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

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

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!


I will be joining the fabulous parties and blogs on my side bar and:
