My husband works nights every weekend so I can put this on the night before and he has a warm breakfast while I sleep in after working week days! Also, we are both diabetics so this fits in quite well with all of the nutritional counts for us.

it is recommended to eat 300-400 calories for breakfast, 272 is below the recommended. Lighten it up with 1% or Skim milk if this is to high calorie count for you. I haven't made this but it does look delicious.

Wow! Great and easy recipe. Loved the kick using diced jalapeno peppers.

Not a fan, it was bland even though I added seasoning and used hot green chillies. I much prefer crispy hash browns.

I love any meal that can be thrown together in my slow cooker. This was another winner in my book. I let the hash browns thaw at room temperature first. They weren't soggy at all.

Turned out delicious. I agree that 7 hours would have been plenty, and next time I'll use fewer potatoes. I followed Grit's advice to thaw and use them at room temp and they weren't soggy at all. I was unsure about the green chilies so I put them only on about 1/4 of it, to one side. Wish I had used them on all of it, as that part was the better of the two sections. Great dish - thank you Taste of Home!

This was absolutely delicious! Only thing I was used square hash brown potatoes, I stead of shredded. Used bell green pepper instead of chilies. Layered it according to directions and placed on the oven for 1 hour.Came out absolutely perfect in every way!!Highly recommended

Replaced the green chilies with green and red peppers.. For those having trouble with hash brownsbeing "mushy" or odd in slow cooker recipes.. it helps to thaw them first.. and put them in at room temp..
