Slow Cooker Potato Casserole

I have come to realize that although potatoes are one of my favorite foods, I absolutely hate preparing them. Peeling, mashing, chopping, shredding, anything you have to do is just difficult and time consuming! I wish there was an easy button for potatoes!

Anyway, cheesy potato casserole is a staple at almost every family meal I've been to. I've never seen it made in the slow cooker before so this was a first. It was definitely missing a little extra flavor, but overall, I'd definitely make it again! I added a 1/2 teaspoon of pepper to what I made. I think if I made it again I'd add a clove or two of garlic. When scott was heating it up, he added some ranch dressing and said it was good. I may even add some cayenne pepper for that extra kick! I added these suggestions in the recipe in italics! Overall, without the previous additions, I'd say this was a 3.75/5!!
