If you’re a regular reader of It Is a Keeper, you know I love my slow cooker. It’s one of the hardest working appliances I have.
It’s a life saver on busy days because I can just toss in the ingredients, turn it on and walk away. Some of my favorite easy crock pot recipes are Slow Cooker Lasagna, Balsamic Beef and Sticky Chicken.
But, did you know that you that you can made side dishes in your slow cooker? You most certainly can!

The recipe starts with Crystal Farms Simply Potatoes. I found them in the refrigerated aisle of my grocery store (near the dairy aisle). Simply Potatoes are fresh potatoes and onion (never frozen) and made with real ingredients. The best part is, you don’t have to peel or shred them. The hard work is done for you.
All you need to do is add the potatoes to your slow cooker, mix in salt, pepper, ranch seasoning, prepared bacon and cheese, cover and cook. It’s that easy!
