Tips for the Best Crockpot Potato Recipes
The best crockpot potatoes come from fresh potatoes, but sometimes you want (or need) to save time. Using frozen hash browns or chopped potatoes can be a real time saver on busy days.
Another tip for the best crock pot potatoes is to use salt sparingly when an estimate is given (like “salt to taste”), especially if you’re using other ingredients that are naturally salty – like soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, cheeses, and broths.
If you use unsalted broths, you will need more salt, but tasting before adding more is a wise choice. You don’t want to end up with an inedible dish due to over salting.
Follow each of these crockpot potato recipes step by step, and if you need to change a step, you can ask the author of the recipe for advice. But if regular broth or stock is called for (for example), and you use low-salt broth, don’t expect the recipe to turn out the same. You will likely need to add more salt at the end.
I hope that you enjoy these great crockpot potato choices and that you visit each link and comment and share freely (giving proper credit to the recipe creator).
