Hash Brown Slow Cooker Potato Soup
I love the ease of a slow cooker for busy weeknight meals. What’s even better than the help of a slow cooker is products that are healthy, but already prepped for you. This makes getting your recipe ready even quicker.
Less time prepping means more time with what’s important, spending time with your family.
Simply Potatoes makes slow cooker recipes a snap. All you do is cut open the bag of Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and add them to your recipe. There’s no peeling, slicing or dicing. The potatoes are recipe ready!
Bonus, Simply Potatoes are made from fresh potatoes and never frozen. You can taste the freshness and flavor really shines through in this recipe.
Hash browns are one of my family’s favorite foods. We enjoy them for breakfast and in casseroles.

Hash Brown Slow Cooker Potato Soup Tips
- First, if you don’t have a slow cooker, you can make this stovetop in a large pot. Add your ingredients to a large pot. Then, cook the potatoes on simmer for 2 hours.
- As well, change up your soup by adding one cup each of corn and/or ham and 1/2 cup of celery.
- Finally, Simply Potatoes in the refrigerated dairy section of your grocery store. They’re in the cooler next to the eggs at my store. (Simply Potatoes are really better than frozen hash brown potatoes. Therefore, I highly recommend them. However, you can use frozen.)

Can you freeze this delicious soup? I’m the only one in my household and I really enjoyed this recipe but I’ll like to freeze part of it for later.
Great recipe! I didn’t have heavy cream so I subbed a block of cream cheese and a 1/2 c of milk. It was delicious… I added real bacon bits and it seriously tasted just like outback’s loaded potato soup.
Can I use half & half if I don’t have heavy cream?
Lori Hughes says
I made this last night for my family. My son just kept saying how good it was. I’m making it again for a work party today. It is delicious! It has such depth of flavor. You had me at heavy cream!❤️
This was so yummy! Tastes very much like Stuart Anderson’s Cattle Company’s baked potato soup but SO much easier! Thanks!,
Barbara Niebrzydowski RN says
My schedule these days is so busy, I have to do crock pot recipe pretty often. This was so creamy and good that my picky husband was impressed. I made on change but my husband hates onion, I precooked then so they would pretty much disintegrate and he wouldn’t find one.
I used to do this when my boys were little. I’m sure my mother did it when I was little too. lol Thank you, I’m happy you liked it.
Soooo good and simple to prepare but certainly doesn’t skimp on depth of flavor! This is such a great soup! Rich and flavorful!! ♥️
Thank you! You’ve got me craving it now!
They didn’t have the hashbrowns so used the diced potato version. Blended before I added the cream mixture. Added garlic powder and a bit of paprika. Turned out thick and delicious. Topped with cheese, bacon and a little sour cream. Awesome on this snowy day
Ashley Bertram says
Very easy! I have been eating it for 3 days now. I added garlic powder and onion powder for more flavor.
Do I need to change anything if I use frozen hash browns? My store was out of the simply potato kind.
Sheryl Kay Bryan says
My store was also out of simply potatoes, so I tried the frozen ones. When I made this with simply potatoes it was fabulous. Seriously not as good with frozen. Glad I made it the correct was first!
Dynamite! Added a touch of nutmeg but otherwise played by the rules. Doubled the recipe and it was SOOOO Good! My soup-hating son even loved it. (Adding bacon helped!). I will for sure make this again.
My slow cooker doesn’t have a medium temperature. So do I use low or high for the last 30 minutes?
Turn it to low
I made this for a church gathering and it was a hit! I omitted the flour because I was in a hurry and it was still thick and creamy!
Annette Rink says
I have made this many times over the last 3 years. I serve it with warm crusty bread.
It’s one of my favorites too! Thank you for sharing!
Do you whisk the cream and flour over heat?
Can you use frozen hasbrowns in this recipe?
Debbie C says
Hi! Just a quick question. Are the 8 servings 1 cup each?
Thanks in advance!
More like 2 cup servings
Can coconut milk be used in place of the heavy cream?
Yes, it won’t be as creamier, but will be healthier! 😉
Can I use regular frozen hash browns?
This soup was so easy to make and went over well with the family. I cooked mine for 4 hours because I got a late start. Will definitely make this again.
K Creamer says
Will this work if cooked on a low setting for 6-8 hours??? I want to be able to start it before work and leave it all day.
Yes, use the lowest setting. It will work beautifully.
Do you whisk the flour & heavy cream over the stove or just in a bowl?
Yes, in a bowl, not on stove
I’m so delight I’ve found a easier recipe for a potato soup . Going 2 try this for Thur. nights dinner party . Thanks for the recipe !!! Peace-Out Linda
Cis Burghard says
Use 1/2 cheddar & 1/2 smoked gouda…if heavy cream is not an option, you can use 2 cans of cream of celery soup
If I want to add broccoli how much longer should I cook this? Or will the 3 hours be enough?
3 hours should be plenty of time to cook broccoli florets
steve caldow says
hi or low setting’s?

Vickie Duncan says
I just loved the quick and easy (sometimes lol) recipes especially this one
Don’t know when you find the time with Wesley and those 2 sweet boys
Thank you for taking the time to share them
It’s a struggle most of the time, Vickie! But, I do love doing this. I’m all about some easy!
I’m in the process of grating a 50lb box of potatoes into hash browns…This soup recipe looks fantastic and will definitely use up some of these hash browns. I’m going to use your suggestions of adding ham and celery…YUM!
I just noticed your giveaway -I’m always a day late and a dollar short! I found you through the Weekend Potluck Linky party…Really glad I did!
