Crockpot Potato Soup

A new challenge, friends!

The Surprise Recipe Swap hosted by Jutta at HungryLittleGirl. I was assigned to Cynthia's blog, Feeding Big and More and I chose her Crockpot Potato Soup.


























I like easy with little to no work. All you gotta do is dice up some potatoes and onions and let the crockpot do the rest. Oh, and cook bacon if you want to top your soup with bacon. But who wouldn't? Ok ok I guess you vegetarians can skip the bacon.

Thank goodness for crockpots.

 























I ended up using my new immersion blender to blend together the cream cheese with the soup, but it really makes the soup smooth so if you want some little chunks of potatoes in it, I'd recommend just adding the cream cheese to the crockpot at the end and stirring in, not in a blender or immersion blender as the soup will not be chunky.



















Crockpot Potato Soup
from Feeding Big and More

*Yields: about 4 large bowls
  • 3 lbs potatoes, diced into 1-inch squares
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 38 oz chicken stock
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • bacon, green onions, sour cream, cheese for topping (optional)
Add potatoes, garlic, onion, and chicken stock to the crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours, or on low for 8 hours.

Remove soup from slow cooker. Puree in blender or food processor with cream cheese (I used an immersion blender). Pour back into crock pot to keep warm.

Serve with bacon, cheese, chives, sour cream, or whatever you'd like for toppings!
