100% yes you can. We do make this in the oven from time to time, but the crockpot has been one of my favorite ways to make it when we are short on time around dinnertime and we want something that is ready to go when we are.

To make it in the oven you do all the same steps as you would make it in the crockpot. You add all your cheese into mixture instead of separating it out.

You bake at covered with tinfoil at 350 for about 40-45 minutes removing the foil in the last 10-15 minutes of baking to get that cheese nice and bubbly.

  1. We have made this for years in my family but I make it even easier by using sour cream based French onion from the store. I must admit I always use shredded hash browns in mine makes it seem even creamier.

  2. I made these for Thanksgiving and no one could get enough. Would like to double for Christmas, will have more people, and bake in the oven since I do not have a crock pot large enough. Any idea what temp and for how long in the oven?

    1. I have only made it on low unfortunately. Low and slow is my method but you could try half the time on high and see how it works! I’m scared it would burn but I don’t know for sure.

  3. When this recipe is doubled, do you double all the ingredients, like the cheese? For example, can you get too much cheese or onion in there? And how much time would you add to the doubled recipe? I am making this for a large crowd and it looks just wonderful.

    1. Yes everything would need to be doubled in the recipe so it would get the right ratios. For time I would add at least another hour, but I’m not exactly sure as I haven’t doubled the recipe yet. I would just check it after the beginning listed time and check the potatoes for doneness.

  4. Making this potatoe dish this am for Christmas. We tripled everything except the cheese and butter. And smaller amount of butter about 1 stick and 3 teaspons. We ran out of the cheese we needed… We used 2 cups Chedder and 1 cup Mozzerella. We fried onions in butter also.

    We mixed in 3 containers then putting them all into a large roasting pan for last few stirs. Then we poured 1/2 into a 9×13 glass dish and a 9×13 metal dish. Then put the tin foil on.

    Baking it for 1.5 hours at 350 degrees.

    Then we’ll let cool a little stick in boxes and off we go. We have a cover for one but it is plastic. I’m thinking of leaving the tin foil on and putting a cooking sheet inbetween to bring to Christmas inside of a box with towels wrapped around them. Not sure we’ll see.

    What else has everyone done?? This is a fun recipe.

  5. Do you know how you could do this in pressure cooker?? How long would it cook I wonder and would it turn out the same?

  6. Hi, I think you are misleading saying that it is gluten free, cream of chicken up has gluten. Just thought you should know. Thanks

    1. I have never once stated this is gluten free. Pinterest stated it is gluten free, they pull the ingredients from our site and THEY are the ones that state that. There is no way I can change what their site states. Sorry if it is misleading but I don’t state that it is anywhere on my website.

  7. Actually, if you use Pacific cream of chicken – that brand of cream of chicken soup IS gluten free. Just an FYI, because I’m gluten free and can easily make this recipe. πŸ™‚
