Creamy Red Potatoes

This rich and creamy potato side dish is my go-to for potlucks. It’s super easy to double, so I usually do. Folks almost always take seconds, and I almost always get compliments. —Shelia Schmitt, Topeka, Kansas

    I haven't made these yet, because I didn't have the ranch dressing mix, but I want to try this recipe. It sounds good. The sodium is extremely high, but if I'm careful about the portion, I should be able to have some.

    My family liked this recipe. I always ask them to give me a rating between one and ten. The average rating was a seven. The eight hour slow cooker time surprised me, but the potatoes were good and tender. It was nice to have a major part of our meal taken care of in the morning. We especially liked the thick gravy. I'd make it again.

    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.

    These were very good. I added about a 1/2 cup of water and some garlic salt. We will be making this again!
