How to Make Crockpot Bacon & Cheese Potatoes
A love easy crockpot recipes like this! Just layer the potatoes, bacon, and cheese along with some green onions right in a foil-lined slow cooker. Cover by folding over the foil or place another piece of foil. Cook on high for about 5 hours or low for 8 - 10 hours.
Is the foil necessary?
The foil prevents the bottom of the potatoes from getting burned and also makes clean up a breeze. You could substitute parchment paper if you don't' have or want to use foil.
What size crockpot?
This dish is best prepared in a 4 qt or larger crockpot. You can double this recipe easily, but you will want to use at least a 6-quart crockpot if you do.
