Tips and Tricks!
Can I make these in the Oven? Of course you can! Instead of putting these into a slow cooker just put them into a greased 9” x 13” casserole dish and spread out evenly. Cover with tinfoil. Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until nice and bubbly and heated through. Remove foil and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through and cheesy is just beginning to brown.
Can I use shredded potatoes? Yes! Just beware that these will take a little less time to cook in your crock pot so keep an eye on them before they turn mushy.
Can I use fresh, diced potatoes? Yes, you can, but make sure you place them on a lint-free towel first to wring out any excess liquid. Also, add 1-2 hours of cooking time because frozen potatoes have actually been cooked a little bit.
How do I store leftovers? Let cool then place in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should lest for up to 5 days when stored properly.
How do I reheat leftovers? Place the amount of potatoes on a plate that you would like. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until they are heated through. You can also place leftovers in a baking dish and reheat in oven at 300 degrees.
Can I double this recipe? You can! Make sure you have at least a 6 quart crock pot to do this. It will be VERY full. Add a hour of time onto the cooking time.
Flavorful additions: Mix in your favorite flavors like crumbles bacon, sauteed onions, green onions, diced jalapenos, top with cornflakes or whatever you can think of!
