Notes

You may want to saute the onion and sausage before adding to the slow cooker.
If you substitute fresh diced potatoes for the frozen, you will probably need to add to the cooking time. The dish is done once your potatoes and onions are cooked.
The original recipe called for 1/2 cup milk, but many people said that it turned out too runny, so I changed it to 1/2 cup sour cream instead.

  1. I'm planning g on making this tomorrow but I will be at work for 8 hours will it be OK to cook on low for 8 hours ?
  2. Very disappointed cooking it for six hours was way too long. It had a burnt aftertaste. I will never make this again.

    1 star

  3. Super easy to make and very cheesy! It’s a bit soupy even with the sour cream (instead of milk as per original recipe) but still tastes great. I stirred a few times during the 6 hours I had the crockpot on low.
  4. I made this and it was fabulous. I used 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup mayo instead of sour cream(I hate sour cream).

    5 stars

  5. Not terrible but not great or even worth making again. We aren’t even saving the leftovers bc just really boring. I did toss some green beans on top to cook with it and that was a mistake too. Don’t recommend unless you like boring food.

  6. Absolutely delicious. I followed every thing on this recipe. I used a spicy sausage for some kick. I also used southern style frozen hash browns. It came out soo good. Next time I will add some bacon bits. 5 out of 5. Also don't stir it alot. Mix it one time after you add everything, then leave it be. Turns out great!!

    5 stars

  7. I followed your directions using sour cream and it came out looking like what you posted and was very flavorful and creamy. It was done at about 5 hours and I did stir it at around 3 hours. I may use cubed ham next time. We will certainly make this again.
