Slow-Cooked Potatoes with Spring Onions

I love the simplicity of this recipe, as well as the ease of preparation with my slow cooker. And everyone always likes roasted potatoes, even my pickiest child! If desired, top with shredded or crumbled cheese. —Theresa Gomez, Stuart, Florida

    Although I sauteed the potatoes in a pan (too late to use the slow cooker) and didn't add the sweet onion (not enough potataoes), I found this recipe not only to be easy but simply tasty, too!

    This is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to prepare potatoes. Everyone gave them rave reviews. They're just as good the next day if you reheat them in the oven wrapped in foil. I cooked them for 2 hours on high and 2 hours on low because of a time crunch. I'm going to make them again this weekend and cook per the recipe. All I know is that if you love potatoes, you'll love this recipe.
