Helen's Slow Cooker Potatoes

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. 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.
