    Wasn’t impressed with this recipe. Made for christmas morning, so where it said high 8-9 hours.i started it around midnight. Got up around 6 and it looked burnt, but the cheese wasn’t completely melted yet. I’m not a huge crock pot user so I’m not even sure what would of made this.better?
    More liquid, bigger potatoes, cooled on low?
    Super bummed right now!

    This recipe was a disaster. I even cooked it on Low for 8 hours because I thought there was no way it wouldn’t burn on High. It burned anyway! The potatoes are brown, the cheese is dark brown. So disappointed.

  • Jenny says:

    We put them on high for 7.5 hours and burn the heck out of them. Should it be put on low?
