Expert Tips

Serve food directly from the lined slow cooker. Once your slow cooker cools, remove the liner and throw away for easy clean up.

Instead of using purchased bacon pieces, cook 2 strips of bacon until crisp, then drain and crumble.

Southern-style hash brown potatoes are diced instead of shredded. These work best in this recipe.
