Crockpot Potatoes

Delicious crockpot potatoes, or delicious potatoes in a slow cooker, however you want to label this dish does not alter how simple it is to prepare, how easy it is on the budget and of course how absolutely delicious it is to eat for the whole family.

Welcome to all the Home chefs from the East Coast of Africa and around this wonderful world of ours.   

I know you are going to love this recipe and will land up using it over and over and over.  I particularly like putting it on the menu when we are doing a braai (or barbeque), I can get it cooking long before the guests arrive and then merely keep it warm until everyone is ready to eat, no last minute panic stations that the food is not going to be ready on time.

Ingredients for this Crockpot Potato Dish

  • Cooking spray.
  • 2lbs baby potatoes, halved and quartered if large.
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar.
  • 2 cloves of garlic, thinly slices
  • 8 slices of bacon cooked.
  • ¼ of a cup of sliced spring onions (add a bit more for garnish)
  • 1 Tbsp Paprika
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • Sour cream for drizzling on top just before serving.

Method for cooking Crockpot Potatoes

  • Line your slow cooker with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Add ½ the amount of potatoes.
  • 1 cup of cheese.
  • ½ the garlic.
  • ½ the cooked bacon.
  • ½ the spring onions.
  • ½ the paprika.
  • Season with salt and pepper.


  • Cover and cook on high until potatoes are tender (5 to 6 hours).
  • The bigger the potatoes, the longer they'll need.


  • About 20 - 30 minutes before serving, top with remaining cheese.
  • This is your moment to make the dish look "pretty".
  • Garnish with the rest of the spring onions.
  • Drizzle with sour cream just before serving.
  • You can serve this potato dish as a side dish for most meals, like barbeque as we said in the beginning, fish dishes, cold meats the choice is yours!

We really hope that you will get great enjoyment out of cooking this recipe as well as eating it, and sharing the experience wherever you go in the world.
