Crock-Pot Au-Gratin Potatoes

Sometimes you just crave something creamy and cheesy. And this side dish recipe fits that bill to the tee. Fair warning ahead of time, this is not a diet recipe.

Nope not at all.

It’s got potatoes, cream and cheese.

So it is not a recipe I make often, but on special occasions (like Easter or a special Sunday dinner with the family) I like to make this recipe for Crock-Pot Au-Gratin potatoes.

The prep on these potatoes could not get any easier. You simply start with 6 medium to large potatoes (I like to use good old Idaho Russet potatoes) and peel them and slice them.

You can slice them with a mandolin if you want nice and perfectly sliced potatoes, but if you don’t have one it’s OK…you can just as easily slice your potato rather thinly (oh about 1/6th of an inch thick give or take) with a knife.

Then you layer those potato slices in a buttered crock-pot, drizzle that layer with some cream (oh my!), sprinkle with some fresh rosemary and a wee bit of finely minced garlic and a layer of cheese, then another layer of potatoes, cream, rosemary and garlic and cheese.

Next you simply cover your crock-pot and let it cook away for several hours until the potatoes are nice and tender, the cheese is melted and everything gets all bubbly and creamy.

Double…oh my!

As I mentioned these potatoes make a lovely side dish on your Easter table, but they also pair lovely with a perfectly cooked steak or lamb chops or any meat really.

I love being able to get this in the crock-pot and let it do it’s thing so I can focus on all the other components of our meal.

And the leftovers…if there are are any…are divine heated up. I think the flavors meld together just a wee bit as it sits.

But we rarely have any leftovers…you probably won’t either!

    I made this for Easter and imagine my surprise when I looked at it about 4 hours in to see the cream curdled! What did I do wrong? From my research this can happen to dairy in the crockpot but with all your experience cooking this way I figure you would’ve mentioned it. I’m at a loss!
    Thanks for so many great recipes though. Love the site!

      Oh no Jane, I am sorry the cream curdled on you. I tested this recipe several times before posting it and never had the cream curdle on me. I had to test it several times to get the seasoning right (it was a bit bland the first couple times I made it).

      I am wondering if your crock-pot runs hotter than normal. Sometimes that can affect a recipe.
