    What is your recipe for the baked potato rounds?

    I love baking sliced potatoes and adding cheese and crumbled bacon on the top after the potatoes are done. You can serve them with sour cream or ranch dressing.

    I haven't tried this recipe yet but it sounded too good not to. I have most of this on hand pretty much all the time. I am not sure who wrote it as it was on the internet but there was no sign up or anything for the site that I found it on. I will let you all know how it turns out.

    Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings

    4 Tablespoons butter
    1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 onion- chopped
    3 lbs of your favorite chicken parts-cut up
    2 cups of chicken broth
    2 stalks celery
    1 Tablespoon minced parsley
    2 carrots-peeled,sliced
    1 tsp black pepper
    Salt to taste
    1/2 tsp ground allspice

    1 cup of dry white wine (optional)
    1 can refrigerated biscuits or your own homemade dough
    1/2 cup of heavy cream
    2 Tablespoons flour

    In a large skillet, brown onion in butter and oil just until tender, then brown chicken parts and place all in a crockpot. Add remaining ingredients except heavy cream, flour, and biscuits. Cook on high 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or on low 5-7 hours. When chicken is done, remove pieces to plate and let cool, then debone. While chicken is cooling, mix flour and cream together, then stir into crockpot. Open biscuits and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Drop into crockpot and turn on high. These will need to cook about 30 minutes, until they are firm. Return chicken meat to crockpot after deboning and serve.

    I cut potatoes in slices skin and all- not to thin but not to thick. I spray a baking sheet (like a jellyroll pan) with cooking spray. Place the potatoes on the sheet, spray potatoes with cooking spray, then sprinkle whatever spices your family likes (I use salt, pepper, and garlic). Bake until they are fork soft in the inside and browned on the outside- I do turn them once during cooking. I cook them on 375 and I don't really pay attention to the time-it is around 45minutes or so I belive. If you want a more fattening version you can use melted butter in place of the cooking spray. Everyone in my family eats them differently but no one has ever missed the frozen french fries or tater tots.

    *Ok I had to edit my post this morning because I have realized that I should not be allowed to post things when it's way past my bedtime-Oh the typos! lol
