Fall, the time of year when comfort food is at its best. And nothing says comforting more than a steaming hot pile of ooey, gooey cheesy potatoes! This cheesy potato recipe is super simple and fool-proof to make.
It starts with a bag of frozen hash brown potatoes. Stir in a few other ingredients and you’re done. After a few hours you get the most delicious, tender morsels covered in a creamy cheese sauce.
These crockpot cheese potatoes make the perfect complement to a homemade meatloaf, roasted chicken or just about anything really. Oh, and they taste even better the second day, that is if there’s any left over!
- 1 can of cream of chicken soup
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 32 oz bag of frozen cubed hash brown potatoes
- 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the soup, sour cream and melted butter. Stir in the salt, pepper and shredded cheese. Mix in the frozen potatoes.
- Spray crockpot with non-stick cooking spray. Pour potato mixture into crockpot.
- Cover and cook on high for about 3 hours or until potatoes are tender.

Can this be doubled?..if so what is cook time?
Hi Terra. It could be but your crockpot may not be able to hold a double batch. If it does, I’d cook it for at least 5 hours then adjust it as you need to.
What size can of soup do you need for this recipe?!
A 10.5 oz can.
Have to ever used whole potatoes cut up?
No, I’m sorry but I have not.
Yes! Fresh potatoes cut up works fine
Good to know. Thanks Jen!
How did you prep the whole potatoes? Just peel and cut up? Or was there cooking involved?
The recipe calls for a bag of frozen cubed hashbrown potatoes. No cutting needed.
How many servings are in this recipe?
Hi Leslie. It uses an entire bag of frozen hash brown potatoes so it makes quite a large batch. I’d guess it could feed about 8 people. Hope that helps!
Would I have to double this recipe to make this for 18 people?
Yes, definitely a double batch. You may need two crockpots though depending on the size of yours.
How big is your crockpot?
I’m pretty sure it’s a 7 quart.

Are you supposed to stir it in the crockpot a time or two during the cooking process?
Nope, no need to stir. Just let the crockpot do its thing lol.
Do I thaw the potatoes before putting them in the crockpot?
Nope, add them in frozen. Just make sure to break up any large chunks frozen together.
Have you ever added other things to this recipe (i.e., canned green chilis, buffalo chicken sauce, etc.) to give it a different flavor profile?
Hi James. No my husband is a very picky eater so I can’t get too crazy, lol. But the green chilis do sound like a yummy idea. Let me know what you try and how it turns out!
Could I make this dish on a low setting? And if yes then how long??
Sure, I would say it would take at least 6 hours. Crockpots seem to all run at different temps so it really would depend on yours.
Have you ever tried adding dried beef or cubed ham?
I have not but I imagine ham would work wonderfully.
Can I add the corn flakes to the crock pot recipe? Not sure if they will be crunchy or soggy.
They probably would not stay crunchy. 🙁
Not sure if you would know or not, but I’m planning to do a double batch in my Nesco roaster tomorrow morning, so trying to figure out what temp and how long to cook for….. just until the potatoes are tender and cooked through? We have to leave to go to church for our daughter’s baptism, so just trying to time it all out to cook while we’re gone. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
Hi Becky. I’m sorry I didn’t get to your question in time. I hope everything turned out ok for you.
Do you use shredded or cubed cheese?
Hi Crissy. Shredded cheese works best.
