Reynolds™ Slow Cooker Liners
1
bag (32 oz) frozen southern-style diced hash brown potatoes, thawed
1/2
cup frozen chopped onion (from 12-oz bag), thawed
1
medium stalk celery, diced (1/2 cup)
1
carton (32-oz) Progresso® chicken broth
1
cup water
3

cup milk

cup real bacon pieces (from 2.8-oz package)
4
medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
  1. Place Reynolds™ Slow Cooker Liners inside a 5- to 6 1/2 -qt slow cooker bowl. Make sure that liner fits snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl and pull the top of the liner over rim of bowl.
  2. In lined slow cooker, mix potatoes, onion, celery, broth and water.
  3. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
  4. In small bowl, mix flour into milk; stir into potato mixture. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 20 to 30 minutes or until mixture thickens. Stir in cheese until melted. Garnish individual servings with bacon and green onions. Sprinkle with pepper if desired.
Makes 6 servings (1 1/2 cups each)
Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Serve food directly from the lined slow cooker. Once your slow cooker cools, remove the liner and throw away for easy clean up.
Substitution
Instead of using purchased bacon pieces, cook 2 strips of bacon until crisp, then drain and crumble.
Success
Southern-style hash brown potatoes are diced instead of shredded. These work best in this recipe.
