The Consumption: Easy Cheesy Party Potatoes

Another success Crockin-N-Rollin!  This time I was able to show off my skills at a good friend's cookout.

After I filled the crock with all of the ingredients, I went to spend a day on the beach...when I returned, the cheese had melted into a gooey dream!  Reminded me of pulling a slice of pizza from a pie, and the melty mozzerella strings keep extending, until you must use your fingers to cut the tether from the actual Za (Pizza).  I stirred the ingredients and it became extremely creamy.  Once cooked, I poured into a serving dish.  I added the chopped chives and real bacon bits to the top, which added great colors for presentation, and headed to the party.

We had arrived just in time to add the cheese dish to the buffet line and everyone was asking about the potatoes.  No one could believe I made a potato casserole with a slow cooker.  I explained how easy it was and all of the ladies agreed, they would have to try this recipe at home.  By the end of the night, I was wishing I made calling cards for the blog.
