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!

    Love the idea of potatoes in the crock pot especially here in Sacramento where it’s to hot to want to use the oven to bake anything. I bet that you could partially cook these potatoes and then finish them when you got to the camp ground. Yum!!!
