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!

    I’ve never made anything like this, but it’s totally the kind of side dish that I’d be eating out of the slowcooker as a meal 🙂

      These potatoes are sooooo cheesy and delicious – it’s so hard to resist eating them straight out of the crockpot for every meal lol.

    Can I use fresh potatoes? Would I need to adjust anything else?

      I think using fresh potatoes would work, I’d just make sure to cut them small. I’ve never tried it, but would love to hear how it turns out for you 🙂

    Do you think you could double this and it fit in one crock? Need to feed about 15 people. And would you double the whole recipe or only certain parts?

      It would definitely work doubled, I just did that a few weeks ago. It will be very full, but it works. Also I’d recommend adding a little cooking time to it.

    Making this for a work pot luck. Could I assemble the night before? Would I need to adjust the cooking time if the potatoes have thawed a bit?

      You could totally assemble it the night before, and yes, I’d say that with the thawed potatoes I’d say it would cut the cooking time in half!
