These Crockpot Italian Potatoes are such an easy way to have a delicious and healthy dinner!  We make these as much as possible!Delicious and easy Italian Crockpot Potatoes

If you are like me, most of your Crockpot creations are Entree’s!  In fact, I’d say 100% of mine are Entree’s.   However, just a few days ago, I made stuffing in the slow cooker.  The reason- my oven was full with rolls and potatoes plus, I wanted everything to be hot and ready at once, without having to cook all of it within the last 30 minutes before guests arrived.  It made so much sense! I was able to put the stuffing in the crockpot in the morning, and it was ready exactly when the rest of our meal was ready, without the hassle of making it right before hand, and have an even bigger mess.

What did I learn?  Cook more side dishes in the crockpot! Especially those veggie side dishes! That way, once dinner rolls around, there are no excuses to getting veggies on the table.  No salad to chop and no wondering what you’ll eat.

So, this is the side dish we just made for our dinner tonight! Crockpot Italian Potatoes!  All the ingredients in the slow cooker by lunch time.. Hot and delicious and ready to eat by dinner.

We used:

ingredients for crockpot potatoes
  • 6 potatoes (russets or red – we’ve done both!)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red bell  pepper
  • 2 TBL butter
  • 4 ounces parmesan cheese
  • Oregano

We quartered the potato:

and then finely diced the onion and pepper

Then put everything in the slow cooker for 4 hours- on high.

This was such an easy dinner because we had leftover turkey, homemade bread, the potatoes, and some leftover fruit from our fruit bowl.  Balanced and delicious!
