This is a classic recipe everyone will love. I make mine a little different. Instead of cream of mushroom, I use cream of chicken and instead of processed cheese I use cheddar. It's a must try that will become a tradition.

I love this recipe, but I have to omit a few things here. I don't use a slow-cooker, because I find that the "casserole" turns soupy. Instead, I bake it in a non-stick pan at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or longer. Also, I had to experiment with a few cheeses to get the right texture - less grease. What works well for me is sharp cheddar. If you still use butter, try something like I can't believe it's not butter. Less fat, still enjoyable!

This is a fantastic recipe. Very sinful and delicious. I recommend not only following the directions but using the right ingredients. It's pretty obnoxious to give a bad review based on your own inability to follow directions.

Very good! I gave this a 4 only because all of the cheese was a bit overwhelming. Next time I'll either add some meat to it and make it into a main dish or scale back on the sour cream.

Great quick receipe, however I made a few changes to make it more healthy,2 whole fresh garlic cloves, 32oz of Orta hashbrowns frozen,1 teaspoon paprika 1/2 cup of 2%milk, instead of the two cans of soup, two 6oz packages of 1. fresh graded cheeder cheese 1 mozzerela, and instead substituted mushroom soup to a homemade substitute: Ingredients: 1 tablespoon butter 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/2 cup low sodium chicken or veg broth 1/2 cup low-fat or fat free milk salt and pepper, 1 stalk of celery or 1/2 cup of fresh mushrooms. It taste which made this dish scrumptous ! Let it sit after 5 hrs of slow cooking, then let if sit out for about an hour to firm up and served.

This was fantastic! I used a can of Cream of Chicken & Mushroom soup, and I cooked the casserole for 6 hours on low so I could cook it overnight and have it for a breakfast potluck the next morning. I got so many compliments on it! Plus, it was really easy to make, which is always a plus in my book. =)

I served this at a potluck...I used fresh shredded potatoes. This was a big hit!
