But you still need to feed your guests, or bring a dish wherever you’re going.

All you do to make these cheesy potatoes is mix a few ingredients and put them in a crockpot/slowcooker and set it and forget it. If you’re feeling extra fancy you can stir it a time or two while cooking, but I’ve done it both with and without stirring lol, and they turn out great either way.

You may have had cheesy potatoes in the past and noticed that there seems to be a greasy texture or layer at the bottom that pools up (kind gross, right?) … well that’s because the wrong type of cheese was used. I like to use a blend of cheddar-montery jack cheese, called cheddar jack. It works like a charm and really is the best cheese to use for these cheesy potatoes!
