Slow Cooker Sausage Potato Casserole


  • 1 (32 oz.) bag of frozen hash browns or fresh diced potatoes
  • 14 oz. kielbasa, cut into small pieces
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken or mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Slow Cooker:
    • Grease the slow cooker to prevent sticking.
  2. Combine Ingredients:
    • In the slow cooker, combine the frozen hash browns (or fresh diced potatoes), kielbasa pieces, diced onion, and 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.
  3. Prepare the Creamy Mixture:
    • In a separate bowl, mix together the cream of chicken or mushroom soup, sour cream, salt, and pepper.
  4. Pour Over Ingredients:
    • Pour the creamy mixture over the hash brown and kielbasa mixture in the slow cooker. Stir well to ensure even distribution.
  5. Add Remaining Cheese:
    • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the mixture in the slow cooker.
  6. Cooking Time:
    • Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. The dish is ready when the potatoes and onions are cooked through and tender.
  7. Check for Doneness:
    • Test the potatoes and onions for doneness by piercing them with a fork. They should be soft and easily pierced.
  8. Serve Warm:
    • Once cooked, serve the slow cooker sausage and potato casserole warm, spooning it directly from the slow cooker.
  9. Garnish (Optional):
    • Garnish with additional sour cream, chopped green onions, or fresh parsley if desired.
  10. Enjoy:
    • Dish out this comforting and hearty casserole, and enjoy the delicious combination of potatoes, kielbasa, and creamy goodness!
