Loaded Potato Soup in Crockpot
When I was cleaning out all areas of my kitchen, I had a few things I needed to use up before they went bad. Here is how I can up with Loaded Potato Soup in Crockpot. It was really easy to make and I was able to clean out a lot of “little bits of things” I needed to use.
8-10 potatoes, peeled, washed, cubed
8 tsp chicken bouillon powder
32 oz. water
In crockpot, place all of those items.
Take 1 onion and chop it up and put it in a saute pan with some bacon grease and a pat of butter. Cook until it is translucent. Once that is done, mix in the crockpot. Stir well. It would have been good to add in some fresh mushrooms to saute down with the onion and garlic. I am also not opposed to throwing broccoli in there, but be sure and season it.
Cook on high for 2-3 hours and then turn it to low, if you have the time. Once the potatoes are fork tender is when I ladle some out into a big bowl. In that bowl of hot potatoes, I had 1 c. sour cream and 1 can cream of potato soup. I used my immersion blender to blend that up. Pour this mixture back into the soup. Next, add 2 good handfuls of cheddar and 1 c. heavy cream. You will need to put some extra chicken bouillon flavoring in it and a tad bit more seasoning.
Stir, cover, and let sit till all working together for the glory of God.
Get some bacon in the oven and start cooking on that. While that is cooking, chop up some green onions, and get out the cheddar for garnish (and more LOL). Get the cooked bacon out, drain and then crumble it up for a topping. You can top your soup with green onion, more cheddar, bacon, biscuits, or more sour cream. Also, you can serve with crackers.
