These Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes are one side dish that you need to have at your holiday dinner! This is the perfect way to cook potatoes loaded with flavor and taste. The crock pot keeps these cheesy potatoes warm and doesn’t take up space in the oven!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AU GRATIN AND SCALLOPED POTATOES?
The biggest difference between the two types of potato recipes is that the au gratin potatoes are sliced thinner than scalloped potatoes.
There is usually more cheese involved when making au gratin potatoes. I happen to LOVE potatoes cooked almost any way!

Potatoes are traditionally a side dish that goes great with almost any main dish. Here are some main dishes that will be perfect for slow cooker scalloped potatoes:

You’re going to love making these slow cooker scalloped potatoes. They’re the perfect way to have creamy and cheesy potatoes ready for dinner. For exact measurements and directions, scroll down to the bottom of the post for the printable recipe.
STEP ONE: PREPARE POTATOES
Start off by peeling the potatoes and slicing them into thin round slices.
Lightly grease your 6-quart Crock Pot.
STEP TWO: COMBINE INGREDIENTS
In a medium bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup, heavy cream, dried thyme, and parsley. Whisk these ingredients together until they are well combined.
STEP THREE: LAYER INGREDIENTS
Add a layer of sliced potatoes to the bottom of the slow cooker so that they overlap and cover the entire bottom.
Salt and pepper the potatoes.
Spread 1/3 cup of the cream mixture over the potato layer. Then sprinkle shredded cheese on top.
Now repeat the layers of potatoes, cream mixture, shredded cheese until you end with a layer of potatoes on top.
There will be a total of 4 layers of potatoes and 3 layers of cream mixture and cheese.
STEP FOUR: SLOW COOK
Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high heat for about 4 hours. This is a perfect recipe to get ready and then start cooking around noon for an evening meal.
When the crock pot scalloped potatoes are done cooking, remove the lid and sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese on top of the potatoes. Replace lid and allow the cheese to melt. It will take 5-10 minutes.
Garnish the potatoes with fresh parsley, if desired and serve hot!
Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers.
