Crockpot Week: Cheeseburger Scalloped Potatoes

Boring old scalloped potatoes just won't do - these Cheeseburger Scalloped Potatoes are anything but boring! | www.fantasticalsharing.com #crockpot

I've noticed lately that my cooking has eased away from potatoes - a lot. I noticed a foul smell in my kitchen and it freaked me out because I couldn't figure out WHERE it was coming from. I went to make some roasted potatoes with burgers one night and found the source of my smell. My only potatoes were completely rotten. That is how little I use potatoes...I have no idea how long there were sitting there unused, but I digress...

Every once in a while I really crave a good potato dish. Moderation, right? I love shepherd's pie in the crockpot and that's what this recipe really reminded me of.

What you need:
  • 1 lb. ground beef, browned
  • 6 potatoes, sliced thinned (I used 4 baking potatoes)
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 Tbsp. dried onions
  • 1/8 tsp. thyme
  • Garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock (about 1 can)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups grated cheese
  1. Place half of the potatoes in crockpot and sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with half the flour.
  2. Top with ground beef. Sprinkle with thyme and dried onions.
  3. Then place the rest of the potatoes on top and sprinkle with rest of flour and more garlic, salt, and pepper.
  4. Bring the stock to boil and then add milk. Pour over the goodies in the crockpot. Top with 1 cup cheese.
  5. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours.
  6. Check to see if the potatoes are done by pricking with a fork. Cook for 30 more minutes if not fork tender. If tender, top with the other half the cheese, cover, and let rest until cheese melts.
