  • 4 medium russet potatoes peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup milk any grade
  • 1 stalk green onion chopped
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • onion powder to taste


  1. Peel potatoes with a potato peeler, rinse off any dirt, and slice into 1/4 inch thick round slices.

  2. Spray the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Layer the bottom of the slow cooker with some of the sliced potatoes in a spiral, slightly overlapping but not stacked.

  3. Season potatoes lightly with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

  4. Pour 1/4 of the milk over the potatoes in the slow cooker and then add a sprinkle of cheese. Repeat these layers until all potatoes are in the slow cooker and end the layer with cheese on top.

  5. Wash one stalk of green onion and chop into small pieces (just the green part). Sprinkle the fresh chives over the potatoes in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low 4-5 hours or high 2-3 hours or until fork tender.

  6. Serve hot and enjoy!
