How are you cooking them? What is your recipe?
I’ve not tried to fry potatoes or onions in the slow cooker.

Just thinly sliced onions and potatoes in a skillet with some olive oil. No I have never tried the crock pot for this. I have tasted them before were they are slightly crispy. Never get that though. :( Just figured yall would surely know.

Lol…I was hoping you were not talking about a slow cooker. There are a couple of things to try. Not sure how much oil you are using but try less oil. Just enough to coat the pan. If you use more, your potatoes will just soak it up and become soggy.
I would start with the potatoes and then add the onions a little later. This is because potatoes take longer to cook.
Another idea…and this is more of a process… but you can try par-boiling the potatoes before putting them in the slow cooker.

I can also add a tip here. Do not cover the skillet your are cooking in with a lid. This traps the moisture, which adds to soggy. Use high heat and keep turning the potatoes as they brown. An iron skillet works the best.

I do mine in the oven and they are great every time. Spray a 9 x13 baking dish with Pam. Add the chopped potatoes and onions, along with salt and pepper and butter. Cover with aluminum foil and bake on 450 for about 30-40 minutes. Remove foil and stir the potatoes. Return to oven uncovered for another 20 minutes or so.

I have found the cook better in my cast iron skillet than in any other pan and I don’t cover them while they’re cooking. That’s just the way Momma always did it so it must be right, right? LOL
