Recipe Box, Slow Cooker Triple Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

The other night HHjr was cooking steak bites {recipe below}

I offered to do potatoes and a salad

and got out my trusty slow cooker to help…

These potatoes are not only an easy side dish for any night of the week,

but are also perfect for solving the holiday challenge

of getting all your food cooked and ready at the same time…

Using a slow cooker keeps the oven free for other dishes,

like your Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham!

Prep is easy peasy, slice russet potatoes,

mix sour cream and condensed cheddar cheese soup, grate cheese

and into the pot it goes!

You can use russet potatoes or red potatoes,

you will need 3-4 red potatoes for each large russet potato

This recipe does not require a mandolin or bleeding knuckles,

just slice the potatoes thinly

Mix sour cream and soup

and season with a dash of Worcestershire,

seasoned salt and fresh black pepper

Grate the cheese~

I used Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar

which is basically a sharp white cheddar mixed with Parmesan

So you can make your own combo with white cheddar and Parmesan

or substitute any flavorful cheese you wish

Now all that’s left to do is layer the ingredients in the slow cooker

Spray your slow cooker well with cooking oil spray

or use a liner for easy clean up

Start with about 1/3 of the potatoes

and place them in an even layer in the bottom of the pot

Spread top with 1/3 of the cheese sauce and sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese

Repeat layers, and for the last layer,

top the potatoes with the grated cheese first,

then spread the remaining cheese sauce over all

Cover the pot and set it to low

In 7-8 hours you will have a pot full of lovely potatoes!
