Ingredients and Substitutions
Be sure to check out the variations section below for some alternate seasoning ideas.
- Potatoes - I used small, creamer potatoes. You can also use red potatoes or Yukon gold.
- Oil - Olive oil or avocado oil are both great options but any mild flavored oil that tolerates moderate heat will work well.
- Lipton Onion Soup Mix or make your own with this recipe!
- Garlic Powder or fresh minced garlic
- Beef stock or water

Slow-cooker roasted potatoes are the absolute perfect set-it-and-forget-it side dish. Potatoes benefit so much from being slow-cooked as it allows them to absorb much more flavor during the cooking process.
Start out by cutting clean potatoes into 1" pieces. There is no need to be exact, but try to make sure that the potatoes are all a similar size.
Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker with the potatoes. Give everything a good stir and make sure that all the potatoes are coated.
Cook the potatoes on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, or until fork tender. During the last 30 minutes remove the lid to allow any excess liquid to evaporate.
Tip: These potatoes will be beautifully caramelized, but they won't have the crispiness of oven-roasted potatoes. If you would like them to be a little crisper, transfer them to a foil-lined baking sheet after slow cooking. Place them under your ovens broiler for 3-6 minutes, tossing them halfway.
Here are some of my favorite ways to change up the flavors in this recipe:
- Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes - Replace the onion soup mix with Greek seasoning to taste and add the juice of one lemon. When the cooking time is complete garnish the potatoes with fresh chopped parsley and lemon zest.
- Fiesta Potatoes - Replace the Lipton soup mix with 1 teaspoon of onion powder and 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning.
- Loaded Potatoes - Omit the onion soup mix. Season to taste with seasoned salt and add 1 cup of cooked and chopped bacon to the potatoes in step 2. When the potatoes are finished cooking serve them topped with sour cream, cheddar cheese, and sliced green onions.

Hint: Onion soup mix has a lot of salt. If you replace it with something else, be sure to add additional salt to the potatoes to taste.
Potatoes are best enjoyed just after cooking. If you do happen to have leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to five days. When you are ready to eat them, heat them up in the oven or in a hot skillet for the best results.
Cook small or diced potatoes on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Whole, baking potatoes should be cooked on low for 8 hours or high for 5 hours.
It is possible to overcook potatoes in the slow cooker. Overcooked potatoes may get tough or burn. If you are worried about overcooking your potatoes check on them every hour or so and turn the slow cooker off or set it to keep warm when the potatoes are fork tender.
It is not necessary to boil the potatoes before roasting them in a slow cooker.
Yes! I love to add carrots or Brussels sprouts along with the potatoes. Just be sure to use vegetables with longer cooking time. Most root vegetables will work great
Yes, you can. After the potatoes have finished cooking you can keep them in the slow cooker on the keep-warm setting for several hours.
