Ingredients

  • 8 T. unsalted butter, divided
  • 4 T. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. each, salt & pepper
  • 1/2 c. whole milk
  • 1 c. chicken broth
  • 1/2 c. chopped onion
  • 26 oz. frozen hash browns, shredded
  • 8 oz. shredded Colby cheese

Directions

  1. This recipe starts by making a simple roux – a mixture of butter and flour to thicken the sauce.
  2. Melt 2 T. butter over medium heat in a saucepan.
  3. Sprinkle in flour, poultry seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder and salt & pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Next, we’ll add liquids to create the sauce mix: Whisk all the ingredients in the saucepan and slowly pour in the milk. This will create a nice, thick paste.
  5. Slowly pour in the chicken broth and continue to whisk constantly.
  6. Bring the sauce to a boil then cook for 2 more minutes while continuing to whisk.
  7. Pour completed sauce into a 6-Quart slow cooker.
  8. Add remaining 6 T. butter and onions. Stir until butter is melted.
  9. Stir in cheese and frozen hash browns.
  10. Cover and Cook on Low for 5-6 hours.
  11. Cool slightly before serving.

OPTIONAL: If you would like it browned on top simply place in a baking dish and place under the broiler for a few minutes.
