Slow Cooker Rustic Au Gratin Potatoes
I love when I can put potatoes in the slow cooker and have them ready to serve when it is time to eat supper. These Slow Cooker Rustic Au Gratin Potatoes turned out so creamy and delicious. Layer the potatoes, onions and cheese sauce in the slow cooker and cook on low for about 7 hours and they are ready to eat. I love how the sauce is thick and sticks to the potatoes. These are made with cream cheese giving this recipe a nice different kind of cheese flavor. If you want to, you can replace the cream cheese with cheddar cheese for an entirely different tasting recipe.

In a medium bowl heat the milk in the
microwave until small bubbles form.
(This can be done in a saucepan instead.)
Remove from the microwave (or stove)
and stir in the soup, cream cheese,
garlic, nutmeg, paprika, salt and pepper.
Whisk cheese mixture until
smooth and creamy.
Slice the potatoes 1/4” thick.
Slice the onions thin.
Place 1/4 of the sliced potatoes into
the bottom of the slow cooker then
top with 1/4 of the sliced onions.
Top with 1/4 of the cheese sauce.
Repeat layers until the ingredients are gone.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours then serve.

Those sound great, Diane!
Thanks a lot Jennifer!
Love these kind of comforting dishes!
Comfort food at it’s best! I love potatoes!
I love slow cooker recipes! Thanks for posting this one. 🙂
You’re welcome Amanda!
Using a crock pot for Au Gratin Potatoes is a wonderful idea. I’ve only ever placed them in the oven. Great way to free up the oven on big dinners!
Yes and one less thing to worry about at the last minute! Thanks!
I love potatoes prepared this way. They become so decadent!
They sure do. Thanks Erica!
My favourite potato dish! Happy holidays Dianne x
Merry Christmas Lilly! 🎄🎁
Same for me – amitiés 🙂 Merci
I use a slow cooker often. There is nothing like coming home to a house filled with the smell of delicious food. I make quite a lot of beans in my slow cooker, but I will definitely give your potato dish a try! Thanks for all of the great recipes. Happy Holidays.
You are so welcome! Happy Holidays!
I love this. Homemade is unbelievable.
Beats processed any time! Thank you Javy Dreamer!
Interesting about the cream cheese. It’s on sale everywhere this week, so I think I’ll get some and try this out. Haven’t had any for many years. Not sure why.
It gives a taste similar to sour cream yet you can still tell it’s cream cheese. Really a nice change of flavor.
Looks delicious! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Thank you and Merry Christmas to you and your family as well!
What a delicious recipe. I’m going to try this tomorrow. Thank you! Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas Lisa!
Reminds me of Potato Bake.
This sounds awesome and interesting…love to try with broccoli 😊
Not sure how broccoli would hold up in the crock pot for that long. If you try it, let me know will you?
They look delicious – I know you love your slow cooker Diane.
You know me well! Thank you!
I do! This time next year you’ll be making cookies especially for the new grandbaby who will have a few teeth by then. 🙂
I can’t wait to see him in 2 days. I wish they lived closer!
Yes, that is too bad they live that far away and I’ll bet you will notice how much bigger he is since you last saw him when he was born!
They text me pictures almost daily. I love that!
That’s so great Diane, plus Facebook, so you’re not going to notice how big he got so much then. I have a friend who lives in Virginia and her first grandson was born in April. Every so often my friend will send pictures of this little boy. She sent me a picture with Santa and the baby looks all grown up – he had on shoes, khaki jeans and a plaid shirt – well OMG … he looked like he was ready to start school!
Lol they do grow up fast. I had lots of cuddling from all three of my grandchildren today. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Linda!
That sounds so nice Diane – Christmas is a wonderful time for families but so special when there are kids involved. My Christmas was quiet as it is just me, but relaxing – spent hours at the Park just walking and taking pictures.
This looks so delicious and easy . I love my slow cooker so this is perfect!
Thank you it was really easy!
Your welcome !!
Diane this sounds so good. It just might be part of my “It’s my birthday and I’ll eat what I want” celebration.
Hahaha will you use cream cheese or cheddar?
I think I’ll use the cream cheese
That’s how I made it…enjoy!
It looks really good!
Yum,such a winter dish😀
Wow! This sounds great. Thanks!
