Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

 

Potato soup is a wintertime staple around here.  We’ve actually already got four different recipes for it on the blog.

Potato soup - the humble version that I make most often

Light & Healthier Potato Soup – from contributing writer, Kim

Baked Potato Soup – so good, and you end up with potato skins for appetizers too

Creamy Potato Soup – souped up version of the first recipe listed

So why another version?  Well, first because it’s just so good no matter how you make it.  And second, because I wanted one I could fix in the slow cooker.

This one worked out great.  It does take about 10-15 minutes to prep it.  I find that large baking potatoes are quicker to peel than a bunch of tiny potatoes.

For our Friday Slow Cooker Soups series, I’ve been making and sharing soups that don’t require any pre-cooking meat or veggies before putting them in the crock.  That holds true for this soup too.  But I did stretch it a bit with the toppings.  I topped with bacon (you could use bacon bits instead) and that, of course, had to be cooked separately.

I also topped it with chives and cheddar.  But a bowl of this would be great on its own too.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:

Such simple ingredients.  I love how they come together to make such a satisfying comfort food.

  1. To save time and to take advantage of all the good things in the peel, why not just scrub and dice the potatoes? Just skip the peeling part.

  2. Yum! Potato soup is one of the soups I like most! Never thought to make it in the slow cooker! I always peel for potato soup too!

  3. Yummy!

  4. I just use a bag of Southern Style hash brown potatoes…put them in frozen.
