Crock Pot Creamy Cheesy Red Potatoes

"A great addition to any dinner. I've made these as a side dish to ribs; also a nice side for a holiday meal, BBQ, potluck or any average dinner. My dinner guests asked for second and third helpings! Courtesy of Taste of Home's Quick Cooking Magazine March/April 2003 magazine."

Questions & Replies

  1. Substitute for Velveeta?


  1. This was a tasty dish and I enjoyed the ease of using the crockpot although my potatoes were not finished at the 5-6 hr cooking time on low so next time I will cook longer. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Did you try these before you served them? Not so good.
  3. Had for family dinner. Thought cheese sauce was way too over powering. Did not like consistency either. Would not make again.
  4. Great potatoes! I cut my potatoes pretty small so the cooking time was right on target for me. I used reduced-fat versions of the cottage cheese, sour cream and Velveeta. Also, I used fresh minced onion in place of the dried flakes. I must tell you that I was worried about this. Halfway through cooking, it seemed like I was going to have soup with undercooked potatoes. But...after about 5 1/2 hours, the liquid cooked off into a nice thick and moist sauce and my potatoes were the perfect tenderness. Yummy! I'm glad that I coated my slowcooker with nonstick spray; it made clean up much easier. I'll be making this recipe again. Thanx, Tara! :)
  5. Mmmm MMMm Good..took to a family potluck not a drop left.


Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
