Bacon Potato Bake Recipe

This cheesy potato casserole is always popular. It's a nice change from mashed potatoes and with a bread crumb and crumbled bacon topping, it looks as good as it tastes. —Helen Haro, Yucaipa, California

"Apache I would make the recipe as is and check to make sure it doesn't get dry. If it does you could add a small amount of milk and recheck every so often. Hope this helps."

"Hi, I have a question it is probably a dumb one but I wanted to know when you put these in the crock pot, do you add water? and if so how much? Thanks so much for any help anybody can give me. :) I did give it 3 stars, just because it looks delicious."

"I also added onion for flavor. Next time I will probably do in slow cooker. Potatoes got to soft after boiling them. Were more like mashed potatoes. They were a nice change though."

"My family enjoyed this recipe very much I followed the direction in putting it together but I did put it in the slow cooker to bake. I just left the lid slightly off to keep the bread from getting moist. It was a nice change to our regular mashed potato side."

"This recipe was alright. Not too much savory flavor, but ok to eat for something different."

"I made this for Thanksgiving dinner. I used 5 pounds of (unpeeled) red potatoes. Next time I won't waste my time slicing the potatoes I will just mash them. I also didn't have any room in the oven to bake it, so I put it in the crock pot on high for 1-2 hours until the cheese was melted and then on warm until it was time to eat."
