I recently bought a bag of small red potatoes and now I need some meal
ideas. I was initially just going to cook them and mix with parsley,
but I've changed my mind. Can someone offer some suggestions on what I
can add to them, in a crockpot, to make a meal, something simple yet
good (meat, maybe some onions and mushrooms)? Also, how long do you
think it would take for the potatoes to get done in the crockpot?
Should I half the potatoes to speed up the cooking time? I trust your
opinion as you are the seasoned cooks. I'm just

Mark - From dinner a couple of nights ago.

Had some left over red potatoes from making potato salad over the 
weekend.  Cubed potatoes and boiled until just beginning to soften.
As potatoes boiled, put some olive oil and butter in a frying pan at low 
heat, gently cooked a couple of cloves of garlic and some red onion in 
the mix.  Keep heat low enough to not discolor garlic.  Added potatoes, 
upped the heat and added salt, pepper and fresh chopped dill.  Cook until  
potatoes get a nice crust.  Put 'em on a plate in a warm oven.

Chopped up some left over smoked pork shoulder.  Sauteed in the same pan 
as the potatoes, added 3 scrambled eggs, made a small omelette.  Added 
potatoes, sour cream and cheese to the omelette, melt cheese and enjoy.

Took all of about 20 minutes to prep and cook.

If you're planning to do an all day cook in the crockpot, I'd leave the 
potatoes whole

Its not a crock pot recipe, but one of my favorite ways to cook those
red potatoes is to wash them, then quarter them, then fry them with
a little olive oil and canola oil and sprinkle the pototoes with
paprika, pepper, and garlic powder. They go well with lots of main
dishes.

1.    Go to google.com
2.    Search the words: crock pot red potatoes
3.    Pick from 28,000 hits

Or
Quarter those little devils
Put in a large bowl and toss with EVOO and Balsamic.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, garlic (powder, granules, salt or fresh) and
toss once more
add some cracked pepper (to taste)
Bake on a cookie sheet @ 350 until tender.
Crank the over to 450 for another 10 minutes or until nicely browned.

Forget the meat - just have to potatoes for dinner.

:-)

Yes, I could have done that, but I thought I would ask here because I
love this group and help keep it active. I will say, however, that
your recipe below sounds really good, as do the other responses!

Thanks everyone, so much!

How about scalloped potatoes with say ham and cheese added? Probably doable 
in a crock pot.

Potatoes usually take 20-30 minutes to cook so I
wouldn't put them in a crock pot.

Try cutting them in cubes after they have cooked for abou
15 minutes and add them to a skillet with sliced smoked
sausage, cut up onions, and peppers.  Add about 1/4 cup water 
or white wine and cover the skillet, stirring occasionally 
until potatoes and peppers are tender.

Serve with a salad and crusty bread.

You'll have a lot left over, but it reheats very well.

Sounds really good. I hate to admit it, but I would not have a lot
left over. I love food and it shows!!!
