Crockpot Roasted Potatoes

I love using my slow cookers. As in plural. I have three that get regular use. Two of them are large 6-qt. ones, then I have a smaller 4-qt one. It's not unusual for me to have two, and sometimes all three, going at once.

This recipe is perfect when one slow cooker is being used for a large roast or other main dish meat. But you can make these potatoes anytime. They're so easy!

Here's what you need:

2-3 lbs. small potatoes, depending on how big your crockpot is
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 TBSP dried parsley
1 teas garlic powder
1 teas sea salt
1/2 teas black pepper

Wash your potatoes well, removing the dirt from the skin. Leave the skins on. Place in a lightly greased crockpot.

Combine the butter and seasonings. Pour over the potatoes. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or on high for 3 hours.
You'll know they're done when you can pierce them easily with a fork. Remove the potatoes from the crockpot and pour the liquids over them before serving.
Simple and delicious!

*Note: You can cut the potatoes into wedges if you like. Adjust the cooking time accordingly, though. It won't take as long for them to cook through. However, I like just throwing them in there whole....takes less prep time!
