As a four-generation Idaho family, we love our easy cheesy potatoes. I have served this cheesy potato recipe for weddings, family dinners and more. These company potatoes have become a favorite for many. —Karla Kimball, Emmett, Idaho


  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (32 ounces) frozen cubed hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided


  1. In a 4-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 6 ingredients. Stir in hash browns and 1-1/2 cups cheese. Cook, covered, on low until potatoes are tender, 4-5 hours, sprinkling with remaining cheese during the last 5 minutes.
Test Kitchen Tips
  • Looking to cut sodium? Purchase lower sodium condensed soup and reduce the salt to 1/4 tsp. These cheesy potatoes will still taste amazing.
