Slow Cooker Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes
I don’t know why, but lately I have been craving some of the old classic recipes from my youth. Those were the working mom’s recipes that could cook all day while she was at work and the kids were at school.
So from the “Way Back” files I bring you the classic Slow Cooker Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes. Creamy, cheesy, with bacon, onion, and a yummy sauce.
I chose to use thick cut bacon in this scalloped potatoes recipe because it will withstand the long cook time. Also, thick cut bacon tends to be leaner, in my experience.
If you want to, you can substitute leftover ham for the bacon. Or, leave the meat out entirely.
This crock pot cheesy scalloped potatoes recipe is not a low fat recipe! Considered yourself forewarned. For an occasional splurge, a holiday, or even a potluck, this is the recipe to use.
A few ways to make this recipe healthier would be to use reduced fat/sodium soup, low fat milk, low fat cheese, and use turkey bacon.
You could make a vegetarian version of Slow Cooker Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes by using cream of celery soup, and omitting the bacon.

If you use uncooked bacon, how does it cook? I mean is it soggy? I like crispy bacon.
If you like crisp bacon, cook it separately in a skillet or in the oven.

If you do, cook them for less time and keep an eye on them.
Can I make this recipe in my multi-cooker using the slow cooker setting?
Yes, it should work. Timing will depend on the brand and model you have. Check the user manual for suggested time & temp.
Can I Pre make these and leave in the fridge overnight or will it become to soggy. Maybe a stupid question.
Yes, they should be fine. Let the crock come up to room temp or close before heating so you don’t risk it cracking.
Couldn’t get these to cook in the slow cooker, after 5 hours had to put them in the oven. They were really good once they finally cooked!
Oh I’m sorry to hear that. Maybe they were sliced too thick?
Excellent potatoes! They were so creamy and flavorful! This recipe makes a lot!
