      Yes I cooked last night for our Easter dinner and I have some burned onions and burned cheese. Definetly could cook it for less time.

    Can you cook on high for a shorter time? Or will they burn?
    I would love to make for dinner, but only have about 6 hours

    Whenever I make bacon for recipes, I like to make it in the oven to make it crispy since it will soften somewhat while its added to the dish.

    How about using the Reynolds’ crock pot liners? I love those things – and you can just rinse them out and put them in the plastic recycle bin afterward! :)

    I too, wanted to try these, but didn’t have the time to wait for the time in the crock pot. So I followed this recipe, except for I did it in the oven at 400 degrees for an hour in a 9 x 13 baking dish covered tightly by aluminum foil. They came out AMAZING!! Thanks for the recipe.

    Has anyone had any experience in making the mixture and then freezing it before cooking? I am trying to start freezer cooking and this looks as though it would be something I would make often but don’t have the time to prepare each time we want to eat it.

    Has anybody made them on high? Also, do you add the green onion in with the other onion or wait until the very end to add them?

    I didn’t cook the bacon & thought it was awesome. Love not having deal with the bacon cooking mess. I used a combination of Red & Yukon Gold potatoes that equalled a total of 2 lbs., 1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese, only green onions, no salt or butter (thought bacon added enough salt). I added a little sour cream to some of mine to make it like a loaded potato but hubby felt like they didn’t need anything. We had this as a meal for two & still had a few leftovers. Will be making this again for sure.

    Sorry forget to mention above that I used the oven recommendation for 1 hr @ 400 degrees and it worked perfectly.

  9. Lupe says

    Can you make in the oven?? Dont have a crockpot and would really like to try this before the cooking inspiration leaves me!

    I just started this is one crockpot and the Sour Cream and Bacon in another. I can’t wait to see how they turn out!

    • Suzette says

      Everything turned out wonderful! I will definitely be making them both again. The chicken was tender and the potatoes were delicious. Great dinner!
