This recipe sounds delicious, but I am wondering about the cooking time. If you are going to wake up to these potatoes you would have to put them together in the middle of the night with a 4 to 5 hour cooking time. Do you think it would be alright to set the timer function on the slow cooker to start cooking later. I wonder about the safety issue with the sausages. This might be a better brunch dish. What do you think?

Mary, if you have a slow cooker with the WARM function, you can cook this overnight and have it kept warm until ready to serve.

I was wondering the same thing, but that’s a perfect solution! Thanks! 🙂

I have overnight guest arriving soon, and this appears to be the answer to a quick and easy breakfast. As all of your recipes are, it looks colorful and delicious.

What does “thinly sliced” in a recipe actually mean?
Because the photos show 1/4 or larger slices of sausage. I run into this often and thought I should ask.

I would appreciate recipes fully cooked in a slow cooker rather than partially cooked (if at all) for the photo of the finished dish. And are you gaining weight? I am with eating many of the slow cooker dishes.

Take a look at this one “Cheesy Breakfast Potatoes”; cheese, cream, condensed cream of chicken soup, sour cream, sausage. High in fat and salt. Are you feeding this to your kids with a couple of eggs or toast? Wow. Don’t think I’ll be making this one.

Chungah, (beautiful name), as a food blogger; how expensive is it to include the nutritional value with recipes? I guess there is a website that calculates this for you or do it myself, yeah that’s what I need to do.
BTW you never said this was a lo-cal recipe and I apologize if you find the tone of my comments harsh but yours is the only blog that I look forward to each time it arrives, in fact Damn Delicious is all I read!!
Thank you for a great job. Eat yah later ;0 Heather

The slices don’t have to be exact here – that’s the beauty of a slow cooker recipe. There’s a lot of room for forgiveness.

Am I gaining weight? I sure hope not! I work out 7x a week doing a combination of pilates, spin and Barry’s bootcamp, and I also eat in moderation to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Am I feeding this to my kids? I actually do not have kids. If you do not wish to try this recipe, that is completely fine. I did not mention that this was a healthy recipe by any means. It’s just one of those quick and easy recipes to whip up when having company over – perfect for Christmas morning! 🙂

Ha ha. I love your blogs, recipes and photos and also look forward to your emails. But I was wondering the same thing about how slim you are while this dish is so rich. Thanks for this response. I will be making this for special occasions only.

Chungah, I commend you on your responses to such comments. My kids have encouraged me to start a food blog myself however the commenter above is one reason I will not. I don’t understand why people feel the need to comment in such a way. There are millions of recipes on the Internet, why can’t people just move on if they don’t like the ingredients? And asking if you’ve gained weight from the way you cook is ignorant and rude.I’m afraid I would be unable to be so polite. I love your recipes and visit your site often!

I agree! People are rude and try to follow up with “but I love what your doing!”. If you want to stay slim while eating this type of food, it’s called “moderation” and “exercise”.

I feel the same I read recipes all the time and the commits and it is ignorant to ask over and over to the same recipe if this can be changed or that if you dont like something in the recipe leave it out BUT if the recipe is a cheese based recipe and you cant eat cheese why in the heck are you even looking at it NO THERE IS NO REPLACEMENT FOR CHEESE people think before you ask such stupid questions sorry for the rant but the rude lady above pushed me over the edge

Heather, my goodness, please keep negative comments to yourself!

Heather, your comment is wholly unnecessary. Please refrain from comments section if you are only going to be adding useless opinions with no bearing on the subject matter.

Heather- Wow are you judgmental. I would definitely feed this to my kids. Maybe not every week but what a nice treat every month or so. Its not going to kill them. I may find a way to make it a bit healthier if I wanted it more often. Why can’t you do the same? Or like you said: Dont make this one! You add nothing to the comments section by being rude to someone online that offers us nice recipes for free.

Heather, your comments are quite RUDE! This lady Ms. Chungah (spelling) is nice Enugu to post recipes here for everyone, not every recipe out there is going to be “healthy” actually, just about every single recipe out there you can alter to a more healthier version, her recipes could be a stepping stone, an idea of you wil!! Ms. Chungah I totally agree with Condy, I’ve thought about starting my own blog as well, as I am
A southerner, our food is definitely not known for being “healthy” and NO I am NOT 300 lbs sitting on my couch eating Bon bons. If people do my like the recipe, why not just keep scrolling? That’s what I do!! I just search for a different recipe, oh and I just LOVE the comments, “I made it jay as is EXCEPT” and then they start listing all the changes they had done, pretty much making a totally different recipe!! Smh!! Thank you for sharing your recipes!! I find them to seem very very GOOD. Can’t WAIT to try some!! Please continue to post!! And you are quite classy in your response to the negativity ma’am!! God bless ❤️❤️

This looks sinfully delicious! I wouldn’t have a problem waking up to this, either! 🙂

These look delicious, will definitely have to give it a go, i’ve been looking for these kinds of recipes where everything is just thrown in and left to become mouthwateringly good! I think they’d be great to wake up to on Christmas morning too, the chaos would start a little later that way.

Wonder how it would be to stir in some beaten eggs to your slow cooker cheesy breakfast potatoes?

That sounds like a great idea but without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. Please use your best judgment.

LOVE your website! My Mom always told me, if you don’t have anything nice to say………don’t say it at all. You my friend carry yourself with grace and class! Keep the recipes coming.

Since I don’t get hungry until after noon, I am thinking this will make a super yummy dinner. My hubby will love it if we have some scrambled eggs loaded along with some of these yummy potatoes into a tortilla. Yum, yum, yum. Thanks for another great recipe.

This looks delicious! Perfect for a set it and forget it addition to company staying over, I love my programmable crock pot!
It would be perfect with a fried egg on top too. Seems like a great breakfast for dinner choice too!
