Crockpot Scalloped Potatoes
I make scalloped potatoes differently every time I make them, unsure of why. This slow cooker potato recipe takes more prep than I usually prefer, but it makes the cheesiest potatoes, so it is worth it, right? One of my tried and true methods are to simply layer the potatoes, butter, flour, and cheese, then pour the milk in.
My husband, like most men, loves his meat and potatoes. Especially for Sunday night dinner. He BBQ’d ribs, while these crockpot scalloped potatoes cooked all day.
We added a heap of veggies and had a Sunday night fest. There are 3 of us, with one being a growing teenager and there were still leftovers. I use the 6 qt crockpot.
What kind of potatoes do you use for scalloped potatoes?
The best potatoes to use when making Crockpot Scalloped Potatoes are starchy spuds, preferably russets or Yukon gold. Those starches will help to thicken the sauce.
