Side Dish, Vegetable
February 6, 2021
2 hrs 50 mins
3 hrs 5 mins
12 baby red/russet potatoes
200g diced bacon
Herb and Garlic seasoning/salt
Fresh chives, diced
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1Lay down a sheet of non stick baking paper in slow cooker
2Place whole baby potatoes in single layer, spaced out in slow cooker
3Cook with tea towel trick in place on HIGH for 2.5hrs or until tender when tested with fork
4Pan fry bacon for 10mins until crispy
5Using a potato masher, smash down each potato top to about half way down
6Top each smashed potato with a ½ tsp of butter, cooked bacon, seasoning, chives and finally cheese
7Continue to cook on high, with tea towel still in place, for 20 minutes more or until cheese melted through
8Use an egg flip to carefully lift out each topped potato to plate
1You can make as many as these tasty potatoes as you need or can fit in your slow cooker but I have based the measurements on 12 baby potatoes to serve 6 people.
2We have these as a perfect side dish to a BBQ night!
3You can also vary the toppings to anything else you may like so you never have to have the same versions more than once if you don’t want to!
4This recipe is also in our new book READY SET SLOW

You can add them raw, they just won’t have that crispy bacon finish 🙂

Do you need to cook the bacon or could you put it on raw like when you do hot dogs?

I made these the other night, I mixed cream cheese, grated cheese, bacon and chives in a bowl and then spooned on top of each potato instead of butter and they were amazing 😋

Just cooked tonight used bacon, mushrooms, carrot ,garlic and onion. A dollop of tomato paste on each spud then cheese. Bloody fantastic!!! My 2 toddlers ate as a meal, hubby and I had steakand corn cob as well but honestly this alone would be amazing as a light meal . Have shared my thoughts all over social media and will be back for more recipes!
