive Bach flower remedy put 5-10 drops into one of those small bottles of water and sip regularly. I suspect the hydration is part of the results, but not all.

    Change into light loose clothing so you have nothing tight constricting flow of blood, energy or other body fluids, and you can move around easily.

    Walk around every hour (unless asleep) and do some stretching exercises as well.

  5. While reading the recipe, I had a wild idea of this being a breakfast type of meal, just replace the home made cream chicken soup with (?) number of beaten eggs, and maybe add some diced green & red bell pepper for color / flavor.

  22. Use nose canceling ear buds and a good comfortable and contoured sleep mask. Pick a window seat. Download some nature sounds and read a book. That usually does the trick for me. You might also consider a good neck pillow, another for lumbar support and compression socks especially if youre not in first class or business class. Hope that helps.

  23. Could u put in crockpot on low for 6 hrs?

    Reply
    • I need to cook this on low as I’m at work all day, how long should I cook for on low?

      Reply
  24. This looks like something that could encourage me to get out of bed if I prepared it and put the slow cooker on a timer! But I’m in the UK and can’t imagine our frozen hash browns being used like that. Ours are two-inch triangles of grated potato that are browned a little before they’re frozen. Are they like that in the US?

    Reply
    • No, ours are like half inch squares or completely shredded. You can try dicing regular potatoes into small squares instead?!

  31. I made this exactly how the recipe shows and my hash brows were mushy. Are they suppose to be like that?

    Reply
    • Maybe your crockpot cooks faster than mine? Mine were not mushy.

      Reply
  32. Can this be made on low overnight? Delicous by the way! 🙂

  37. I tried this a few weeks ago and it was tasty! My 4yo ate it without complaints (ALWAYS a bonus). I like the option for using canned (super quick and easy) or homemade (still pretty quick and easy and HOMEMADE!) soup mix. Thank you! I’m adding this to my lunch schedule this week again.

  38. Sound pretty good, but I don’t like onions…I also have to be careful any sausage I use doesn’t contain beef…since beef bothers my stomach.

  43. How long would you cook this in the oven for and at what temperature, if you don’t have a crockpot?

    Reply
  44. I make something similar (potato cass). Try adding a can of corn (drain it first). It’s great.

    Reply
  45. First of all, it’s not a crockpot- it’s a ‘slow cooker.’ Keep it simple: use canned soup. Rather than mushy hash browns, I prefer the appearance and texture of tater tots. Also, use red onion for added color and a little sweetness.

  46. Chicken or Beef paste is called Chicken Base in the stores. They come in small jars.

  47. Added this to my recipe book

  49. Just put this in the crock pot, using canned heart healthy cream of chicken soup enough water to make 2 cups as suggested. I also tried one of those Reynolds crock pot liners to help with the clean up. I will post the results when it’s done.
