We love this slow cooker Scalloped Potato Recipe! The best part is that you don’t have to use the oven …. leaving the oven for your main dish! We also love to serve this up as a side dish to go with steak (and you don’t have to heat up the house in the summer for an awesome side dish!).
Once these are finished cooking, the sauce may look slightly runny. Be sure to shut the slow cooker off for about 20 minutes before serving and the sauce will thicken up. The result is a rich and delicious side dish that everyone will love!
Note: Recipes are tested several times before posting. Some readers have had issues with the cheese separating in this recipe which could be related to varying temperatures of slow cookers. While this recipe hasn’t separated in my slow cooker, I have edited this recipe to add the cheese at the end of cooking to avoid the problems with separation.
- 6 large potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 onions thinly sliced
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 2 cloves garlic
- 5 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon each pepper thyme and poultry seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
- 2-3 cups cheese use your favorite, I love sharp cheddar and Gruyere
Melt butter in a saucepan on the stove. Add garlic. Add in flour and stir until blended. Let cook 1 minute.
Pour in milk while whisking and continue to whisk until incorporated and no lumps remain. Add in chicken broth and seasonings. Stir over medium heat until thick and bubbly.
Spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray. Layer 1/3 of potatoes, 1/2 of onions and 1 cup of sauce. Repeat layers ending with the remaining potatoes & sauce.
Cook on high 4-5 hours. Sprinkle with cheese, turn off slow cooker and cover to allow cheese to melt.
Once done potatoes can be kept on warm for up to 2 hours. To thicken up sauce (if required) turn off slow cooker for about 20 minutes before serving.
