Buffalo Wing Potatoes

I was getting tired of mashed and baked potatoes, so I decided to create something new. This potluck-ready recipe is an easy and delicious twist on the usual potato dish. —Summer Feaker, Ankeny, Iowa

      My Foods class chose this recipe for January's Harvest of the Month (potatoes) recipe. We did 3 hours on low the first day then another 3 hours on low the second day, turning it up to high for the last 20 minutes then the additional 15 with the cheese. The potatoes were still hard!!! I don't think that splitting up the time would make a difference, but I'm not sure what else it could be. After putting them in the microwave for about a minute and a half, they were softer. We left them in the slow cooker longer, on high, and they seem better. Overall, the flavor was good, I liked the addition of the pepper.

      Such a delicious recipe! I opted to make this in the pressure cooker to save some time but it was very easy. Don't skip the green onions or bacon! Would be great for a picnic or potluck!
