Recipe Tips

- Microwaving potatoes to partially cook them accomplishes 2 things – it decreases cooking time in slow cooker. It also keeps the potatoes from turning dark.

- To prepare for 6-quart slow cooker, double all ingredients. Microwave potatoes in two batches. Adjust total slow cooker cooking time to 4 hours on Low heat setting.
