Does the bacon really crisp up while cooking like the picture indicates? Or do you start with cooked bacon?
Hi Gina! Thanks for your question. Personally, I like my bacon a little softer, so I just add the un-cooked bacon in with the other ingredients. In the photo, we used already cooked bacon, and added it as a garnish to the finished dish. Use which method suits you best-it will still taste delicious! Happy Crocking!
I made these a couple or weeks ago and they were fantastic! However, my “slow” cooker seems to cook fast as I started them at 11am and they were don by 2pm. What brand cooker do you use that is so nice ad slow?
Hi Marcia! I’m glad you loved these! I prefer the Crock-Pot brand of slow cookers. Here’s a link to Crock-Pot’s slow cookers on Amazon. Make sure you get the right size for you. It should be 1/2-2/3 full when crocking. Hope this helps! http://amzn.to/1ipeDJf
If making the “sliced” version, how much time should it take? 10 hours seems excessive.
The sliced version should not take as long, so I would test them at about 8 hours, but it may take longer than the 8 hours. Each slow cooker will crock differently. Enjoy Michee and Happy Crocking!
