They are going to be excited as the soft texture of these potatoes blends with the unmistakable deliciousness of cheese in their palates.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 6 1/2 to 7 hours

Servings: 5 to 6


  • 8 medium size red potatoes
  • 8 ounces of Cheddar cheese (cut in cubes)
  • 8 ounces of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of onions (chopped)
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups of crushed corn flakes (optional)


  1. First, rinse the potatoes under running water to remove all the dirt they may have.

  2. Carefully, peel the potatoes and cut them in slices.

  3. Add the potatoes to the crockpot.

  4. Add the cheese, the sour cream, the onions, and the cream of mushroom soup to the crockpot.

  5. Cook everything on low heat until tender, for about 7 hours.

  6. If you want the corn flakes, add them 1 hour before the potatoes are ready. Why? Because one hour in low heat is going to give them the right temperature without ruining the texture, too much time and you are not going to love the result (too mushy).

  7. Serve and enjoy your meal.
