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 Slow Cooker Hamburger Hash 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 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. 🙂

So, I went on pinterest with hamburger that needed to be cooked and eaten soon. I came across your recipe and looked over the ingredients. I had to make some adaptations as we are gluten free, and we are unable to buy canned soups due to ingredients in those. I also didn't have the energy to drag out the crock pot. I cooked the burger and chopped onion on the stove and reserved the juices. Made an "onion gravy" with the reserved juices, rice flour, milk, and added thyme to my gravy along with the onion powder. Poured all of this into an enamel roaster and baked it in the oven at very low heat - 225* for about 5 hours. The family LOVED IT! My 12 yo son can be hard to please sometimes. He wants this added to our regular rotation.

I'm so happy your family enjoyed this recipe. I'm trying to get away from canned soups as well so I'll have to give this version a try! Thanks for sharing.

6 hours in and my potatoes are still hard. I was concerned about using both a cream soup & diced tomatoes, since that can easily be a lot of sodium & not cook the potatoes. I've cranked it up to high and hope they soften up... looks like this will be tomorrow's dinner at best. Use the lowest-sodium ingredients you can find, or precook the potatoes!!

Hi I'm trying to figure out the cook time. One thing says 6 hours and the other says 4 hours. Thanks so much!

Since you're cooking in the slow cooker it can be 4-6 hours....4 hours if you cook it on high 6 hours if you cook it on low. Really you're just cooking it as long as you want based on how tender you want your vegetables.
