1Bake potatoes until done(I bake mine in the microwave). Let cool. Cut into cubes (you can leave the peel on). Pour whipping cream into crockpot, add 6 cans of cream of potato soup, add potatoes, onion (if desired), and bacon bits. Cook in crockpot on high for 1 hour, then turn to low for 2-3 hours. If desired, top with cheddar cheese when served.
