Slow Cooking Thursday


I have such a good recipe for you this week. My friend Diane had it on her blog last week and I tried it on Friday. My sisters and I have a Christmas lunch every year and I thought it sounded perfect for our lunch. It was so easy and just delicious! All three of us gave it the thumbs up! Thanks, Diane for sharing!

Bacon Potato Chowder
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (I used a bad of the Hormel bacon pieces)
1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
4 cans (10 3/4 ounces each) Campbell's Condensed Cream of Potato Soup
4 soup cans milk
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 large russet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 3 cups)
1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)

1. Stir the bacon, onion, soup, milk, black pepper, potatoes, & 1/4 cup chives in a 6 quart slow cooker.
2. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 - 4 hours or until the potatoes are tender.
3. Add the cheese and stir until the cheese is melted. Serve with the remaining chives.

I've got to try that one of these days!

I made this again yesterday and I ended up having to be at church early so I got home later to eat after everyone else... I think there was enough left for 2 bowls plus a lunch for Mike today! I think the first time I made it I peeled the potatoes first, this time I was lazy and didn't peel them and it turned out just fine! I like that 'cause I hate to peel potatoes!!! :)

Glad you enjoy it! Now you have to try that Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup... that's amazing too (without the cilantro though)!

I am a fan of the soup, especially soup that can be made in the crockpot :-) Today is a day for cold soup though. It's drizzling rain which cooled things down to...oh, I don't know, maybe 90° or so. Maybe some gazpacho? :-) But I'll save this recipe for winter next July!

And thanks for your comment today. I especially appreciate them when I've written something that I don't know how people will take.

This sounds like a great recipe, Mari. I'm going to try it during the Christmas holidays when I've got a houseful! With a pan of cornbread, this will be perfect.

I just recently started eating chowder. I've always thought it tasted gross until a few months ago my son wanted me to try a corn chowder~yum!! This looks good, I might make it on the next cold day we have.

Cherdecor said...

This sounds really good! I wish I could eat it but interesting enough, the canned potato soup has modified starch. UGH!

Renee said...
