Recipe Notes

Slow Cooker Cheesy Ranch Potatoes Pro Tip:

When cooking anything in my slow cooker with shredded cheese I like to use foil it I am able.

Cheese can be messy to clean up unless it's a creamy cheese so for this recipe you want to start by lining your slow cooker with foil.

It also makes it really easy to pull out of the slow cooker when it's time to serve to make sure to line with a little overhang that you can grab.
