1 30oz. bag of frozen, shredded hash brown
3 14oz. cans of chicken broth
1 can of cream of mushroom
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
1 pkg. cream cheese (I used low fat)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar (freshly shredded please)
In a crockpot, dump everything except the cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Cook for 6-8 hours on low heat. About 1 hour before serving, add cream cheese and cheddar. Cook about 30 more minutes, stirring frequently. Serve with extra sprinkling of cheddar and sour cream if desired.
So the truth is, I've already made this a couple of times, which already shows you how much I like it. I've included my additions/modifications in the recipe above. It's perfect for warming you up on a chilly day! Modifications can be easily made to this base to suit your own taste buds. I think I'm going to try it with some Rotel and pepperjack cheese next time.
