Au Gratin Potatoes

We're originally from Wisconsin, so you know we're going to be making cheesy potatoes.  This recipe offers up tasty, cheesy potatoes as a side dish to any meal you're planning.

I will make potatoes in the crock any time, but it's especially nice when you're cooking a big holiday meal and don't have room in your oven for too many things.

  • 10 - 12 small red potatoes` or 6 - 8 medium yellow potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


In a slow cooker, layer half the potatoes, half the onion slices and half the cheese.  Repeat the layers.

In a small bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup, milk, dried thyme, garlic powder and black pepper.  Mix well.  Pour over the potatoes in the crock.

Cook on low heat for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.

** Cook's Note **
If you'd like a creamier sauce on your potatoes, you can substitute the milk for light cream.
