Recipe by Bonnie G 2
READY IN: 4hrs 20mins


  • 4
    medium sized potatoes, unpeeled and cut into cubes
  • 1
    large onion, thinly sliced
  • 12
    lb bacon
  • 2 12
    cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3
    ounces ranch dressing mix, dry packet
  • 2
    tablespoons butter
  • 12
    cup sliced green onion


  • Cook the bacon until it is just done but not too crisp.
  • Line your slow cooker with aluminum foil. Leave enough to over hang so that you can wrap the potatoes on the top once in the slow cooker.
  • Spray the inside of the foil with cooking spray and layer half of the potatoes along the bottom. Next layer with half of the bacon, green onions, onion, ranch packet and top with cheese. Repeat the layers and top with cheese reserving ½ cup.
  • Cover the potatoes with remaining foil. This helps them to steam and cook perfectly. Cook on low for 4-6 hours in your slow cooker. Once finished, top with remaining ½ cup cheese and let melt on the top.
  • Garnish with fresh green onions if desired.
