Creamy slow cooked potato bake
4 hrs 10 mins
3 large thinly sliced potatoes
1 small diced Onion
3 rashers Bacon (fat removed optional)
1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
3/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Cooking Cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 - 3/4 cup Grated cheese
1Spray slow cooker bowl with non stick oil spray.
3Layer 1/3 of potato slices in bottom of bowl.Add half of onion and half of bacon. Layer 1/3 of potato slices on top.Add remaining half of onion and bacon.Layer remaining potato.
4In a bowl stir milk, cream, garlic and salt and pepper to combine. Pour over potatoes.
6Cover and cook on HIGH for 2hrs then LOW for 2-3hrs depending on your cooker.(Auto function for 5hrs will achieve the same result)
8Half an hour prior to serving top with grated cheese and cook until melted.
9*Notes*- Every slow cooker is different. If you worry your potato bake is getting too dry you can add further milk/cream or even just milk. It will all still come together by the end.
10This is the perfect sized potato bake for the 1.5L baby slow cookers
11The extra sauce in picture was just something I added at the time for extra flavour - totally optional - some people like a squirt of mustard also

I cooked this for the first time today and i left out the bacon and cheese and i found it was lacking something to make it a bit more taster and i added a bit more minced garlic but it didn’t really help with to make it a bit more taster

When I first seen people talking about this recipe, I thought surely it wouldn’t be better than the traditional way.. I’m now so so glad I tried this!! Absolutely delicious! I made a little extra sauce as I added one more potato and cooked for 5 hours (3high, 2low). Will never make potato bake any other way!! Thank you 🙂

My favourite potato bake. Great side dish for so many meals, in fact I’m making it again today.

I made this the other week for a family gathering. I did it without the bacon and it was sensational. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make again

This was delicious and lovely and creamy. I added 2 teaspoons of vegeta powder to the dish at the beginning and sprinkled the cheese with paprika at the end. I cooked in my 1.5litre and it could have gone a bit longer. Next time I’ll actually set it to cook approx 8 hrs. A really great side packed with flavour.

I use tin Cream Chicken soup instead of milk & more cream if needed

I add a few teaspoons of french onion soup to the cream for a bit extra flavor ☺
