Cheesy Bacon Potatoes (slow cooker)

For years and years, I have taken the same few things to summer picnics and parties - cheesy potatoes, eclaire dessert, and strawberry salad being the most common.  But I am always looking for something new to contribute.  In May, when at the birthday party for one of my favorite little boys, his amazing mom served these amazing potatoes.  Fortunately, she was willing to share the recipe!  They were a huge hit when I took them to a July 4th party.

  • 5 lbs. golden potatoes - cubed (I used red and you can make this with peels or without)
  • 1 lb. Velveeta – cubed
  • 1 pint REAL Mayo
  • 1 lb. bacon – cooked in pieces
  • 1 large onion

  1. Peel (or scrub) and cut potatoes.  Boil them until tender.  
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, cube Velveeta, cut onion, and cook bacon.  
  3. Drain potatoes.  Spray Crock-pot.  Combine the ingredients.  Stir a couple times.  Cover and cook for 1 ½ hours on high.

Difficulty: pretty easy
Time: The potato scrubbing took me a while - I actually think it would have been quicker to peel and wash.  Otherwise, about 20 minutes to prepare and then 1.5 hours in the crock pot.
