flavor packed potato soup
Soup recipes are my favorite but Slow Cooker Soup recipes are even better!! Today, I want to share with you this recipe for Crockpot Potato Soup. We’ve made it twice in the last month which goes to show it was DELICIOUS!!
I found the recipe via AllRecipes and it’s one I know you’ll love… especially if you love potatoes, bacon and cheese (how could you not love those ingredients, right?!). We switched it up just a bit, and we really like how it turned out.
The ingredients are so simple, but the soup isn’t plain at all! In fact, it’s BURSTING with flavor! It’s the perfect comfort food for cold days like today. 😉
throw it in the slow cooker!
This recipe is super easy to make! You throw most of the ingredients into your crockpot, let it do its thing for 4 hours, toss in the remaining ingredients, and ta-da!
TIP: To make this soup even more creamy, use a fork or a potato masher to mash up some of the potatoes.
What can I substitute for half n half? If you don’t have half n half you can easily make your own. Try one of the following combinations
- 4 teaspoons melted butter add whole milk to equal 1 cup
- One cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup “single cream” to ½ cup whole milk
Can I freeze baked potato soup? Yes you can, but due to the potatoes and the cream it may unthaw with a grainier texture than the original soup. To help remedy this, undercook the potatoes before freezing. When you reheat, do so very gradually stirring frequently and add a bit of fresh cream to help revive it.
To freeze, allow the soup to cool and store in an airtight freezer safe container for up to 6 months.
How to reheat baked potato soup? Store leftover soup in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat very gradually over low heat stirring frequently. A double broiler works great as does a crockpot or a large non stick skillet.
I definitely get good use out of my crockpot this time of year! I have a feeling this recipe is one we’ll make in the crockpot several times. Give it a try and let me know how you like it!
