Similar to scalloped potatoes, but...well, different. I searched your site and didn't find anything with my ingredients, although there were slow cooker dishes with potatoes in it. Hope you like it. I got this recipe from an elderly neighbor when my husband and I lived in Baltimore, MD. It's entirely her creation. I've taken this dish to family affairs, church potlucks, and picnics. I always have an empty Crock Pot® to bring home.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes in a slow cooker. Combine American cheese, onion, soup, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Fill soup can 2/3 full of milk and stir into the mixture. Pour mixture over the potatoes and stir to coat. Sprinkle paprika on top. Cover and cook on High until potatoes are tender, 4 to 5 hours.


Cook's Notes:

You can also cook this on Low for 6 to 8 hours.

Add any one of the following, or combine some, to make the dish an all-in-one meal: cooked ham, cubed (I buy it at the salad bar already cooked and cubed--it's a real timesaver and inexpensive), leftover cooked sausage, cut into bite-sized pieces, bacon, cooked and crumbled, or broccoli florets.

Made as written and this was super simple and turned out good. This would be great to make for the Holidays when your oven is tied up with other things. The recipe did not specify to peel the potatoes so I left the skin on but I think most would prefer them peeled. Read More

This is a great simple recipe. I was crushed for time so I made these in the oven. They took about an hour. I used mild cheddar cheese instead of the American cheese cause that is what I had on hand. I will use this recipe again Read More
