  1. In your recipe for shredded Cracked Out Potatoes, you include a package of ranch seasoning. Would that work in the crock pot as well? I've tried the shredded ones, and they're delicious! I just need something for the slow cooker this time. (Apologies if this is a duplicate post.)

  2. A few years ago I came across the most delicious cheesy potatoes I had ever eaten. I asked for the recipe and it was the same as I had always made (and the recipe you provide above), except french onion dip was substituted for the sour cream. The flavor was out of this world! I will definitely be trying my next batch this way, in the slow cooker, and can't wait to see how the addition of the bacon lends to the already delicious flavor. Thanks!

    1. I love using French Onion Dip in casseroles! I am making the French Onion potato casserole this weekend. It is so yummy. I bet it wold work great in this recipe too.
