This hearty Crockpot Cheese Bacon Potatoes recipe is a great dinner side dish for holidays or BBQs. When you’re craving comfort food, this slow cooker potato recipe is a good choice.
My crockpot was in overdrive this week. Not only did I make these crockpot cheese bacon potatoes, but I made up another slow cooker full of my Crockpot Cafe Rio Chicken as well as Crockpot French Toast. It’s quickly becoming a staple in this house, the chicken, not the French toast. So nice for salads and burritos throughout the week. It’s certainly saved my bacon……..speaking of bacon!
Crockpot Cheese Bacon Potatoes
I thought I’d make a potato dish this week when my husband also planned on making something meaty from the BBQ. He’s your typical meat and potatoes kind of guy. I picked up some golden mini potatoes and threw them in the crockpot……..with a few other delicious items. I think the next time I make this crockpot cheese bacon potato dish, I’ll omit the butter. Combined with the cheese and the bacon, they were a bit greasy. Not that they weren’t good, because they were, but I think they would have been just as good without the extra grease. I ended up using onion flakes when I discovered that I didn’t have any green onions. I think the green onions added during the last hour would give it a nice flavor and color.
I’m also eager to try a few instant pot recipes, like this Corn Chowder with Bacon soup! Bacon makes everything better!
HOW TO MAKE CHEESE BACON POTATOES IN THE SLOW COOKER
