This was unbelievably awesome! I threw everything in the pot and my husband turned it on when he went to bed at 2 AM. The only change I made was using salted butter and 6 slices of bacon. I was not sure how thick to slice the potatoes, so I did approximately 1/4" slices (unpeeled). I also figured that I was supposed to crumble the bacon :) The only problem I had is that since I have a large crockpot (6 1/2 qt.), smaller recipes seem to cook much faster, so I used the low setting and after 6 hours the edges were burning a little bit. I have been told that the crockpot should be at least half full and it wasn't, so I am either going to have to buy a smaller crockpot, or double the recipe! Since these were sooooo great, I am sure no one would mind. It was so nice to come down in the morning and only have to whip up a big batch of scrambled eggs and toast! Thanks so much for sharing this is difficult to cook a nice breakfast for a family of six and this made it easy. P.S. I was going to take a picture, but they ate them so fast, I couldn't get one! I will try next time...thanks again!

I put this in the crockpot Saturday night and on Sunday morning we awoke to the most marvelous smells! This was delicious! I cooked it on low however and to solve the problem another reviewer had of the potatoes being grey I tossed them in a mixture of of cream of tartar and water. I got that tip from a cookbook and it works like a charm. Thanks for a great recipe!

I gave it 4 stars because it was easy to put together, smelled great while cooking and tasted good when done. I would consider this a "family only" recipe simply because the potatoes didn't keep their nice white color like you'd expect in a hash-brown recipe. They were greyish color. It didn't effect the taste but I wouldn't like to serve them to company.
