Crock Pot Potato Soup

I am loving the hint of fall in the air!  Time to dust off the crock pot and make some of those nice warm end-of-the-day meals.  Now in all fairness, I do use my crock pot year round – but this is soup weather, so bring it on!!

This recipe is for a quick and easy potato soup in the crock pot.

Ingredients:

3-5 lbs. potatoes (use whatever kind you like… I used gold potatoes in these pictures)
1 box (4 cups) chicken stock
onion powder
garlic powder
2 cups half and half (or 1 cup half and half, one cup sour cream)
3 oz. bag of bacon pieces
grated cheese

Directions:

Peel and chop your potatoes and put them into the crock pot.

Cover with the chicken stock.  Also mix in some onion powder and garlic powder (I just do a couple shakes of each).

Let cook on LOW for 6 hours.  After 6 hours or so, potatoes should be done.  Mash them with a potato masher.

They’ll look like this:

Next pour in the half & half.  If you have sour cream, you can do one cup half and half, one half sour cream, and it’s really yummy this way.  I was out of sour cream, though, and didn’t want to make a run to the store.

Stir, then add in the bacon:

And about a cup of grated cheese:

Stir all together and serve.  YUM.
