I made this last night for dinner. Added garlic and herb salt. Very nice . Another wonderful recipe added to my collection.

I used medium potatoes and they took 2 hours on low. Absolutely peefect.
Added sliced to homemade burgers instead of a side of fries.

Would this work with full sized potatoes as well?

So darn easy and taste so good. I think that they taste better than when done in the oven. (Maybe because they are SO easy!)

I love these & make them often using garlic butter. Just need to watch my slow cooker as it cooks very hot.

I’ve had mine on 3hrs in a 3.5L and the potatoes are rock hard still. So have put it up to high and will see what happens.

WOW.tried these tonight. Will definitely be doing them again. Did them in my 1.5 litre SC and only took 2 hours on high. Thankyou Paulene for sharing ๐Ÿ˜Š

I made these last night in my baby slow cooker. I knew I wouldnโ€™t have 3 hours, and really appreciated Pauleneโ€™s advice on the Facebook page to do them on high for around an hour and 45.
They were absolutely delicious! They will be a regular from now on. I put the herbs in at the start as all I had was dried, and added some rosemary and some garlic powder. Yum!

For an important function it would be worth testing it first as you will need extra time but it’s hard to predict how much extra for multiple layers ๐Ÿ™‚

Iโ€™m having a function with 30+ people, I have a large slow cooker, could I fill or 3/4 fill it with the potatoes all stacked on each other? Would it take a lot longer to cook? Thanks

I cook these every weekend so easy just love them. The only thing I do different is blitz up some onion with the parsley and put that in and maybe some mixed herbs – YUM

Perfectly I think ๐Ÿ™‚

How would adding pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot and parsnip go? I’m just about to try it!

You could but they would break apart when cooked.
Unless you mean like mashed potatoes (we have several of them if you search that in the search box of the recipe page)

does this work with peeled pots?

Great alternative! I almost went garlic too – because we love garlic everything haha
I’ll try your way next time for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

I used garlic butter instead of oil and they are amazing.
