Hamburger Hash – in the Crock Pot

No, this isn’t really a summer recipe, but it is nice to just throw something in the crock pot earlier in the day and know you will have a delicious dinner waiting for you when it’s time to eat with minimal effort on your part.

This quick and easy dinner makes for a good stick to your ribs, comfort winter time food but it was just as good on a cooler day this time of year!



These are the ingredients I used… at least I hope I remembered to include them all in the pictures!


I started off by washing and cubing the potatoes and placing them in the frying pan with the chopped green onion and a few tbsp. of olive oil to precook them a little.  I find that sometimes potatoes don’t cook enough in the crock pot.


While the potatoes were cooking I browned the ground beef in the microwave until it was fully browned and juices ran clear, then drained it and stirred in the garlic powder.

Next I whisked together both types of soup in a medium bowl and set aside.


I placed the precooked potato and onion in the bottom of my greased crock pot bowl.


Sprinkled the browned ground beef over the potatoes.


Topped it with the peas…


I added the soup mixture to the crock pot and stirred to fully coat everything.


Sprinkled it with 1 cup of the grated cheese…


And cooked it on low for about 6 hours.


Ten minutes before serving I sprinkled the second cup of grated cheese and let it melt on top.


Then I scooped it onto plates for the boys to enjoy for dinner.  Both of them loved it and look forward to having it again!
