Crockpot Cheesy Cowboy Potatoes

Crockpot Cheesy Cowboy Potatoes Recipe - Family Fresh Meals Recipe

Well, howdy, folks! I’ve just been fixing myself up some cowboy-style grub.

Out on the range, cowboys had to cook their supper over an open fire, so they relied on one-pot meals. One recipe that’s come down from that time is cowboy potatoes, which basically means a pot of potatoes with stuff cooked in it.

This is a dish that no two people make alike. It usually has potatoes and onions in some sort of cheesy sauce, but some people add other veggies, some add meat, and some leave out the cheese. You can make it with beef, sausage, or beans, and the potatoes can be mashed or just diced. As long as you’ve got potatoes cooked in a pot with something, it’s cowboy potatoes.

My version of cowboy potatoes is a hearty mixture of seasoned ground beef, taters, cheese, and onion. And instead of cooking it over an open fire, I do it the easy way, in my Crockpot. So it has just two steps: brown the beef and onion together, then layer that in a pot with the potatoes, seasoning, cheese, and some butter to soak in the flavor.

Then just set on your cooker on low for four or five hours, and bang on the triangle when it’s chow time.
