- You can also put them with roasted or steamed vegetables in addition to a main meat dish of your choice.
- Enjoy these tender and golden brown potatoes by themselves with various toppings such as a drizzle of melted butter, a dollop of sour cream, and diced green onion.

The potatoes will be slightly crispy around the edges, but these are very tender potatoes overall. The slow cooker is not an oven and will not brown things.
Russet potatoes hold up exceptionally well in slow cooking conditions; however, if you don’t have these on hand, you can also use Yukon gold or red potatoes.
