Slow Cooker Cheesy Bacon Ranch Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 3 pounds red potatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Cook Bacon: Arrange bacon slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until brown and crispy, about 12-14 minutes. Allow the bacon to cool before crumbling it. Set aside.
  3. Prepare Slow Cooker: Line a slow cooker with aluminum foil, leaving enough to overhang to wrap the potatoes on top. Coat the foil with nonstick spray.
  4. Layer Potatoes: Place a layer of chopped red potatoes evenly into the slow cooker. Top with a portion of shredded cheddar cheese, Ranch Seasoning, and crumbled bacon. Repeat these layers two more times, reserving 1/2 cup of cheese for later.
  5. Cook in Slow Cooker: Cover the potatoes with the overhanging aluminum foil and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours.
  6. Add Remaining Cheese: Sprinkle the reserved 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese over the cooked potatoes. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  7. Serve: Once the cheese is melted, serve the slow-cooked cheesy bacon ranch potatoes immediately, garnished with chopped chives.

Enjoy this delicious and comforting dish with the rich flavors of bacon, cheese, and ranch seasoning!
