Whoah...hold the press folks, these creamy scalloped potatoes are super easy and soooo delicious. So easy you will want to try them today.
My secret ingredient to smooth and creamy, but lightened up scalloped potatoes is "Cheesy Ragu, Light Parmesan Alfredo". I'm not a huge fan of premade sauces but for $1.69 at Wal Mart this makes a reasonably priced side dish that is absolutely delicious.
Easy Crock Pot Scalloped Potatoes
Peel and slice thinly 4 pounds of potatoes
Make the sauce, in a medium sized bowl mix the following:
1 cup milk (I used skim)
2 Tablespoons margarine
1 1/2 Tablespoons of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
optional 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 jar of Cheesy Ragu Light Parmesan Alfredo
(adjust the seasonings to your taste)
Spray your crockpot with cooking spray, it will make clean up easy.
Add a little sauce to the crockpot then add about 1/3 of the potatoes, pour about 1/3 of the sauce over the potatoes then layer the potatoes and sauce 2 more times. Make sure all the potatoes are coated. Cover and cook on high for about 5 hours. After 2 1/2 hours stir the potatoes and add 1/2 cup cheddar cheese if desired, stir in.
The cooking time will depend on how thinly you slice the potatoes.
