How To Make slow cooker cheesy bacon potatoes

  • 1
    Line crock pot with foil, leaving enough to cover the potatoes when finished – this will help to not stick and to steam the potatoes – also to keep them from getting discolored or mushy.
  • 2
    Layer half each of the bacon, onions and potatoes in the crock pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper and dot with (real) butter.
  • 3
    Repeat layers of bacon, onions, potatoes and cheese. Dot with butter. Cover with remaining foil.
  • 4
    Cover and cook on low for up to 6 hours (check at 4 hours – depending on your crock pot). Add cheese for the last 20 – 30 minutes and enjoy!
