Our family are potato lover's for sure. Any way you slice, bake, fry, or mash them ! And what could make them better but some cheese? So I thought I would post a very simple recipe using a box of potatoes au gratin that I came up with one day while having a family cookout to cut corners and not use my oven. Hope you like them as well as we do.
Preheat your small crock pot on high. Add a box of potatoes au gratin and add the amount of hot water, milk and butter and cheese packet as directed on the box of potatoes. Set crock pot to low setting.
1/2 cup sour cream
1 small minced onion
1/2 jar real bacon bits
1 cup of any cheddar cheese, Velveeta, or Cheez Whiz , whatever you prefer to use.
1/2 cup hot water
Stir this together and cook about 3 hours on low stirring a couple times untill tender.
Recipe can be doubled for a larger group .
