Total Time
4 hrs 15 mins
  • ¼ pound bacon diced
  • ½ medium onion; sliced
  • 4 medium red potatoes thinly sliced
  • ½ pound grated cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper; to taste
  • 2 to 4 TBS butter
  1. Begin by lining your crock pot with aluminum foil. I sprayed my crock pot liner with non-stick cooking spray first and then lined it with the aluminum foil.
  2. Slice the potatoes.
  3. Dice the bacon, if you are adding it raw, OR dice the pre-cooked bacon.
  4. Start layering everything in the crock pot, beginning with the potatoes, then the bacon and cheese, sprinkling with salt and pepper; I was able to get three layers.
  5. Dot the top layer with the 2 tbs. of butter.
  6. Cover with another piece of foil AND THEN THE CROCK POT LID and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or on high for 2 to 4 hours.

Recipe Notes
  1. You can either pre-cook your bacon or put it in raw. I have tried it both ways and like it better pre-cooked. I always cook my bacon in the oven...less mess!
  2. My crock pot cooks really fast and I always check after 2 hours and if the potatoes are fork tender, I know they're ready.
