One of my fellow bloggers lovingly referred to me as the “Crock Pot Queen” the other day. I giggled to myself and thought well I think that crown fits so I’m going to wear it with pride. I adore my crock pot, slower cooker whatever you want to call it!

It makes life so much easier. I can throw things in, walk away and go about my business especially during the week or when I’m hosting an event. It takes the “work” out of meal time!

Slow Cooker Cheesy Potatoes ~ Easy Creamy, Dreamy, Cheesy Potatoes!

There’s only one instance that I don’t like it. That is when I’m stuck inside all day smelling the amazingness wafting out of it. It makes you hungry all day long! My friend that is a stay at home mom said she couldn’t use hers very much because of this reason. I’d have to say that might be the one time I don’t use it. But even stay at home mom’s need it when they are driving taxi and getting kids to all their activities all day long right?

I remember my Mom saying that she needed a hat that said “Taxi” on it when we were in junior high and high school. Looking back I think I’d support this claim. Living on a farm she was always driving us in and out of town to our different activities. Bless her heart!

  • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes)

    Julie are you kidding me with these potatoes? Seriously they are insane!!!! I want!

  • Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl

    Incredibly delicious and cheesy galore. I’m in heaven!

  • Renee@Two in the Kitchen

    These look so yummy Julie!! I love crockpot dishes!!

    • Julie Evink

      Me too Renee! Such a lifesaver!

  • Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes

    Oh goodness..your food always looks So good!!! And tempting!! Cheese, potatoes, crock pot…pretty much all of my favorite things in one post.

  • tisha

    Why can I not access the recipe?

  • Amy | Club Narwhal

    Julie, I am dying a little over here looking at this cheesy goodness! Potatoes are my favorite but I’ve never tried making them in a crock pot. That needs to be remedied immediately, obviously 🙂

  • Theresa

    Can fresh potatoes be subbed for the frozen hash?

    • Julie Evink

      I’m not sure since I’ve never tried it like that! If you do try it like that let me know how it goes!

  • Dan

    My father is allergic to chicken. What would you substitute for the cream of chicken soup???

    • Julie Evink

      Cream of Mushroom would probably work!

      • Dan

        Do you think cream of cheddar soup would make it too cheesy??

        • Julie Evink

          It was really cheesy to begin with so I would worry about that. You could leave some of the shredded cheese out unless you thought it needed it at the end!

    • Sherri

      My hubby doesn’t like Cream of Chicken so I substitute Cream of Onion and leave out the onion flakes.

  • Cathy@LemonTreeDwelling

    These DO look comforting! I could use a GIANT bowl right now….seriously yummy, Julie!

  • Starla J

    I have cheesy potatoes in the crockpot right now. I hope it’s as yummy as it looks. Thanks for sharing!

  • Chelsea R

    Why cant I see the Recipe?

  • Faith

    Can I add chicken to make a meal of it?

    • Julie Evink

      I haven’t ever tried it like that but I would think you could, just watch the cooking time and make sure there is enough liquid!

  • Linda

    Made these several times. Yummy. Last time I used O’Brien potatoes and added about a cup or so of some small cubed ham. I bought some 1/4″ thick ham slices at the local deli counter and diced them up. Wow!!! I think the next time I will try some cubed or perhaps even some canned chicken (not raw). Of course everything goes better with cheese!!! This recipe just lends itself to so many different additions. Thanks.

    • Julie Evink

      Those are wonderful suggestions Linda!!

  • Beachgirl

    These were a hit at dinner tonight! Everyone kept commenting on how yummy there are, thanks for the recipe 🙂

  • Krystal

    Making these for a surprise party tonight. Hope they turn out great! I am, however, using fresh cut potatoes versus the frozen!

    • Julie Evink

      Let me know how they turn out Krystal!

  • Emily

    Have you ever not thawed the potatoes and increased cook time?

    • Julie Evink

      No I haven’t Emily but I would think this would work fine.

  • Megan

    I just made a version of this, used fresh potatoes and cream of broccoli instead- AMAZING! I cooked on high for 5 hours and it came out deliciously! Everyone loved it 🙂 thanks for the recipe! I just used what I had to substitute and it still turned out great!

  • Debbie

    I made these cheesy potatoes for Thanksgiving and they were so good! I’m making them tonight for! I dinner! I’m going to make them this way from now on!

    • Julie Evink

      So happy to hear this Debbie! Enjoy!

  • Linda

    I love, love these cheezy potatoes. How do you think I could get that cornflake topping on the crockpot potatoes. I thought I could just toast the cornflakes and butter in the oven and when the potatoes are done in the crockpot, just sprinkle the topping on. What do you think?

    • Julie Evink

      I think that would work fine!

  • Michelle M.

    I am planning on making these for Christmas, but I bought the shredded hashbrown potatoes. Would that work or should I get the diced? These look amazing!!

    • Julie Evink

      I’d just watch the cooking time and check it towards the end.

  • Jessica

    Did you ever find out how it turns out using fresh potatoes instead of frozen ones?

    • Julie Evink

      Someone else commented they used fresh and cooked on high 5 hours.

  • Shirley

    Oven is not working, so this will be great for my Christmas dinner, along with ham in the crock pot.

  • Janelle

    We are going to double the recipe tomorrow. Any suggestions on cooking time?

    • Julie Evink

      I’d think 1-2 hour additional cook time would be fine.

  • Kristina

    I need to double this recipe. Will it fit in a normal large sized crock pot? Also I am using fresh potatoes, how many do I use please?

    • Julie Evink

      I would think a crock pot about 6 quart would work just fine. As for the fresh potatoes I’m not sure how many you’d need since I’ve never made it like that. Sorry!

  • Kirstin

    Can I freeze these ingredients together ahead of time? Sorry if someone already asked this. :/

    • Julie Evink

      I haven’t tried this, but if you do it do not thaw the frozen potatoes and then refreeze them.

  • Katie Stewart

    these look incredibly delicious!!! I can’t wait to give it a try!

  • Bryanna

    Forgot sour cream at store… can I skip it?? Add more soup?

  • Jessi

    I’m going to triple this recipe, how long should I let this cook for? And if I’m substituting the onion flakes with an onion will one medium yellow onion be enough? Thanks!

  • Jessi

    I’m going to triple the recipe, how long will should I plan to let them cook?

    • Julie Evink

      I would just add a hour so 5-6 hours total!

  • Lizanell Boman

    Have you ever used your magic mix for a dish like this? I wonder how it would work in the crock pot…..

    • Julie Evink

      Magic mix? I make it in the crock pot.

  • Dana

    These look so good, I almost licked my screen! But after accidentally licking a bakery window in NYC, I try to keep from doing that. Long story…

    I can’t wait to make these!

  • Amanda

    Can I use shredded potatoes instead? Will that effect the cooking time?

    • Julie Evink

      I’ve never tested the recipe this way but I’m sure you can. I don’t think it would change the cooking time.

  • erin

    Worst ever pototoes! Cooked for 5 hours + In the crock pot. some cooked while other pieces were so hard and undercooked. Big let down these were. ?

    • Julie Evink

      I’m sorry to hear that Erin. I’ve made them multiple times according to the directions and never experienced any problems.
