  1. I absolutely love this recipe, made it today for the first time. So delicious it will be my go to side when we have visitors as well. Simple to make, yet it looks like you’ve spent a lot of time on it. Did I mention delicious ???

  2. Please explain … Top each one with 1T butter (and one extra T of butter at the end into the slow cooker bowl) Do you put the one extra T of butter at the end of the bowl or at the end of the 4-5 hours cooking time?

  3. These were lovely and a hit with all the family. I sprinkled season all salt over them and also finished with 30 min in the oven to brown them. A winner!!!!

  4. These were amazing. Why did I wait so long to try them. Used small spuds as a side to a steak dinner. Definitely will be making again.
