Our family eats potatoes as a dinner side dish at least 2-3 times a week. Not only are potatoes an inexpensive option, but they can also be cooked in so many different kinds of ways so nobody gets bored! As our weather has been cooling down I’ve been making more comfort food type recipes and this Slow Cooker Au Gratin Potatoes recipe is the perfect example of comfort food if I’ve ever seen one! It’s easy to prep and made with gouda cheese for a rich, bold flavor.
I love this Potatoes Au Gratin recipe because, like most slow cooker recipes, it is easy to prep ahead of time. It’s excellent for serving when entertaining as well. Simply set it up hours before your guests arrive and it will be perfectly cooked at dinner time. It’s a hearty comfort food that works well with a variety of meat entrees as well! What are you waiting for? Grab your Crock Pot and try it out!
