Well I’m not going to lie to you…today has been a day of non-stop reality tv. Working from home has its perks, and one of them is having a full DVR crammed with every reality show known to man…#guiltypleasure. Pat will tell you, there’s pretty much zero reality shows I won’t at least give a shot. Addiction is tough. So today was a day of sitting on the couch, editing photos, and watching my gals (aka, the Real Housewives). Do you think Real Housewives of STL would come looking for me soon?? Life goals.
Where to serve Crock Pot Red Potatoes

Tips for making Crock Pot Potatoes:
- You don’t need a lot of water in the slow cooker. The potatoes will have some water come out of them while the cook plus you have ingredients like oil to bring some moisture. They may look dry when you put them in, but they’ll be perfect, moist, and tender once cooked.
- I have made Garlic Ranch and Taco Slow Cooker Potatoes but you can play around with the flavors! You could make Italian Potatoes with your Italian Dressing Mix and your favorite herbs or you can make them plain and sprinkle on some parmesan before serving.
- I didn’t peel the potatoes because…LAZY! There’s no need to peel the red potatoes before tossing in the slow cooker.
I am SO excited about these Garlic Ranch Slow Cooker Potatoes…They are SUPER simple, super yum…and perfect for busy people like us (I normally am a little busy…just not today…). Packed with flavor and also pretty darn healthy. I’m patting myself on the back if you can’t tell!
And if Garlic Ranch isn’t your thing, I hope the Spicy Taco variety is! Both are delicious, EASY, and perfect for THANKSGIVING!
