MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2015

"After reading other reviews about this turning out a bit dry I cut the potatoes and bacon in half but used the full amount of the remaining ingredients. (Also used Cream of Mushroom soup because that is what I had.) They came out wonderfully "saucy" with the extra sauce good on a plain saut?ed chicken breast. I did add a bit of garlic powder and some salt and pepper. Next time I think I'll just brown a couple of chicken breasts and lay them on top of the potatoes in the slow-cooker with a sprinkle of paprika... easy-peasy one pot dinner! Oh, and 5 hours was plenty of time."

"Made this yesterday. Didn't have cream of potato soup so used cream of onion and added garlic. Also used Yukon Gold potatoes instead of red. Excellent recipe! Was done in under 5 hours. Will definitely make again!"

"Didn't have time to make in the crockpot so tried them in the oven, nice option for a different side dish. My family is big on bacon so I added a little extra. Next time will add a little more milk to give it a creamier texture .Might also add some garlic or garlic salt."

"Great recipe!! I didn't add the bacon; i'm not much of a bacon person. I think fried onions would also be good mixed in. I had it in the slow cooker for 5 hours and they turned out tender as can be! I will be making this for a side at Thanksgiving!"
