This is such a simple and great dinner (or even breakfast).  My middle son loves this meal and asks for it every week.  He loves it after coming in from a cold football or lacrosse practice.  It’s a great hardy meal for those cold winter nights.

How to Make Slow Cooker Hamburger Hash

I made this in the morning and put all the ingredients in my crock pot, then put my crock pot in the refrigerator. All I had to do was pull it out when it was ready to start cooking. This is a good amount for my family of 5 and I serve it with a fried egg or two on top for additional protein.

Ingredients for Slow Cooker Hamburger Hash

  • Ground beef
  • Frozen hash brown potatoes
  • Onion soup mix- I’ve tested this with cream of mushroom soup, but find the soup mix has a better flavor.
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Beef broth
  • Onion
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional- Fried eggs for the top.

How to Make Slow Cooker Hamburger and Potatoes

Step 1

Brown the ground beef on the stove and drain off the grease. Add it to your crockpot.

Step 2

Add hash browns, onion soup mix, chopped onion, and beef broth, salt, pepper and stir.

Step 3

Cook on low for 3-4 hours, stirring a couple of times.

Step 4

Add shredded cheese 30 minutes before serving.

*hint*- If you over cook this, the hash browns get really mushy.  It’s still delicious, but just a warning!

Here’s a BAD picture of the final product with a fried egg on top. It was dark outside, but wanted to show you what it looked like.
