Ingredients

  • 5-6 potatoes , peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 onion , sliced thinly
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Tear off a large piece of foil
  • Place 1/2 of your onion on the bottom
  • Cover with half of your potatoes
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  • Repeat layers
  • Pull up the sides of the foil to form a packet and close tightly
  • Place on top of your meat cooking in your 6-quart slow cooker (I used Sir Hamilton, my Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker)
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours
  • Remove packet from slow cooker and garnish as desired or make into mashed potatoes

Notes

  • This is a recipe to make your own. If you want mashed potatoes, make them up into mashed potatoes. If you want creek potatoes, you can eat them like that. If you want to add bacon, add bacon! Whatever you want, go for it!
  • This Crock Pot Potato Packet is an add on recipe. You will be placing the packet in the same crock pot as a meat you are cooking for 6-8 hours. It makes it so you can make your main dish and side dish all in one crock pot! That way you only have to have or clean up one crock pot instead of two!
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
