Hamburger Hash Slow Cooker Recipe
A Simple One Dish Meal the Whole Family Will Love!
I have been a crock pot cooking queen lately….I swear my slow cooker has seen more action in the last few weeks than it’s seen all year! Juggling a toddler and a newborn has definitely limited my time in the kitchen. Needless to say, we’ve been eating a LOT of takeout but sometimes you just need some fresh home cooking…especially since all the take out adds up pretty quickly. So I’ve been working really hard on perfecting some slow cooker recipes that the whole family loves (did you see last week’s Slow Cooker Recipe Creamy Chicken with Bacon…it’s TO DIE FOR!)….and this Hamburger Hash Slow Cooker Recipe is another MAJOR hit with the family!
To keep my daily prep time to a minimum I like to freeze meats ahead of time so that it’s easy to pull them out and toss them in the crock pot (this is my favorite slow cooker). Once a month Hubs and I will go buy a bunch of ground beef, chicken, and a ham. We’ll split up the ground beef into 1lb portions and brown it up in a skillet, then we just toss it in a freezer bag and it’s ready whenever I need it for a quick recipe….it takes one step out of the cooking process on the day of and it guarantees me that I’ll always have these staples on hand for a last minute meal. We do the same with the chicken and ham as well. This way, when a melt down occurs (the kids or my own 😉 ) I can literally toss dinner together in about 5 minutes and get back to juggling two kids.
The nice thing about this Hamburger Hash Slow Cooker Recipe is that it’s packed full of hidden veggies….so Little Man thinks he’s getting a yummy treat and I’m happy because he’s getting all sorts of healthy veggies! You can even add different veggies if you want….peas are great (just add them in about 30 minutes before the recipe is done cooking)….even subbing out the red potatoes for sweet potatoes is yummy! I love that this dish can be switched up in so many ways….it keeps it from becoming boring and I can add it into our meal rotation more often. 🙂
Okay, enough talking and time for this delicious recipe!
