Potato Soup
A simple to make and delicious potato soup
  • 5lbs red potatoes,sliced
  • 8 cups chicken broth (homemade or store-bought)
  • 6-8 cloves garlic,minced (add more or less based on your personal taste)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
  • 1 TB Season Salt ( I eyeball this..use more or less to your personal taste)
  • fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 16oz cream cheese (any type works), softened
  • additional toppings- cheese, bacon, parsley, etc.
  1. Add potatoes, onion, garlic, bacon,season salt, pepper and chicken stock to crockpot. If needed add water to make sure potatoes are covered.
  2. Cook on high 6-8 hours. Some crockpot's cook hotter than others. You want the potatoes to become fork tender.
  3. Once potatoes are done place ½-3/4 of potatoes in a bowl and mash with the cream cheese.
  4. After the potatoes are mashed return them to the crockpot and stir until well combined. Cook for an additional 30 minutes.
  5. Serve and garnish with your favorite toppings.
