Crock Pot Au Gratin Potatoes

I am always on the lookout for a great side dish that can be prepared in the Crock Pot for a large crowd. We entertain frequently and attend at least one or two covered dish pot luck dinner's a month, so a recipe like this is awesome.  The Crockpot Ladies shared this recipe on my Full Plate Thursday on April 5, 2012. I have made it twice since then and it is a great recipe that I wanted to share with you today.

Crock Pot Au Gratin Potatoes

Crock Pot Au Gratin Potatoes
Adapted From The Crock Pot Ladies
Prepared In Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 pounds of Russet Potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch thick rounds
1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated (or shredded)
1 1/4 cups Whipping Cream
1/2 cups Shallots, finely chopped
2 teaspoons Fresh Rosemary, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
1-2 Tablespoons Butter or Spread for buttering the Crock Pot
Butter the crock pot with your butter ( or you can use a cooking spray)
Mix cream, rosemary, shallots and salt and pepper in bowl.
Put half of the potatoes in the bottom of your Crock pot, so they are slightly overlapping
Sprinkle half of your cheese over the potatoes
Add the rest of your potatoes and pour cream mixture over that
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top
Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours
Test potatoes with a fork to make sure they are cooked enough all the way to the bottom layer
This is a delicious recipe!

  28. Oh my goodness your potatoes look great! I love that you can make them in the crock pot, so much nicer than turning on the stove when it is hot.

  29. I just made these, leaving out the herbs because I didn't have any and all of my cream and cheese curdled leaving clear liquid in the bottom of the crock. They were tasty anyway, but it didn't seem quite right. Is that normal? Or did I do something wrong?

    1. Hi Amber,
      I sure don't know anyone that has had the problem of the cheese and cream separating If your bottom layer was the potatoes then the cheese and cream, then another layer on top of that, I can't figure out how all the cream turned to liquid and ended up on the bottom of the crock pot. Maybe your cheese product had a flaw of some kind that caused it to curdle. It is a real cooking mystery to me and if you get it figured out please let me know. I have made this recipe over and over and never had a problem. Thanks for your comment and discussion and am glad you enjoyed the flavor.
      Hope you are having a good day!
      Miz Helen

  30. Our kitchen is gutted, so I was looking for a crock pot gratin recipe online. Yours is the only one I've found that doesn't require cooking the cheese sauce on the stove first. I don't have a stove, so this is great. I'm off to the kitchen to prep these for dinner tonight to go along with crock pot ham. Thanks!
