Hey Lil’ Luna fans! Melanie here from Garnish & Glaze to share a super easy and delicious side dish using one of the most popular vegetables – the potato.

I think we can all agree that potatoes are the best! I love that you can cook them like a thousand different ways, all so delicious, including these Crockpot Cheesy Potatoes, which is a slow cooker version of our famous Funeral Potatoes (aka Cheesy Potatoes).

The combination of cheese and potatoes is always a good idea. It takes a plain starchy vegetable and makes it a side dish star. These slow cooker cheesy potatoes are just that! They’re great as a dinner side or even for breakfast.

How to make Crockpot Cheesy Potatoes?

These are so incredibly easy to make which is how a side dish should be.

You’ll first dump the frozen potatoes, soup, sour cream, onion, garlic salt, and half the cheese together in the bottom of a slow cooker. Then all you have to do is cover and cook it.

These can be cooked on low or high setting depending on when you want them to be done. It only takes 3-4 hours on HIGH or 5-6 on LOW. All slow cookers are not alike. Some cook hotter than others so check to see if the potatoes are done at the shorter end of the time frame. If they aren’t tender yet, cook longer.

When the potatoes are tender, sprinkle on the remaining cheese and cover with the lid for 5-10 minutes until it’s melted. Sprinkle with fresh cracked black pepper and then serve with dinner. Enjoy!

Cheesy Potatoes Crock Pot Recipe


Can I use raw potatoes for crockpot cheesy potatoes? Of course! This will take longer to prep since you’ll have to peel and dice up the potatoes, which is why we use the frozen potatoes, but they work just as great too.

Can I use shredded potatoes? YES! This will take a little less time to cook, so be sure to keep an eye on them. Over cooked potatoes can become mushy and gummy, which is the opposite of what we want.

How to store/reheat cheesy potatoes? We recommend putting all leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge. These should last for up to 4-5 days if stored properly. To reheat, place on a plate and spread out and heat in the microwave in 30 second increments. They can also be reheated by placing in a baking dish and reheating in the oven at 300 degrees.

This particular recipe serves 8, so if you’re making this for the holidays be sure to keep that in mind. We typically double it since these crockpot funeral potatoes (cheesy potatoes/party potatoes – they have lots of names) are always a hit at any function.

    I was looking for vegetarian sides and I came across this recipe. I simply swapped the cream of chicken for cream of celery- it was amazing! Thank you for posting it; I’ll be adding this to the winter ‘comfort food’ rotation.

  2. Could you sub the sour cream with french onion dip? If not, is the sour cream “obvious” in this? It seems strange, but my husband does not like sour cream, but does not complain when I put french onion dip in twice baked potatoes.

    1. I haven’t ever tried subbing for French Onion Dip. You could certainly give it a try and see how it turns out. I have subbed plain greek yogurt for sour cream and that tastes/work well, but might too similar to sour cream for his liking. You’ll have to let us know how it is with the French Onion Dip.

  3. Use a different host. The pop up in front of the recipe make it impossible to read anything. I can’t see it long enough to want to navigate through the unrelenting ads. Completely ridiculous.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. The ads do allow us to be able to continue to provide free recipes and content to our readers. Thanks for understanding.
