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

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.
