Cooking potatoes doesn’t get any easier than using your crockpot appliance! In general, potatoes can be tricky to cook to the right consistency. Depending on what you cook them in, they might turn out crunchy on the outside but still undercooked internally. On the other hand, sometimes they’re cooked too long and turn mushy. You don’t need to worry about these issues with these crockpot recipes, though. The crockpot makes the vegetables perfectly fork-tender. Whether you want to find a potato breakfast dish, a side dish, or an entrée, we have options for you on this list.

There are many dishes below where potatoes aren’t the main ingredient, but they significantly improve the dish’s versatility, taste, and texture. Meanwhile, there are other recipes where potatoes are the star ingredient, such as mashed potatoes, au gratin potatoes, and potato soup! So, whether you have extra potatoes lying around or you just want to make your food heartier with their help, read on! You’ll surely want to add some of these options to your recipe collection because they’re super easy to follow and full of flavor.
