You really cant get any more simple with the steps of this recipe in all honesty!

- Set slow cooker on low and cook for 4 hours.
- Remove lid and sprinkle with remaining cheese and cover for 15 minutes until cheese is melted.
CAN YOU MAKE THIS RECIPE IN THE OVEN?
100% yes you can. We do make this in the oven from time to time, but the crockpot has been one of my favorite ways to make it when we are short on time around dinnertime and we want something that is ready to go when we are.
To make it in the oven you do all the same steps as you would make it in the crockpot. You add all your cheese into mixture instead of separating it out.
You bake at covered with tinfoil at 350 for about 40-45 minutes removing the foil in the last 10-15 minutes of baking to get that cheese nice and bubbly.
So with this cheesy potato casserole recipe you can make it in the crockpot or in the oven, whichever way is easiest for you.
I really like to do the crockpot because the cheese on top in there gets really gooey and I adore gooey cheese so this is my preferred method!
