Cheesy Gluten Free Hash Browns
Hash browns are just one of those foods that I can eat for any meal. Add cheese to it and BAM – instant meal. I still tend to eat them for breakfast, but they are good anytime!
This gluten free hashbrown recipe is designed for the crockpot. But scroll down and you’ll find some instructions for how to make them in a saucepan on the stove.
Are Hash Browns Gluten Free?
I’ve seen some crazy things on labels. Gluten in places you’d never think it would be. Should hash browns be gluten free? Yes. But are they always? No. Usually though.
Hash browns are just sliced potatoes. They should be safe in general. But if you buy a package, always check the ingredients. Sometimes they throw in some weird ingredients to help with taste, appearance and whatever else they deem appropriate.
If you have the right slicer, you could always make your own gluten free hash browns without buying them in a package! Sometimes, packaged hash browns are just easier – let’s be honest!
So just check the packaging as with everything else!
Do I Have To Make Gluten Free Hash Browns in a Crockpot?
Not at all! I prefer them in the crockpot, though, because I feel when it has a few hours to just sit, the flavors just infuse everything better. And the cleanup (at dinner time) is also easier!
You can cook the hashbrowns however you like, then warm up the cheese sauce in a sauce pan, add the hash browns and let them sit for 10 minutes. But, like I said, I much prefer the slow cooker!
How to Store Cheesey Gluten Free Hash Browns
Storing these cheesy gluten free hashbrowns is super simple! Just grab your favorite airtight container, load it up, and keep them in the fridge. They will stay fresh for at least 3-4 days if stored properly.
You can eat them cold or warm them up for leftovers. My favorite way to eat the leftovers is to make scrambled eggs and right before the eggs are done cooking, I will add some cheesy hash browns and mix them up. They will warm up as the eggs finish cooking and then breakfast is served!
How to Make Cheesy Gluten Free Hash Browns
The first thing you want to do is to grab your crockpot and make sure it is ready to go. Then you will want to layer the hash browns in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl, and mix well. Spread the mixture over the hashbrowns.
Cook the hashbrowns on high for 3-4 hours or until done to your liking. Open the lid 1 hour into cooking, and mix all of the ingredients together well.
