If you haven't ever used bacon in a recipe like this, you will want to note that it will not look the same as when you fry bacon. It won't crisp up and get really dark in color like it does when you fry it. It will be soft and pink, but after cooking in a crock pot for as long as it takes for your potatoes to soften up, it is indeed cooked. It just looks different than when fried.
