SLOW COOKER CHEESY BACON RANCH POTATOES

 




 

The easiest potatoes you can make right in the crockpot – perfectly tender, flavorful and cheesy!
YIELD: 8 SERVINGS

PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES

COOK TIME: 8 HOURS, 15 MINUTES

TOTAL TIME: 8 HOURS, 30 MINUTES




INGREDIENTS:

6 slices bacon

3 pounds red potatoes, chopped

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided

1 tablespoon Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix, or more, to taste

2 tablespoons chopped chives

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Spread bacon in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until brown and crispy, about 12-14 minutes. Let cool before crumbling; set aside.
  3. Line a slow cooker with aluminum foil, leaving enough to overhang to wrap the potatoes on top, and coat with nonstick spray. Place a layer of potatoes evenly into the slow cooker. Top with cheese, Ranch Seasoning and bacon, repeating 2 more times and reserving 1/2 cup cheese.
  4. Cover potatoes with aluminum foil. Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high heat for 3-4 hours, or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Cover and cook until melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with chives.
