Cooking Time:3-4 hours
Ingredients1 onion, minced
3 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
8 to 10 small potatoes, sliced
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese, optional
1/2 c. milk
Perfect for the holidays or any special week-night meal, these potatoes are delicious, filling and leftovers are equally as great!
- Coat a large oval slow cooker with butter or non-stick spray.
- In a small bowl, mix onion and garlic then sprinkle with salt & pepper.
- Place 1/4 of the sliced potatoes in bottom of slow cooker – spread out evenly.
- Sprinkle with about 1/4 of the onion and garlic mixture.
- Next add 1/3 of the cream cheese cubes.
- Repeat layers and pour 1/4 c. milk over top.
- Cover. Cook on HIGH 3 to 4 hours, until potatoes are tender.
- In the last 20 to 30 minutes of cooking, stir potatoes to distribute.
- Stir in the remaining cream cheese with the potatoes, and lightly mash.
- Add up to 1/4 c. more milk, if needed to reach your desired consistency.
- Top with 1/2 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese (If your family loves bacon like mine, you can even sprinkle with some cooked bacon pieces!)
- Cover and continue to cook, about 10 minutes, just until melted.
Optional: You may want to place in a Oven-Proof bowl and place under the broiler for a few minutes to make them a little brown for better presentation! Enjoy!

Hi Jenn: Can you put the serving size on the Nutrition Facts in cups instead of grams? I don’t know what 336 g equals.
Hi Cynthia it is the program I use, and I am unable to modify, but you can use a converter program on the internet. 336 g = about 1.350 cups! Hope this helps! 🙂
I wish that you would recommend the size slow cooker to be used for each recipe.
Hi Emily, I don’t always show the slow cooker size, as I want others to make a recipe if they like it. You can adjust any recipe to fit your slow cooker size, you just need to make sure your slow cooker is 1/2 – 2/3 full to crock properly. Enjoy!
I guess I fit the stereotype as an Irish girl in Boston. I’m crazy about potato recipes! Thanks, I can’t wait to try this!
There doesn’t seem to be enough liquid…was this a problem for anyone?
Hi Nichole, sometimes it depends on the slow cooker. If your slow cooker crocks a little hot, you may want to add more milk. Hope this helps!
Would this work with a crockpot liner? What do you mean in step #10?
Yes Ann it can be used with a liner! I have also edited step 10, and made it clearer… Thank you for your question! 🙂
Do you necessarily need to peel the potatoes first or can you leave the skins on? Also would this recipe fit in a 4 at slow cooker?
Hi! This recipe looks great but I’m at work all day, do you think it would work if I cooked it on low?
Laura it may still get done before you get home from work. As you know all slow cooker crock differently, so it depends on your slow cooker. If you have a programmable slow cooker you could make this to crock for 5 hours on Low, and then let it turn to warm, so it doesn’t over cook. Again it all depends on your slow cooker! Thanks for the question.
I am going make this recipe for Thanksgiving 🙂
I wasn’t too impressed with this, or maybe I did something wrong. My potatoes were mushy and stuck together. The flavor was on spot but just didn’t turn out the way your picture shows it.
Misty, I have made this several times, and I have noticed sometimes it is the potatoes. I love this recipe and make it often. I don’t think you did anything wrong, it must be that your potatoes cooked really fast, or that your slow cooker cooks a little hotter than some slow cookers. Hope this helps and that you will make it again. 🙂

Could I double this recipe and if so what would the timing be.
