How to Make Cracker Barrel Hash Brown Casserole

Like I mentioned before, this recipe is so simple to make. I’ve seen versions online that are oven baked, but I really prefer to make it in the slow cooker. That way I can prep it ahead of time and forget about it until it’s time to eat.

To make this casserole, all you have to do is follow a couple of simple steps:

  1. Mix the butter and flour together in a small bowl.
  2. Mix all the other ingredients together in a large bowl and dump into a greased slow cooker.
  3. Drizzle the buter/flour mixture over the top of the mixture.
  4. Top with more cheese, if you desire (why wouldn’t you?)
  5. Cook! Sometimes I make this overnight. Most slow cookers will keep things warm for a couple hours after they’re done cooking, so you can set your timer and have warm food ready whenever you wake up.
  6. Devour!!!

  1. Tried the cracker barrel cassarol today. It’s goopy for me too. We hate it. Sorry to julia we tried something new in our house its not a hit. But we will be trying others.

  2. I made this Cracker Barrel Hash Brown casserole today, but it turned out really soupy. 🙁 Any recommendations on what I need to change? Should I have defrosted the hash browns? I know the directions don’t indicate to do this, but maybe I should’ve made a logical leap.

  3. I made this a few days ago and it was a huge hit, next time I might have to halve the recipe or my husband and kids won’t leave any room on their plates for their vegetables! I had to use cubed has browns because the grocery store was out of shredded one and it was still really delicious.
