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 cook with my crockpot pretty much al week. I Love mine so much. with a family of 3 adults (my dad lives with me) between him and my hubby they can eat on this for 2 or 3 days depending. I made a small batch of this and it was a hit and no leftovers!!! I made another batch today and added other things this time! I used a half a bag of the hash brown and a whole bag of cubed potatoes with onions and peppers(only thing I had on hand and hey, its a potato).I added chipped ham cubes since I didn't have enough polish sausage for the whole thing. not gonna hurt none. I used cream of mushroom soup AND cream of celery soup since I didn't have another can of mushroom soup. I also added (recipe ready chopped onions, green and red peppers, and parsley). I'm sure this will be just as good! I gotta sneak in veggies any way I can! oh and the cheese! on low for 8 hours should be done by the time my husband gets home tonight around 1am! and dinner is served for him!

    1. This sounds delicious 😋 TY. I have big eaters here to feed. Definitely will be making this soon
    2. Hey, I see it calls for one can of cream of chicken or mushroom, but I see in your comment you used a cream of mushroom and cream of celery. Do I need to cans or just the one? And if it is just the one why did u use two? Just wondering for when I make it. Thanks.
  2. Tried this making this today was great and easy to make. Did change one thing I used the potatoes instead of the hash brown potatoes. I will make this again. I used cream of mushroom soup this time I will try with cream of chicken soup 😋

    1. How many potatoes did you use for yours if you don’t mind me asking? i’m about to do the same thing & not too sure on how many i should dice :)

  3. Delicious! Even my picky teen liked it! I used turkey kielbasa, since we're trying to eat a little more healthy. Because I can't find diced potatoes, there was quite a bit of prep involved the night before: chopping onion, dicing potatoes, cutting the kielbasa. I had to do it the night before because I leave the house by 7:15 am! It was a lot to do after a long day, but worth it for the ready-to-eat meal on a very busy day. That morning I did saute the onion & kielbasa, which I liked, except that I feel like I smelled like onions all day long (co-workers said I didn't ;) ). I added a little more cheese since the bag was almost empty and it cooked longer than 8 hours, which may be why there's a bit of burned food around the edges. It was a hearty & delicious meal that didn't taste like 'every other crock pot' meal. I'll make it again!

  4. Love this recipe, its tasty, easy and makes great leftovers. I prefer to use cream of onion soup when I can find it (and last time went with cream of celery bc it was what I had on hand) delicious no matter what "cream of" soup is used. Thank you!!

    1. I always used beef smoked sausage in mine, and it comes out great! My family loves it, so I make it often. Also, I should mention, I always brown the sausage and onions when I make it.
  5. I see one of your amazon picks is the Taste of Home Slow Cooker cookbook. Is this recipe in that cookbook? And have you tried other recipes from this cookbook? I’m trying to decide if I should purchase this one as I’ve always had good luck with Taste of Home recipes. Thanks in advance for your help.

  7. slow cooker recipes are always the best. I have always been scared of releasing the pressure, an old timer cooker blew up when I was young and ruined the hardwood in the kitchen. I still remember the extensive floor refinishing my grandmother forced me to help with. The new slow cookers are easy to use and with your recipes, I feel like I am in heaven.

    1. No. She just says some people like to. I like the meat browned if it's going to be cooked in the crockpot.

  8. This is absolutely delicious! I cooked it on low for about 5 hours and the edges at the bottom of the pot were burnt. Use your nose and check it after 4 hours. It does thicken up in the fridge.

  9. Loved this simple recipe! Being from New Mexico I’ll be adding green chile to it next time!
  10. It looks gross no matter what you do. Don't bother. No one will eat it and if they try, it's just salt flavor. Not edible. Lee

  11. Didn't change a thing. It was terrific. Great on a cool or cold day. Thank you. I prefer this recipe to the 4 ingredient one.

  12. I just follow the directions and stick it in the oven, it turns out great and my family loves it!!!!

  13. Made it with diced potatoes, kielbasa, cream of potato and cream of chicken of coursecheese. Meant to use just cream of potato but it turned out fine. I browned the slices of sausage before throwing it in the crockpot on high for a few hours until the potatoes are done. I'd recommend it for an effortless work night dinner. Very simple to make prep took 25 mins at the most. You could do prep work the night before. 3/5 stars because of the sodium content, prep work time (the frozen potatoes could cut this down but then we add more sodium) and that's all. Honestly I'd say it isn't bad or good just okay. And that's okay! Not every dinner is the best but as long as my family eats ill take it! Thanks for the new dinner idea

  14. I made this for the first time tonight and although I like the recipe itself, 6-8 hours on low in newer crockpots it’s just too long. This was done at maybe hour 3 or 4 for me so it was ready much earlier than expected and was starting to burn on the sides despite my crockpot being oiled. Next time, I will plan to start it much later and plan for 3 hours. However, the flavors are good and my husband and I enjoyed it. He does not like onions so I omitted them, which is disappointing for me. I *might* try adding some French onion dip mix into the sauce mixture next time but it doesn’t need it.

  15. MY HUSBAND SAID THIS WAS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER MADE!!!! We both could have licked the slow cooker clean! However I did have to sub a few things: •I used turkey Kielbasa •I used a frozen onion seasoning blend since I didn’t have fresh onions. •I used only 3-4 red potatoes •I added for nutrition, half a bag of frozen cauliflower and a handful of frozen spinach! And I did sauté all of the ingredients mentioned above before adding them to the slow cooker with salt and pepper (cooked on high to get browning effect and to unthaw frozen ingredients- made sure not to fully cook) And then I added the cheese, sour cream and cream of mushroom soup (not cream of chicken) and salt/pepper per the recipe. But since they did receive some cooking I only cooked them in the slow cooker for about 2 1/2 hrs on high since I was in a hurry. But it turned out perfect! Next time I may just cook them in the slow cooker on low for about 4-4 1/2 hrs so that I can actually take advantage of the slow cooker. But this was awesome!

  16. This is a family favorite, in the instant pot. We use either chicken sausage garlic n herb flavored from Sams Club or Jalapeño smoked. We also add Italian Seasoning or others depending on the flavor of the day. It is quick when you don't have time for a meal and served with a small salad and bread on side, perfect! Thank you for sharing your version of this. I have not added the sour cream till recently and they like it. :)

  17. Would it be ok to add a couple of cans of white beans to the recipe? Or would that overload it too much? Would love you your opinions..thanks so much for the recipe!!

    5 stars

  18. I am making this right now. My question is does there need to be any liiquid added? I only used one can of soup with sour cream.
