I am loving these Slow Cooker Soup recipes on Fridays! It’s been fun to create new recipes and adapt old recipes to use in the slow cooker.
This time, I adapted one of our favorite soups. It’s actually from one of the Frugal Gourmet cookbooks. The original recipe calls for cooking the onion in butter, adding flour and then adding the broth, potatoes and other ingredients later.
For this Slow Cooker Soup Recipe series, I really want to keep from doing any cooking prep work. My goal is to make the soups as easy as possible.

My alternative is using a can of cream of chicken soup. I first thought to use the cream style corn that the original recipe calls for and not bother with other thickening.
