These potatoes! I am literally obsessed with these things at the moment. Very rarely do I make something for dinner and my little family of 5 (well, technically 4 eaters because of the baby) polishes off the entire thing. These potatoes were an exception to that. We. Ate. Them. All!! Normally we have leftovers from dinner the night before and my husband will take it to work for lunch, but not this time!

These potatoes are so insanely delicious. It only takes a few minutes of chopping some potatoes, mixing up a delicious cream sauce to pour over them, and then you let it cook in the crock pot for a few hours. That’s it.

Slow cooker creamy ranch potatoes are so creamy, loaded with the ranch flavor we all love and tender potatoes, and they're made in the slow cooker. The perfect side dish to any dinner and you only need a few ingredients.

 Three suggestions for this recipe:

  • Use either red potato or yellow potato (aka- Yukon gold). They have more flavor and hold up much better to the longer cooking time.
  • I had to take the lid off my slow cooker and stir everything around so that the potatoes would not burn. I would suggest doing that at least once (I did it three times). If you are not home when these are cooking, don’t worry, they will still be delicious but they may have some burnt stuff stuck to the sides of the crock pot. Preferably, do these on a day you are home to stir them.
  • Cut larger size potato chunks. You don’t want them too small because then they will cook too much and become mushy. I cut my potatoes at least 2″ wide/big and they turned out with the perfect texture and doneness.

      July 17, 2015 at 9:16 pm I'm sorry for not specifying in the recipe. I will change that. It is the 0.4 oz packet of 'buttermilk recipe'. Hope that helps, let me know if you have another question :) Here is a link w/ a picture of it, if that helps http://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Valley-Original-Seasoning-Buttermilk/dp/B000EDM3JO/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1437182107&sr=8-8&keywords=ranch+seasoning+packets

      July 17, 2015 at 9:21 pm If you're using ranch powder mix from a big container (like the ones you buy in bulk at Costco or Sam's), I believe 3 tablespoons is equal to 1 packet (0.4 oz).

      July 18, 2015 at 9:27 pm Hi Loyce! I just scrub the potatoes really well. You can leave the skin on or peel it off, whatever you prefer. I will clarify that in the recipe. Thanks so much for commenting and visiting :)

      July 22, 2015 at 7:19 pm Hi Julia! I have never tried using buttermilk instead of milk. I am sure it would be fine, because buttermilk is essentially milk. Let me know if you try it and if it worked. Thanks for stopping by and commenting :)

    July 27, 2016 at 11:24 am These potatoes were not only simple to make, but so so good. I did add a bit more ranch dressing mix to taste, because I felt it needed more. Just add to your liking. My family loved these so much, I'm going to have to make them again. It went very well with grilled steak. YUM!
