Cheddar Cheesy Potatoes

Need an easy side dish that tastes great & doesn’t cost too much? Here’s a fantastic choice. Prep. time: about 10 minutes. Costs less than $10. Feeds 6 – 8.

You’ll need:

  • 8 medium potatoes, peeled & sliced thin
  • 1 cup bacon, cooked & torn into small pieces
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese (1 1/2 cups, then 1/2 cup)
  • Sprinkle of salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Using 1/3 of the potatoes, make a layer in the crock-pot.
  2. Sprinkle 1/3 of the bacon over that.
  3. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese over that.
  4. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Repeat, making layers until all the ingredients are used.
  6. Melt butter and combine with heavy cream, stir.
  7. Pour butter/cream evenly over ingredients in the crock-pot.
  8. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  9. Turn crock-pot off and remove cover. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese over top. Put the cover back on & let sit 10 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!

Please keep in mind that cooking times may vary so the first time you make a recipe, keep an eye on the crock-pot. You may need to adjust the amount of cooking time.

  1. Thanks Shelli!
    For me, cheddar is practically an entire food group. 🙂

    glad you shared it!

    Thank you, I’ll just take this one too! Will come in handy at Christmas time 😉

    Thanks again for posting *grin

    • Hi Sandy! *waves*

      Let me know how you like it. I love it because it’s easy and everybody (kids included!) eats it. *hugs*

        Hey Shelli (hugs back 🙂

        Definitely. I’ll cook it over Christmas. I’ve had great success with the other recipes, looking forward to serving it to my family . Besides it comes ‘kid approved’ 😉

  3. I don’t know why I only get an email once in a blue moon, but I’m glad I got this one. Yum! I do a potato dish for pot lucks/parties where I make a cheese sauce (using the food group ‘cheddar’), and then add sliced smoked sausage…but this would be SO much easier…and no pan to dirty for the cheese sauce. Plus I like bacon better anyway. And if cheddar and pizza can have their own food groups (deservedly), so can bacon…which, along with brownies, I happen to view as gifts from God. 🙂

    • Hi Kristy! *waves wildly*

      Well, I didn’t know you weren’t getting them. Sorry about that. Ah, technology. I’ll poke around and try to find out why. Your dish sounds fabulous, too. And I agree that bacon is it’s own food group. Nutella should be also. Any kind of chocolate really. And brownies, of course. It’s great to catch up with you again. Cheers, darlin.
