Slow Cooker Bacon Cheese Potatoes

Follow me on lovers recipes


  • 1/4 pound bacon, diced
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced (or if you use a new potato or Yukon gold then halve)
  • 1/2 pound Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced or shredded
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Green onions for garnish


Bake the bacon in the oven so that it is “done” and browned. Dice the bacon into small pieces. Line slow cooker with foil, leaving enough to cover the potatoes when finished. This helps steam the potatoes, make it so they don’t stick, and to keep them from getting discolored or mushy. Layer half each of the bacon, onions and potatoes in the crockpot. Season to taste with salt and pepper and dot with (real) butter. Repeat layers of bacon, onions, potatoes and cheese. Dot with butter. Cover with remaining foil. Put the slow cooker cover on top and cook on low for up to 6 hours (check at 4 hours, depending on your slow cooker). Add cheese for the last 20 to 30 minutes and enjoy!
