Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Spray 5- to 6-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix bacon, onion, sour cream, condensed soup, green chiles, salt and pepper; mix well.
  • 3
    Carefully stir in hash browns and cheese; mix well. Transfer mixture to slow cooker, and drizzle with melted butter.
  • 4
    Cover insert with large kitchen towel. Place slow-cooker lid on top of towel. (This will prevent condensation from dripping onto hash browns during cooking.)
  • 5
    Cook on High heat setting 3 to 4 hours, rotating insert after 1 1/2 hours. Cook until mixture is heated through in center and golden brown around edges. Garnish with chopped chives.
  • Rotating your slow cooker insert halfway through cook time helps prevent casserole from getting too brown around edges.

Expert Tips

  • Substitute 1 lb cooked bulk pork breakfast sausage for the bacon, if you prefer.
