We all need soup for the winter! It's the best comfort food and it is what you are going to want on a chilly day. The easiest way to make your soup is obviously to use a slow cooker!
Slow cooker Loaded Potato Soup is going to feel like a baked potato but creamier and easier! You are really going to love it so check out this super easy recipe to get started on your new favorite soup!
- 3 - 3 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and diced to 1/2 inch pieces (8-9 cups)
- 1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
- 3 (14.5 ounces) cans low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 9 ounces bacon, cooked and diced or crumbled
- 4 green onions, diced
Add the potatoes, onion, chicken broth and evaporated milk to the slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours. Check that your potatoes are soft.
Remove 2 cups of liquid from the crock pot and set aside.
Take a saucepan and melt butter on a medium heat.
Add in the flour and mix with the butter, stirring for 2 minutes.
Pour in the 2 cups of liquid you separated and whisk it in.
Add the butter mixture back into the slow cooker and stir until blended.
If you want your potatoes to be more mashed, you can mash them into smaller pieces using a hand masher or emulsion blender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and cook for another 10 minutes.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream, cheddar, bacon, and green onions sprinkled on top.
