Directions

5 medium-sized potatoes
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons white flour
1 clove of garlic (peeled and minced)
1 onion (peeled and sliced)
1 cup of milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Chives (as much as you like, I love chives and am embarrassed to say how much I use)



1. Wash and peel your potatoes.
2. Slice potatoes into discs, roughly half a centimeter thick. For all my non-metric friends out there, think 2-3 silver dollars stacked on top of each other.
3. Line the bottom of your slow cooker pot with the first layer of potato slices, add salt and pepper to your taste or dietary liking, then add the next layer of potato slices and add salt and pepper again. Repeat this process until you're out of potato slices or you get tired of doing it, whichever comes first.
4. Melt butter in a pot set on medium heat. As soon as the butter is melted, whisk in flour until the mixture becomes thick and doughy. Add sliced onions and minced garlic. Keep on whisking and gradually add the milk.
5. Add the shredded cheese and continue whisking until you have something thick, but smooth, or get tired of whisking, whichever comes first. Lets be real, having pockets of semi-melted cheese in your dish can be a treat.
6. Pour your cheese sauce into the slow cooker pot on top of the layered potatoes. You may need to tip the pot back and forth so the sauce gets everywhere.
7. Cook on high in the slow cooker for ~3 hours, and then check every 15-30 minutes until you can easily poke through the potatoes with a fork (in the future, just remember how much time it took your slow cooker to get it perfect and you wont need to do this again.) Use chives for garnish.
