This was great! Initially we thought it was just OK... but after a few bites it really "grew" on us and DH and I both loved it! I made a few alterations: I diced roughly a cup of bacon, sauteed it to get the grease, and threw the bacon into the pot on top of the potatoes. Then I sauteed the onion lightly in the bacon grease before dumping it (with grease) on top of the bacon. I wasn't sure whether to cook on high or low, but due to the short cook time I did it on high. After two hours I removed the lid and scooped out most of the liquid with a cup, stirred and let it simmer in the remaining liquid. This is a new favorite and I will serve it often. Shirl, thank you for a really outstanding recipe!
