Slow Cooker Cheesy Hashbrowns
This Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole is great as a side dish or a yummy breakfast.
It is so hot here in Virginia. For the past week or so it has been over 100 degrees.
I am trying inventive ways not to use my oven just to keep my house cool. We have been using the grill a lot lately. We have been cooking extra stuff to have leftovers we can microwave warm when we get hungry. I have also been making sandwiches and other foods that do not require any oven time.
I made this cheesy Hash brown casserole in my slow cooker to keep the house cool. We had it with some burgers. I then heated it up and we also enjoyed it for breakfast. It is very versatile and tastes pretty good too.
