  • 1
    Spray a 5 -quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 8-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic in butter, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes or until translucent and soft.
  • 3
    In large bowl, stir onion mixture and remaining ingredients until well combined.
  • 4
    Place in slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 5 to 6 hours.

  • Make them in the oven—spread the mixture in a greased 13x9 glass baking dish. Slide into the oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until melty & bubbly. Sprinkle with some seasoned coarse bread crumbs or panko tossed with chopped green onion for a crisp topping.

Expert Tips

  • Taking the time to sauté the garlic and onion at the start is a fundamental technique for laying the groundwork for excellent flavor. Both garlic and onions are called aromatics for a reason: they not only taste good but their appealing aroma beckons everyone to the table.
  • Using the right potatoes, russets in particular, are high in starch, make a hash brown dish hang together. The refrigerated shredded potatoes are convenient, but it’s a breeze to shred up your own.
