All day long
I could eat potatoes every day for the rest of my life. Mash ’em, smash ’em, roast ’em, fry them, boil ’em – it doesn’t matter. I love me some taters. And you can microwave them! The Little Potato Company makes it easy because they give you the container to microwave them in along with the seasoning. Doesn’t get much easier than that!
Cheese and bacon. Bacon and Cheese.
I’m having a little fun with the microwaveable creamer potatoes today. They are the perfect size (no peeling necessary!) and they cook up so creamy and tender that these could be used as a side or party food! If you can’t find the microwave little potatoes then just go with any of the Little Potato Company varietals. You may just need to cut them up into smaller chunks.
2 packages (2 lbs.) Microwave Ready Three Cheese Little Potatoes, halved, divided use
1 tbsp. paprika, divided use
kosher salt & ground black pepper, to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced, divided use
3 c. shredded cheddar, divided use
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled, divided use
1/4 c. sliced green onions, divided use

Line a 6-quart slow cooker with foil and spray with no-stick cooking spray.
This will make clean-up a breeze later!
Add half the potatoes into the bottom of the slow cooker. Season potatoes with the one of the packets of cheese (that came with the Little Potatoes), paprika, salt, pepper and garlic.
Top with half the cheese, garlic, crumbled bacon, and green onions.
Repeat for the second layer: potatoes, cheese seasoning, paprika, salt & pepper, garlic, shredded cheese, bacon & green onions.
Fold foil around potatoes and place lid on the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low until potatoes are tender, 2 to 3 hours.
Serve with a drizzle of sour cream.
