"I made these to take to my mom's Thanksgiving dinner and they were a huge hit!! They were so easy to put together and I loved how you cook them in the crock pot . I could let them cook while I went to my in laws Thanksgiving dinner.the only thing the cook time was off. I feel like the potatoes needed to be on little cubes not quartered."

"Cream cheese in the slow cooker has never turned out good in my opinion, but I tried this recipe anyway. I was right, you must stir frequently so it doesn't turn all yellow/brown and yucky looking. It needed something more than what was in the recipe, I added a little salt, but that didn't make it better. Don't waste the cream cheese, etc., to make these potatoes."

"The 1st time I made this dish was for Thanksgiving potluck at church. I was looking for something easy and I had most ingrediants on hand. They were a big hit. I have since made them several times. The only thing I did different was to add a soup can of water."

"This recipe would win over any crowd. I am always asked for the recipe when I take it to a gathering. For a change, I have added a clove of garlic and used cream of chicken soup. I would also suggest adding a can of water to keep it from getting too dry."

"I think this is great as a meal, with ham chunks and frozen peas added to it. Add jello or fruit for dessert."
