Default slow cooker potato experiment

It was a win!

I made meatloaf yesterday, but had DH put it in the oven as I was at work. Was trying to figure out what to serve with it, as I worked later, and the kids have to eat early to get to swimming on Monday nights

I did an experiment, and it worked!

I cut up about 8 large-ish red skin potatoes. Threw them into a slow cooker, which I had oiled with a bit of olive oil (to avoid sticking) and put in some minced garlic. I cut them into...8's I think. Similar size to what I'd cut for roasting. Then I sprinkled with rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cut up a bit of butter (about 2-3 tbsp) and put on top. Turned it on high at 1pm. DH stirred them at 4, and turned down to low. They were really good.

Too bad the potatoes met their fate in the garbage can yesterday. Otherwise, that would totally be part of tomorrow's dinner.
