Crockpot Baked Potato soup


As some of you probably already know, I am a soup fanatic. One of my all-time favorites is Loaded Baked Potato Soup. I enjoy it so much that whenever my family and I go out to eat to one of our preferred restaurants Panera Bread, I order it regularly lol sometimes with a soup bread bowl. It’s so creamy and delicious!! However, I’m going to have to acknowledge that it doesn’t beat homemade.

This Crockpot Baked Potato Soup is savory, filling and relatively easy to prepare. My family and I enjoyed it!

Crockpot Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Ingredients

Six large potatoes

1 large onion

1 qt. of chicken broth

three garlic cloves

1/4 C. butter

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper or more to taste

1 C. Half-and-Half or 2% milk

1 C. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Optional:

Bacon
Chives
Sour cream
Cheese
Crackers

Directions

1. Peel and cut all six potatoes into cubes. Next, dice onion, and garlic using a food processor and or a knife. Next, combine in your crockpot the potatoes, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, chicken broth, and butter. Stir well. Save the milk and cheese for later.

2. Cook on HIGH for four hours or on LOW for eight hours. (potatoes should be soft) About an hour before serving mash the potatoes until coarsely chopped and soup is slightly thickened. Next, stir in milk and cheese. Garnish with toppings.

Notes: I understand some of you might be dreading of doing the slow, and time-consuming process of peeling and cutting the potatoes into cubes. Either because your schedule might be jammed packed with stuff. If so, peel and cut the taters into cubes the night before and put them in an airtight container and place them in the fridge. And or for those of you who find it more challenging, please be patient with yourself. You can do it! 🙂
