3lbs of Red or Golden Potatoes, chopped

6 Slices of Bacon

1 1/2 Cups of Cheddar Cheese

1 Tablespoon of Dry Ranch Dressing Mix

1 Tablespoon of Chives


Cook bacon in a preheated oven at 400°for 12-14 minutes or until brown and crispy. Set aside then crumble when cool.

Line your crock pot with foil. Make sure you leave enough extra foil so that you can fully close it on top of the potatoes. Spray with PAM or wipe down with oil. Place the chopped potatoes into the crock pot. Make sure you top each layer of potatoes with ranch dressing, cheese, and bacon. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cheese to put on top at the end. Cover the potatoes and cook on low for about 8 hours or on high for about 3 hours.

When finished, sprinkle the potatoes with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Recover for another few minutes until it melts. Top with the chives and serve.
