One great dish you need to try is slow cooker cheesy potatoes with crispy bacon. It’s incredibly addictive and perfect if you’re looking for a delicious treat.
These cheesy potatoes are so good but they’re even better when topped with some fresh guacamole and sour cream. Of course, this will add a few more calories to the dish but it’s so worth it if you want a flavour packed meal.
You will find that this dish will reheat quite nicely so make sure you don’t go throwing out any leftovers. I recommend only storing it in the fridge as cheese doesn’t really freeze that well. It should last up to about a week in the fridge however if it smells bad just throw it out.
In addition to the bacon you can add some ground beef or shredded chicken. This will give you some meatier cheesy potatoes that taste absolutely incredible. Very similar to the something like the tater tot beef casserole but with fresh potatoes.
These potatoes can be eaten as a main meal or you can have them as a side. If you have multiple slow cookers then I highly recommend cooking up another delicious dinner recipe to go with these potatoes. For example, the mississippi roast beef goes absolutely great as a main to this dish. It is super easy to prepare much like this dish and cooks out to be deliciously tender and packed full of flavour.

Swapping the potatoes for a different variety such as sweet potato will radically change the outcome. Certainly something to try if you love experimenting a little.
If you’re worried the potatoes are uncooked then you can check them by simply using a cake skewer. Simply skewer the potato and if it goes in easily the potato is cooked.
Mixing up the cheese you use is a great way to get some very different tasting potatoes. A few cheeses you can try adding include some brie, mozzarella, goats cheese or even some gouda cheese.

If this isn’t really taking your fancy then you might be interested in the cheesy hash brown casserole. Very similar to this dish but uses hash brown potatoes with a whole bunch of cheese and cream of chicken soup.

I use a 5.5L/6 Quart slow cooker for all the recipes that I have on this website unless specified. If you have a smaller or larger slow cooker then you might need to adjust the ingredients.
