    These were super easy but could have used some extra flavor in the end. I would add plain yogurt or sour cream to the mix to give it some extra “umph.”

    Can you add sour cream to this during the last 20-30 minutes of crocking? And can you cut the potatoes in cubes instead of wrapping them in foil, or will they dry out during the crocking period?

    I had half a pack of ranch seasoning so of course I added it and the potatoes were amazing!

    This was a hit at our New Year’s Eve party. I had a little trouble with the second part because my potatoes weren’t all done. The bottom ones were perfect, but the top ones weren’t quite done. I didn’t have time to crock them longer, so I had to finish the top ones in the microwave. Then the outsides got dry, but the insides were good. I just discarded the bad part. In the end, it tasted great, and our company had no idea that I had that little issue. Next time, I’ll just plan a little longer crockin’ for the first part.

    I followed this recipe exactly but I thought it was just OK for us. It needed a lot more seasoning than the recipe calls for. 6-8 large potatoes are pretty bland with only cheese, a little bacon and onions to flavor them. This definitely made enough for a huge party though! I took the leftovers and put them in a pan with a little seasoning and they were delicious for breakfast and my kids couldn’t believe they were the same potatoes we had the night before!

    OH and Erin….don’t rotate the potatoes half way through. You NEVER want to open the lid on your slow cooker while something is cooking unless the recipe tells you to. You let all the heat/steam escape when you do that and the crock has to warm back up again. I know it’s tempting to check on it, but don’t do it girl :) We’ve read you have to add 20 minutes to your cook time everything you lift the lid on your crock. Maybe that’s why your potatoes didn’t get completely done.

    SO GOOD! The potatoes I had at home were small to medium sized, so I used those instead of large baking potatoes; they cooked to the perfect texture. Also, I didn’t have bacon on hand so I substituted cooked sausage and, although I think I would have preferred the bacon, it was still delicious. Great recipe!

    My mother in law purchased me a new Crockpot for my new home warming/birthday gift just a few weeks ago and while she was visiting I wanted to make some good recipes. So I checked out this website and found the party potato’s. So we decided to make the party potato’s for my sons 3rd birthday party. These are delicious and ended up having none left as leftovers!! I would definitely make these again for a party or even an appetizer. The potato’s were nice and soft and made the house smell delicious too!

    Sounds like you need to crock your potatoes a little longer. A 5qt or more should work well. Happy Crockin’!

    I loved these, but my mom and hubby were turned off a little because the potatoes were still a little crunchy. Are they supposed to be? I could only put 4 potatoes on the bottom and 3 on top. I rotated them about halfway through. Should I have used a bigger Crockpot?
