Make these Slow Cooker “Campfire” Potatoes for your next cookout or while camping if you have hook-ups.
I haven’t been able to go camping (in our travel trailer) this year. We had some family emergencies and we also just got back from a Carnival Cruise, which took up some of our normal camping dates. I love making recipes in my slow cooker while camping, instead of grilling or using the fire. It’s mainly because I know that I’ll get good results and it’s even more joyful for me to cook in the slow cooker when it’s not at home!
When I started preparing to make these potatoes I planned to make loaded style potatoes, then I came across a few recipes online that use Worcestershire sauce, I added some extra flavors like garlic and parmesan to make these potatoes unique. The butter sauce that I make for these potatoes tastes like a homemade dressing. If you are looking for a unique recipe to make, this is a great one to try.
After the potatoes are mixed with the butter mixture, it may seem dry. It won’t be I promise, the butter will melt back down and make a delicious sauce for the potatoes.
Below is what the potatoes look like after cooking on high for 4 hours. Keep the lid on the entire time so the potatoes get tender.

I hope you enjoy this side dish recipe! I’ll be back next week with another new recipe. I’m wishing summer wasn’t flying by so fast so I can make more recipes like this one.

Do you think it would work if I double the recipe? Need a side for a potluck and this sounds amazingly yummy and simple.

Yes, just don’t cut the potatoes too thick and be sure to keep the lid on for the entire cooking time. You may need an extra half hour to hour.
Absolutely delicious. I cooked it on my bbq grill at 300F for 6 hours. Going to be doing this again and again. 🙂

Sounds very good am going to make some tomorrow
So, first of all, I love these potatoes!
Second, I’m lazy, so I just put my boneless skinless chicken thighs on the bottom of my crockpot added a little bit more of all the other ingredients except the potatoes, and poured the whole potato mixture on top of the chicken. It was fantastic!! And the leftovers were even better!!!
What a great idea? I’m going to try that with chicken breasts since we’re not fans of dark meat. Thanks
