Slow Cooker Party Potatoes are a delicious casserole side dish that has amazing flavor!
Have you ever had a week where everything goes wrong? I rarely do, but this last week was the most exhausting I’ve ever had. I had no idea when I’d muster enough energy to get this recipe out. Today though I shouldn’t be working, I’m feeling better enough to work. I enjoy making these recipes posts and feel horrible I’ve been absent.
This recipe is a an older recipe, I’ve made variations of it before, with different ingredients and different cooking times. This recipe by far beats any other I’ve made. The combination of the sour cream and cream of chicken makes for a great sauce. The 5 hour cooking time turns these potatoes into a set up casserole. I usually say what meat I would serve a recipe with, but truthfully I just ate these! They are that good.
My number one tip before you dive into making these is to thaw the potatoes, I thawed mine over night in the fridge. If you are in a pinch a few hours on the counter top will work fine.
