Take-out Tueday, Slow Cooker Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes

You might want to keep this in mind for the holidays, it is cheesy, dreamy, easy, good, made in the slow cooker, it will bake happily away all day and keep your oven free for other goodies

You can even assemble it the day before, place your crock pot vessel in the refrigerator and plug it in the next day

The hardest part of this recipe is slicing the potatoes, BUT you don’t have to peel them

I cut the ends off and tossed them aside to keep things uniform, but you can certainly use them if you like. Carefully cut the potatoes into very thin slices

Make the sauce by mixing the soup and sour cream. Add a dash of Worcheshire for a flavor boost if you like

I handily had a pint container of sour cream that was half empty, so I was able to add the soup to the remaining sour cream and mix this right in the carton without dirtying a bowl

Layer potatoes into lined crock pot, about 1/4 of the slices, top with 1/4 of the sauce mix, 1/4 of the cheese and sprinkle with seasoned salt and freshly ground black pepper

Repeat 3 more times

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours

You will be a rock star!!

I adapted this recipe from Corey at Fresh Family Meals, thanks Corey!

*I have a standard 3 quart slow cooker, and could have fit one more layer in to make 8 servings.  If you have a larger slow cooker, you can easily increase this recipe for a crowd

To serve, use a sharp knife to cut down through the cheesy top crust and spoon out in sections so everyone gets some of the top crust

Now, I never said these were light and healthy, I just said they were fast and easy!  The good news is both of these potato dishes are so rich, a small serving is very satisfying~

Pin now for the holidays!

Note: do yourself a huge favor and get some slow cooker savers. 

These plastic bag style liners fit both standard and large oval slow cookers, and if you have leftovers, just lift the bag out and twist tie the top shut and the bag is ready to go straight to the refrigerator. Food is put away and there’s no pot to scrub!

I get mine at Bed Bath and Beyond, 8 liners for $4.99.  Look for them in the small appliance section, near the slow cookers

Thanks for stopping by!

    Love the recipe. Go to the grocery store and buy an inexpensive madelaine (spelling ?) to slice your potatoes. You will not be sorry – much, much MUCH easier!
