Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Melt Butter on 50% power in microwave enough to get it softened. Pour into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Melt cream cheese in same container as butter on 50% power in 30 second increments, watching very closely to keep it from burning. Cream Cheese does not need to be liquid, it just needs to be softened enough to be able to be stirred. Pour into the same mixing bowl as the butter.
  3. Add the cream of celery soup, diced onion, sour cream, garlic and pepper to the bowl and stir well until everything is mixed together.
  4. Add the frozen potatoes and shredded cheese and stir once more to mix thoroughly.
  5. Pour mixture into a 6 quart or larger slow cooker and spread evenly.
  6. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours until the potatoes and onion are cooked through.
Recipe Notes

To make clean up easier you may wish to either line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

If your slow cooker has a tendency to burn feel free to give the potatoes a stir every couple of hours. Additionally, you may want to carefully lift the slow cooker insert out of it’s base and rotate it as some models of slow cookers have hot spots around the edges. Just keep your eye on it to prevent burning.
