Need a side dish everyone will love but doesn’t take much time to make? This easy slow cooker cheesy potato casserole is it!
Recently I started thinking about my history with casseroles. (I know, fascinating subject isn’t it?)
If you’re from the south y’all know about casseroles. They’re at every potluck dinner and many family meals.
Healthy? Not usually.
Dictionary.com says a casserole is a “noun 1. a baking dish of glass, pottery, etc., usually with a cover. 2. any food, usually a mixture, cooked in such a dish. 3. a small dish with a handle, usually used in chemical laboratories. verb 4. to bake or cook (food) in a casserole.
Are you like me? Did you receive those lovely 9×13 dishes for your wedding?
I think my husband would say some of my cooking experiments qualified for definition number three (used in chemical laboratories.)
So today, my friends, we’re going to casserole (verb) a casserole (noun) in a casserole dish.
Except we’re actually going to use the slow cooker because I think it’s easier. And the smell starts wafting through the house earlier.

what size slow cooker to use for this?
Hi, Mary. I used a 6 quart slow cooker but you could also cut this recipe in half and use a smaller one. Good luck!
I notice that at the top of the recipe it says 3 hours and the bottom says cook 4 hours. Which one is correct?
Hi, Mary Ann. I’m so sorry to be so late getting back to you! I went back in and changed the recipe and then forgot to let you know! I only cook the potatoes for a total of 3 hours but sometimes it depends on your slow cooker. I hope you enjoyed the recipe!
I make this all the time my kids love it and I make it in the oven it’s the best been making it for about 20 yrs now
Hi, Shirley. We love serving this at Easter, and I love the slow cooker version because it’s so easy!
This sounds really tasty! I’m going to get the ingredients to make it this week, but I’ll substitute cream of celery soup to make it vegetarian.
That’s a great idea, Patrice. This is a simple recipe to substitute and change up the taste a bit.
My grandmother made a Potatoe dish similar to yours, she identified the recipe by the name of “Georgia Taters”. Instead of shredded potatoes, we substitute quartered red potatoes or bite sized chunks of russet potatoes. We also did not use Cream of Chicken Mushroom Soup but substitute Campbell’s Golden Mushroom Soup. Lastly we added 3 to 4 bunches of chopped Green Onions tops, utilizing the bottoms or white portion of the green onions sparingly to taste.
I can’t wait to try your shredded potatoe recipe, Substituting the soup and onions.
Thank you for all you do for our tummies! 😉 ;-p
Hi, Melissa. Your grandmother’s recipe sounds so yummy! Potatoes are such a great way to stretch a meal and a budget with teenagers! Have a great day!
I’m wondering if you could place a layer of fish sticks over the top, and make a complete dinner out of it…
Visiting from Tasty Tuesday – this looks so good! I make a similar recipe, but have never tried it in the slow cooker. Good idea!
