Recipe Thursday - Bacon Cheese Potatoes In The Crockpot

Recipe Thursday - 
Bacon Cheese Potatoes - Crockpot

I found this delicious recipe at Moms With Crockpots.  I cannot wait to see whatever yummy recipes she has.  I saw this and had to try it.  I was not disappointed.  It was so delicious and so easy!!  I made a few changes to her recipe.  You can check out her original recipe HERE.

Bacon Cheese Potatoes - In the Crockpot


1/4 pound bacon diced
2 medium onions, thinly sliced (I only had 1 red onion on hand.  My hubby is not a big onion eater so 1 was plenty for us.)
4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 pound shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
green onion (I did not have any on hand so left out.  would love to try next time)

Time to Cook:

First line your crockpot with foil being sure to leave enough to cover the potatoes.  {I had never done this before, but it worked great and cooked the potatoes beautifully}  Be sure to spray the foil.  So the cheese does not stick to the foil.

Then thinly slice your potatoes and dice your onions and bacon.  I did cook my bacon first, but it is not necessary.

As you can see some of my potatoes slices are not perfectly thin.  Slicing is not my thing.  The potatoes still came out soft and perfect.

I decided to add a hand-full of Imo's Provel cheese.  This is a favorite in our house.  Any provel cheese would work.  I did not measure.  I just took a bunch, diced it up and added it to the layers.

Layer half each of potatoes, onions, bacon and cheese.  Add a little butter (1 tablespoon) and season to taste.


Repeat layers on potatoes, onions, bacon, cheese and butter, seasonings and cover with remaining foil.

The original recipes says cook on low for 10 - 12 hours.

I did not have that much time and I was afraid the cheese would burn.  I cooked on high for 4 hours.  The dish turned out perfectly, but I would recommend if you are in a rush cooking on high for 2-3 hours then turning to low for the last 1-3 hours.

Enjoy!! - We had this for dinner last night and I served with steamed veggies and cottage cheese (family favorite).  If I were to   when I cook this again I would make a double batch.  We ate everything!!  There are only 3 in my family.  It was so delicious!!

Pin It!


  1. Oh Yum! I love cheesy potatoes and most crockpot meals! And I am very familiar with Imo's Pizza since I have family in the St. Louis area. I think the Provel is a St. Louis thing! :)

    1. My hubby LOVES Imo's Pizza. Me being from Iowa I like the thicker crust. I do love the Provel cheese! We often make our own pizzas and pile it on! lol

  2. Yum! And so simple to put together too. I love recipes that use a Crock Pot. I will definitely be printing this one up to try.

    1. It really was simple and so good! Will be one that I make again and again!

  3. Wouldn't these be great when you're having a crowd over - just fill up the crock pot and forget about it till dinner.

  4. Now this looks really good! I am a new follower from The Let Them Eat Cake Hop. I am a new follower. Come on over and say hello.

  6. I am so jealous that you live in St. Louis. My little family took our first real vacay there this summer, well split between there and Branson. It was beautiful. We got to go up in the arch and everything. Looking forward to going back next year.
