yup, so easy in the crock pot.
peel your potatoes, slice them thin, try to be sure they are the same thickness and put them in the crock.
Chop up an onion and mix it with the potatoes. Celery if you want, and mushrooms if you want.
ok, now you want to know how much, sorry I never measure or follow recipes. lol.. that makes it hard for you I know.
so how many potatoes? I have no idea, are you cooking for a small army or yourself? Don’t make too much of this as I find frozen potatoes are not nice. So you will need to eat all that you cook in the next couple of days.
So use enough potatoes for the number of people you are going to feed, I am sure you can figure that out, perhaps one large potato for each person?
maybe 1/2 an onion for each 4 potatoes you add.
some garlic is nice too, but it is best if you add it after a couple hours of cooking so the flavour shows more. Garlic becomes bitter if you cook it too much.
Now, make a white sauce, enough to cover your potatoes completely. … oh oh.. you don’t make white sauce.. ok, cheat and put in a tin of cream of mushroom soup. add maybe a 1/4 of a tin of milk to thin it. If you used a lot of potatoes, you will need another tin. Cream of celery works great too.
1/4 to 1/2 cup of white wine is good, stir it in. Don’t make the white sauce too thin with the wine.
Now if you have some ham left over from a roast, it is fantastic in the potatoes. chop it up and add it. the smoky flavour really works here. Some will use bacon, but trim off most of the fat.
thyme, salt and pepper, basil and the lid.
Turn the crock on low and wait until the potatoes are tender, it will take a few hours. maybe 4 or 5.
after three hours add some chopped garlic. (maybe two cloves/segments)
When it is cooked, the potatoes will be very tender.. add some chopped parsley, turn off the crock and leave the lid on, you can keep it warm that way and serve it when everyone is drooling from the smell.
