Lemon Red Potatoes

Lemon Red Potatoes
I rarely ever make potatoes in the crockpot. That's all going to change now as these are my new favorite! For such a simple recipe, these potatoes pack alot of flavor. I did increase the amount of lemon juice than stated in the recipe. I also used bottled lemon juice rather than fresh squeezed.

Lemon Red Potatoes
6 servings
Ideal slow-cooker size: 4-quart

1/2 tsp black pepper

Cut a strip of peel from around the middle of each potato. Place potatoes and water in slow cooker.

Thank you for linking to Menu Monday! Your recipe could not have come at a better time for me!!! We harvested our first crop of red potatoes yesterday and I was trying to decide how to use them. I thought of baking them but didn't want to run the oven as it's been very hot here. I've made sweet potatoes in a crockpot and wondered if I could do something similar with red potatoes. As I was thinking about it you went and submitted this recipe to my collection! :-) I am definitely going to try it. Thanks again!

Hi Patty,
Thank you for commenting on my blog about my Tomato Feta Pasta Salad. I just love this salad the way the recipe reads, but several times I have eaten it as my meal when I add shredded pieces of chicken to it. So, so good! Quick and Easy! I really enjoyed reading your blog. I'll bet the smoothie class you took was so much fun! No matter what time of the day or night, I am always ready for a smoothie, and I love your recipes for them. I'm your newest follower!!
