Crockpot Ham and Potatoes



The crockpot ham and potatoes recipe is one that you have to try. Good potato dishes can be done with little effort and a typical way to illustrate that fact is by using a crockpot. The slow cooker is a great help; you can combine a good number of ingredients on it without having to keep a constant eye on the cooking process. There are times when preparing a meal when you have to check and stir it basically every 5 to 10 minutes.


The thought of all your hard work getting ruined just because you relaxed for a bit while cooking is something that comes to the mind of almost every person once in a while. By using a slow cooker you can plan your meals several hours ahead without the need to worry about food burning or other “food accidents” that typically occur while using the traditional cooking methods. You can even dedicate your time to other house chores as the exquisite dish gets ready.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: about 8 hours

Servings: 6 to 8

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices of ham
  • 10 red potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup (other options: condensed cream or celery soup)
  • paprika
  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)

Directions:

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them in slices.

  2. Put 4 slices of ham, half of potatoes and onions in the crockpot.

  3. Add salt and pepper to taste, then add the grated cheese.

  4. Next, add the remaining slices of ham, potatoes and onion.

  5. Add the cream of mushroom soup and add the paprika on top.

  6. Cook on low heat for 10 hours or until potatoes are tender.


The crockpot ham and potatoes recipe is simple and does not require a vast number of ingredients. You will only need ham, salt and pepper, paprika, Cheddar cheese, onions, cream of mushroom soup, and potatoes.


Tip:

A detail to keep in mind when using the slow cooker as a general rule is to put the potatoes and other vegetables at the bottom or near the sides while the ham should be close to the top. The reason for this is that ham and most of the meats tend to get cooked faster than vegetables; that way the appropriate balance can be achieved and every part of the dish can be ready at the same time.
