Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 pkg (32-oz) frozen shredded hashbrown potatoes, thawed enough to break up some
2 cartons (12-oz each) sour cream
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp dried onion flakes
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 to 9 slices (depending on size and shape of cooker) American cheese
1/2 cup butter, cut-up into pats

In a large mixing bowl combine the potatoes, sour cream, soup, milk, onion flakes, salt and pepper; mix together well.  Layer in cooker as follows: potato mixture, cheese, potato mixture, cheese, potato mixture.  Layer the pats of butter over the top layer of the potato mixture.  Place lid on cooker and cook on high for 1 1/2 hours then turn to low and cook another 2 1/2 hours or until the mixture is hot all the way through, cheese has melted, and the potatoes are tender.

Yield: 8 (or 10 small) servings
