Cooking Thursday

It's getting colder here and we have a snow storm predicted for this weekend.  That means it's soup time!  The recipe I'm sharing is for potato soup and it's a very easy version - you don't even have to peel potatoes!

Crock Pot  Loaded Baked Potato Soup 

1 30oz. bag of frozen diced hash browns
1 32 oz box of chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
1 pkg. cream cheese (8 oz, not fat free)
3 oz bacon bits
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste 

 
Directions:
Put the hash browns in the crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and half of the bacon bits. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
An hour before serving, cut the cream cheese into small cubes. Place the cubes in the crock pot. Mix a few times throughout the hour before serving.
Once the cream cheese is completely mixed in, it's ready to serve.
Top with cheddar cheese and some additional bacon bits.
Enjoy!

Sounds and looks delicious. We eat lots of soup when it gets cold so I am definitely adding this to our list. In fact, I think I will try this next week while the family is together for Thanks giving. I hope you have a blessed holiday with your family, Mari.....

Potato soup is probably my favorite, so thank you for this crock pot recipe. I need to get the things to make it this weekend...it is to be cold.

This does sound easy and potato soup is a favorite here. Stay warm and safe. We have had heavy rain all day and tornadoes in the southern part of the state.

There's something so comforting about potato soup! I just made a really favorite sausage, potato, and spinach soup today for Anthony and Lori.

This soup looks really good! I wish I could eat it. However, I am going to copy the recipe for a time when I have company or need to give soup to someone.
