Crock Pot Loaded Baked Potato Soup
It’s another Gooseberry Patch recipe review today. If you’ve missed any of the other recipes that I have reviewed so far, be sure to check those out when you have time: Hashbrown~Pork Chop Casserole and Cheeseburger Soup. This next recipe has been a favorite of ours for years. I have always enjoyed making (and eating) this soup.
Creamy and delicious
4 lbs. potatoes (red skin, russet or yukon gold), peeled and cubed
1/2 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups half and half
Garnish: shredded cheddar cheese, cooked and crumbled bacon, sliced green onionsDirections:
- 4 lbs potatoes peeled and cubed
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 stalks celery finely diced
- 2 14 oz cans chicken broth
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups half and half
- Garnish: shredded cheddar cheese, cooked and crumbled bacon, sliced green onions
- Layer cubed potatoes in a lightly greased 5-quart slow cooker.
- Top with chopped onion, garlic and celery (if using).
- Add chicken broth, salt and pepper.
- Broth will not completely cover potatoes.
- Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
- Mash mixture with a potato masher. (Don't mash completely, leave some potato chunks.)
- Stir in half and half.
- Cover and cook on high setting 20 more minutes, or until mixture is thoroughly heated.
- Ladle into bowls and garnish with favorite toppings.
If you really want to cut down on some of the chopping, try using a bag of Southern Style frozen hash browns (by Ore-Ida, they are cubed shaped potatoes). Or the Ore-Ida Steam 'N Mash potatoes.
