Another Slow Cooker Side Dish



Slow cookers come in handy for so many different reasons. Sometimes they are a great way to make an extra side dish when the oven is taken up.

Here is a great slow cooker side dish we made recently.

Slow Cooker Smoky Cheese and Potato Bake


1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 container (8 ounces) sour cream (1 cup)
1 (7 ounce) round hickory-smoked Gouda cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/3 cup drained roasted red bell pepper strips (from 7-ounce jar)
1 bag (32 ounces) frozen southern-style cubed hash brown potatoes (8 cups), thawed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives


Spray 3 1/2-to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix soup, sour cream and cheese in medium bowl. Gently stir in bell pepper strips.

Arrange half of the potatoes in cooker. Top with half of the sour cream mixture; spread evenly. Top with remaining potatoes and sour cream mixture, spreading evenly. Do not stir.

Cover and cook on low heat setting 5 to 6 hours. Sprinkle chives over potatoes before serving.

Makes 14 servings (1/2 cup each).

Recipe Notes: You can vary the taste by using whatever creamed soup you have on hand, such as cream of onion, chicken, broccoli, etc.

Notes: This was really tasty and it is an easy side dish to throw together and forget about until dinner time.

  1. Sometimes your oven is tied up and the slow cooker is the perfect way to get a side in. The gouda makes this dish. Very nice.
