You need a crock pot to make this slow cooker hamburger hash brown casserole.

If you are in the market for a new crockpot, I love this casserole crock pot.  It is perfect for casserole style slow cooker recipes like this one.

I bought mine on Amazon,and I love it. It is perfect for the Holidays and really year round.

Plus, it is just so pretty. We can still enjoy all our favorite casserole recipes without ever turning the oven on.

If you prefer a traditional style crock pot, I recommend one of the Ninja Cookers. I love these because you can brown the meat in the same pot.

It really cuts down on clean up and that is a plus for us busy moms. It is so nice just having the one pot to clean and not worrying about an extra pan to wash.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

This is especially helpful during busy weeks of school and activities. I’m all about crock pot liners.

If you do not use crock pot liners, I recommend using cooking spray to help with clean up in the slow cooker.

Tips for hamburger hash slow cooker recipe:

This recipe calls for diced onion. One of my favorite time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions and peppers.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

  1. The soup is on the ingredient list, but not in the instructions. I’m assuming it gets mixed in with the other ingredients after browning the ground beef. Is this correct?


  2. I want to try it, but all I have is a 6 qt. cheap crockpot. Could this be made and put in the oven?

  3. I think that the Cans of Mushroom soup are supposed to be added to the crock pot with the rest of the ingredients, but I don’t see it in the steps listed above. Just wanted to share it in case you need/want to update above! 🙂

  4. You left out the soup but will assume it goes the only place it can go is with all of the ingredients when mixed together

  5. Sorry about that! Yes, you are correct. The cream of mushrooms soups are stir together with the other ingredients. I have corrected the recipe on the website. Thanks!

  6. Yes, it will still work great. I would reduce the cook time by 1-2 hours since the crock pot won’t be as full. Thanks!

  7. What do you think the temp and time would be if we wanted to make it in the oven?

  8. I would cook it at 350 degrees F, cover it with foil and cook it for 40-50 minutes. I would remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of the cook time. I hope you enjoy it!

  9. Family member can’t have onions. 🙁 Wondering if I could add something else? Maybe green beans? Thanks!
