Easy Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes With Cheese Recipe

Yum! 9

scalloped potatoes

Scalloped potatoes were a big hit in my house when I was a kid. Hot out of the oven -- yum. They're gooey, decadent, and the perfect side on a chilly fall day. I've made them a few times since I've been an adult, and they definitely stand the test of time -- still delicious. But the one reason I don't make them very often is: They're kind of a pain to prepare. And the cleaning? No thanks.

But not when you make it in the crock pot! Everyone knows, crock pots make recipes infinitely easier -- and this one's no exception. And hey guess what? They're just as delicious.

Do you mean a 1/4 of a cup??? Or 1/2 teaspoon. It sounds good though.

I don't think my crock pot will hold all that. I do think I will adjust and make this for Thanksgiving.

Sounds good, but all the measurements are messed up, can you please fix?

Robin Hartman

I think this recipe will be a hit at my house, after the measurements are corrected. :)

Lol! Love the measurements. I'll go make it in my bathtub since it's the only place it'll fit.

Huh?  The reason scalloped potatoes takes so long it the peeling and paper-thin slicing of the potatoes.  After that its pretty much layer, pour and bake.  Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see the advantage of cooking something for 3 to 8 hours in a crock pot that normally takes only 1 hour or less in an oven...

Some women have to work and fixing it in the crock pot means they can fix it the night before and plug it in the morning when they leave.
