File this one in your comfort foods section because it is the ultimate comfort! You can serve it at breakfast or for dinner – whichever you want and whenever you want. I have made it for both, and it is wonderful morning or night It is so simple to assemble in the slow cooker and press start – perfect for busy days or when you don’t want to heat the whole kitchen!
My family loves when I substitute sour cream for the milk (I have had to do this many times). The sour cream with the sausage is a fantastic flavor!
It is also a great dish for any gathering or to take to potlucks. It will be a crowd favorite! We have a group of friends with whom we do a monthly potluck brunch once a month. I get requests for this recipe every time and there are never any leftovers.
1 32 oz. bag of hash browns – cubed or shredded and defrosted
14 – 16 oz. kielbasa sausage – thawed if frozen and cut into small pieces
1 small onion, diced
⅓ cup butter – melted
