Side Dishes In The Slow Cooker

There is a great reason to own TWO slow cookers – One for the main dish and One for your side dish. We have some simple side dish recipes that we found to create in your slow cooker/ crock pot that your family will love.

Slow Cooker New Potatoes



5 quart slow cooker

* 24 new potatoes

* 2 tbsp. vegetable oil (can also use olive oil)

* 1 package dry Italian dressing mix

Clean the potatoes thoroughly but do not peel. Place the potatoes in a sealable bag and then pour in the vegetable oil.

Seal the bag and then toss the potatoes around in the bag until they are all evenly coated with oil.

Sprinkle the dry dressing mix in the bag, seal, and toss again until the potatoes are coated with the mix.

Place the potatoes in a 5 quart slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours or turn on high and cook for 4 to 5 hours.

The potatoes are done if tender when poked with a fork. The potatoes can be transferred to a bowl for serving or served in the crock, which would keep the potatoes warm longer.
