  • 2 1/2 pounds (1.13kg) potatoes chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups (587g) grated cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ranch seasoning
  • 8 slices of cooked bacon chopped


  • Line the Crockpot with aluminum foil, making sure you have enough on the sides to cover the potatoes. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
  • Put half of the potatoes into the Crockpot, then a half cup of cheese, half the ranch seasoning, and half of the bacon.
  • Repeat the steps with the remaining potatoes, a half cup of the cheese, the rest of the seasoning and bacon.
  • Cover with foil and place the lid on the Crockpot.
  • Cook on low for 7-8 hours, or high for 3-4 hours, until the potatoes are tender enough to your liking.
  • Open the Crockpot, remove the top layer of foil, and add the remaining half cup of cheese, allowing it to melt before serving.


  • Cut the potatoes into uniformly sized pieces for even cooking.
  • This recipe calls for fresh potatoes, but you can also use frozen potatoes – and you don't even need to thaw them. #freezerrecipe
