We use red potatoes in our recipe Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes, but you could use other potatoes. Here are a few options –

  1. Russet Potatoes – They are also known as Idaho potatoes. Great for baking, mashing, and casseroles.
  2. Golden Yukon – These potatoes are a version of a white potato. Their golden flesh has a delicious buttery taste.
  3. White Potatoes – These are also known as an all purpose potato. They have a yellow or white flesh.
  4. Fingerling Potatoes – They are small, but still work. You can even leave the skins on.

How long do these slow cooker scalloped potatoes need to cook?

After you get these slow cooker scalloped potatoes in the slow cooker, then the slow cooker will do the rest of the work for you.

They cook on high for about 3-5 hours or on low for 7-8 hours.

If your potatoes get done before the rest of your meal is ready, no problem. Just turn your slow cooker to the “warm” setting and you’ll be fine for another hour.

You can serve these potatoes right out of the slow cooker, or transfer them to a serving dish. And if you are lucky enough to have leftovers, they store great in an airtight container in the fridge.

    I made this yesterday. Was a family hit even with a little one who does not like potatoes very much. I added extra cheese, black pepper, and a little hot sauce just to punch it up a little. Next time I will fry bacon and crumble on top when it is dished up on a plate. Great recipe! Fast, fun, easy, and not messy.
    • Here is a cream soup substitute I found online.... INGREDIENTS 2 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons flour 1/2 cup chicken broth 1/2 cup milk (I used 1%) 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper DIRECTIONS In a small sauce pan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and let cook for 1-2 minutes. Slowly stir in chicken broth, then milk. Whisk until it begins to thicken. Let it simmer for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
