Serves: 8-10


1½ chicken broth

4 c. diced potatoes

2 c. diced ham

½ diced onion

⅓ c. flour

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. seasoned salt

¼ tsp. cracked black pepper

½ tsp. ground thyme

1 T. dried parsley

2 c. shredded cheddar cheese, divided

¼ c. butter

2 c. frozen peas

1 c. sour cream

milk, to thin if necessary




  1. Add potatoes, ham, onion, seasonings, one cup of cheese, and flour to slow cooker. Toss together to coat in flour.
  2. Pour chicken broth over potatoes. Stir. Set slices of butter over potatoes.
  3. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  4. After cooking stir frozen peas, and sour cream into the potato mixture. The peas will thaw and warm quickly. If creamed potatoes are too thick add a little extra milk to think them out. If they are too thin make a little slurry of flour mixed with milk and add it to the potatoes. It will thicken after a few minutes. You might also want to taste and add more salt to taste.
  5. Top potatoes with remaining cheese. Put the lid back on the slow cooker and let it sit for a few minutes until the peas are melted.
  6. Serve warm!
