Bacon and Cheese Crock-pot Potatoes

Bacon and cheese crock-pot potatoes is a wonderful side dish that you can make in your crock-pot. I got the inspiration for this recipe from Moms with Crock Pots website. 

I don’t know why, but I have been been on a big kick of using crock-pots lately. It must be the weather cooling off, this is the first weekend, we have been below 80 in Houston since May. I know for folks up north, that is nothing, but for those who live in the south, this is when you know the cooler weather is coming. I never thought you could make a side dish of potatoes in a crock-pot, and when I saw a pin on pinterest, I knew I had to make this recipe.
Potatoes, cheese, bacon, and onions are a classic taste. What I like about this recipe is that it is very easy to make. I reduced the cooking time from 10 hours on low to 4-5 hours on high. I also suggest that you put on half of the cheese during the cooking, and then once the potatoes are done, turn off the heat add the remaining cheese and top with green onions.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on the layer of potatoes and onions.
