Can you believe it’s August?

I’m slightly in denial or maybe a lot in denial. August means that the weekends at the lake are bittersweet because fall is looming just ahead. I do adore fall don’t get me wrong it’s just the dreaded months and season that follows fall that I’m not so excited about. Fall means great things. Apples, pumpkin, crisp &  crunch leaves, cool nights and crisp mornings. You get my drift.

It also means kids are heading back to school soon and they will resume their activities and busy schedules again so therefore Mom’s schedule will be full of those activities and hustle and bustle. This is the time we whip out the Crock Pot and truly embrace the ease it provides us in life. There is nothing better than taking a few minutes in the morning to throw your ingredients in and then letting it do it’s thing all day long. Then when you come home it’s like you had a maid and dinner magically appeared on the counter for you!


We can all wish we had a maid and butler right? I know I do!

The thing I love about this recipe is that it takes 8 hours to cook on low. Therefore I can throw it in before I leave in the morning and leave it. My Crock Pot automatically switches to warm after that and it’s perfect. I struggle with the 4-6 hour cook time because I don’t come home at noon! First world problems right?

The beauty about this is it’s a side dish so I can whip out another crock pot and make the meat in a different one and we are ready to rock and roll. Obviously you knew I had multiple Crock Pot’s right? In “Blog” Land I’m affectionately known as the “Crock Pot” Queen!

A few of my favorite recipes to go with these potatoes that are loaded with cheese and ranch are Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin, Crock Pot Cranberry Pork Loin or  Crock Pot Orange Maple BBQ Chicken!

If you are looking forward to busy school days or are just looking for the easy card this summer these potatoes are perfect either way!

  • amanda @ fake ginger

    My kids go back this week so I’m definitely on the hunt for crockpot meals. Adding this to my list!

    • Julie Evink

      Ooohhhh already?! Time to embrace the Crock Pot again!

  • Mary

    Julie: You read my mind, I have been thinking about making a cheesy spud recipe for a couple of weeks. These look fabulous (!!), so happy you uses fresh potatoes and not frozen. Bet your potatoes will be great warmed up the next day for lunch. Will make this week.

    • Julie Evink

      Thanks Mary! I hope you enjoy them. Glad we are on the same page for recipes 🙂

  • Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice

    This looks like potato perfection! I’ve never made any side dishes in the crock pot, but I definitely have to change this. Love the ranch and cheese together. Pinned!

    • Julie Evink

      Oh try the side dish in the crock pot! Cheese and Ranch are always winners!

  • Baby+June

    Those look great!

  • Cookbook Queen

    If these weren’t perfect enough, you had to go and make them in a crockpot — I can’t say no to crockpot! Love.

    • Julie Evink

      Ah yes, embrace the crock pot whenever we can! Thanks!

  • Stephanie+@+PlainChicken

    looks AMAZING!

  • Kathi+@+Deliciously+Yum!

    I am so with you! I’m still excited that we welcomed another summer month, but I’ve been avoiding to think about the season that is so imminent after our (usually) short fall season, ha. I absolutely love recipes like this one, especially on lazy weekends during the colder months. You had me at Ranch 😉

    • Julie Evink

      We don’t speak of that season! But yes lazy weekends after the hustle and bustle of summer sound amazing!

  • Thalia @ butter and brioche

    ooh looks delicious.. i swear cheese makes everything taste better!

    • Julie Evink

      Obviously! If there’s cheese you can’t go wrong!

  • Lauren

    These burnt for me. I don’t think there’s enough liquid. The soup, cream cheese, ranch packet, and cheese mixture is very thick. It needs some water or chicken broth or something so as not to burn. I don’t know if I will try this recipe again.

    • Julie Evink

      Unfortunately all Crock Pots heat different so sometimes that causes things to burn!

  • Cathy

    These look delicious! I’m adding them to the menu for next week.
