Slow Cooker Augratin Potatoes

Slow Cooker Augratin Potatoes

Potatoes! They have always been a staple in our house but they may not be the most convenient food item to prepare. One of my favorite potato dishes is augratin style but the most common form is dried and bought in a box. I have to admit that I have always been a little leary of boxed potatoes. I mean, they are convenient but fresh is always better. Especially when you can put it in a slow cooker and let it cook all day and serve the minute dinner is ready.

My husband was very hesitant to try this recipe. He like what he knows and this was a bit outside the box. We had it as a side dish where the potatoes did not have to be eaten, there was plenty of other food, but after one bite that was the first to disappear. Everyone was happy with them. Slow Cooker Augratin Potatoes

This is a basic style in my mind but I can’t to try some new styles. What type of augratin potatoes would you like to see?
