Slow Cooker COPYCAT Cracker Barrel Hash Brown Casserole

  • Cooking Time:

    4 - 6 hours on Low or 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours on High
  • Servings:



8 T. unsalted butter, divided
4 T. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. each, salt & pepper
1/2 c. whole milk
1 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. chopped onion
26 oz. frozen hash browns, shredded
8 oz. shredded Colby cheese

Love this when we go to Crocker Barrel, and so Happy to share the Slow Cooker COPYCAT Cracker Barrel Hash Brown Casserole with you. Enjoy!

  1. This recipe starts by making a simple roux – a mixture of butter and flour to thicken the sauce.
  2. Melt 2 T. butter over medium heat in a saucepan.
  3. Sprinkle in flour, poultry seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder and salt & pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Next, we’ll add liquids to create the sauce mix: Whisk all the ingredients in the saucepan and slowly pour in the milk. This will create a nice, thick paste.
  5. Slowly pour in the chicken broth and continue to whisk constantly.
  6. Bring the sauce to a boil then cook for 2 more minutes while continuing to whisk.
  7. Pour completed sauce into a 6-Quart slow cooker.
  8. Add remaining 6 T. butter and onions. Stir until butter is melted.
  9. Stir in cheese and frozen hash browns.
  10. Cover and Cook on Low for 5-6 hours. Cool slightly before serving.

NOTE: This recipe can also be converted to a vegetarian recipe by omitting the poultry seasoning, and substituting the chicken broth with vegetable broth.

OPTIONAL: If you would like it browned on top simply place in a baking dish and place under the broiler for a few minutes.

Serve and enjoy!

Happy Crocking!

When do you add the remaining chicken broth? You mention the milk going in, and then 2 tbsp. of broth to make the slurry, but I don’t see where the remainder of the cup of broth goes in. Thanks!

I don’t have any frozen hash browns. Could you use potatoes that have been shredded?

So, it worked! I’m happy to say it came out very tasty and we will do it again. It tastes quite similar to Cracker Barrel casserole. Here is what we did: -Mushroom broth instead of chicken -Fresh grated potatoes instead of frozen (its all I had) -coconut flour instead of the wheat -homemade “poultry seasoning” with fresh dried herbs The slurry looks a bit strange because coconut flour doesn’t absorb the same as wheat, and when using coconut flour you have to add a little extra liquid, about 1/2c for us. The fiber content of coconut causes it to pull… Read more »

Make this recipe for my first picnic with future in-laws… it was a hit! Made a double batch and still only took about 5 1/2 hours to cook. Was nevous at first because it looked “dry” at first when I added all ingredients to the crock pot but they blended so perfectly as it cooked. This is my new favorite recipe.

What if you don’t have milk? What could I use in place of it?

I just bought the Holiday addition for the Fa La La Lasagna on the front.

The Receipt is not in it. Am I looking in the wrong spot? I am looking under “main”. I don’t see it anywhere in the magazine.
