These taters are full of flavor with onions and bacon. And, did I mention cheese!

This is an easy dish to prepare and a perfect side to accompany so many dishes.

This reminds me of a very good fondue dinner I had in Switzerland courtesy ofb the Swiss air force when I was there in '95 on business. It was in this medevial walled city. They used a micture opfguyere and some other mild cheeses alomg with Swiss cheese in stead of the normal cheeses whichn they said was very strongand whichwe might not enjoy if not used to eating it. Whatever they used, It was delicious and they had potato chunks to dipinto the fondue, and of course there was plenty of beer to drinj along with the meal. If any one is traveling to Europe, I would very strongly reccomend including time in Switzerland in your itinerary. It is an amazing country with some very old medival towns to explore, modern cities to enjoy, and breathtaking scenery. I was fortunate to be able to go there twice on businessv in the mid '90s. I was able to affordtakingMy wife with me and she was able to accompany me the second time, so it made for a nice vacatiion even though I had to work during the days Don

Great recipe DeeDee! I was looking for a crockpot cheesy potato recipe to be cooking at home while I was at work all day. Potluck after work and no time to throw something together before I leave! This recipe turned out great. I did have a variation that I would like to share with the crowd - instead of using raw potatoes, I used the country style hash browns (2lbs) to reduce prep time. Threw everything in crockpot at 7am, and it was throuroughly done by 12:30pm! So, if using frozen potatoes I would suggest 3 hours of cooking on Low, and then just warm until you need to serve. I have yet to try the potatoes with the bacon on top - but that will make it heavenly! Thanks so much!
