"Absolutely loved this!! Will definitely add it to my regular rotation! I made this on the stovetop in a couple hours while I was home on a Sunday - you don't need the slow cooker unless you want to, but you do need time for it to thicken. This freezes beautifully in individual portions for quick weekday meals!

I used two time-saving steps: I didn't peel my potatoes, since the skin contains most of the nutrients, and I used jarred real bacon pieces because I always make such a mess frying bacon."
