Serves: 8ish
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 3 pounds of chopped potatoes (preferably red)
  • 1 c shredded cheddar + ½ c. shredded cheddar
  • 1 T ranch dressing mix powder
  • 2 T chopped chives
  1. Make your bacon - put it in a cold 375ºF oven and bake for 20 - 30 minutes until crisp (or pan-fry it, if that's your preference). When it's done, let drain on paper towels, then crumble it when it's cool enough to handle.
  2. Line a crock pot with tinfoil, leaving enough of an overhand so you can wrap it across the top. Coat tinfoil with cooking spray.
  3. Layer ⅓ of the potatoes on the bottom of the crock pot, top with ⅓ cup of shredded cheddar, 1 tsp Ranch dressing powder, and ⅓ of your bacon. Repeat twice more.
  4. Cover potatoes with foil; cover crock pot and cook on low heat 7 - 8 hours or high heat 3 - 4 hours.
  5. Sprinkle with remaining ½ c. cheese and cover again until cheese is melted, 1 - 2 minutes.
  6. Serve sprinkled with chives.
