Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup
- 6 medium sized potatoes I like to use Yukon Gold
- 1 onion minced
- 3 slices of bacon
- 1 L chicken broth
- 1/2 cup cream
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 green onions sliced
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 6 pieces bacon cooked and crumbled
- salt & fresh ground pepper
Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1/2 inch cubes.
In a slow cooker, add the chopped potatoes, minced onion, 3 slices of bacon (uncooked), and the 1 L of chicken broth.
Cook on the LOW setting for 6 to 8 hours, or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
At about 30 minutes or so before the soup is done cooking in the slow cooker, remove the 3 bacon slices.
Then using either a potato masher or immersion blender, blend about 3/4 of the soup if you would like it to have some potato chunks. If you would prefer a smooth soup, blend the entire soup.
Stir in the cream, sour cream and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese until smooth.
Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes more.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with your favourite toppings: green onion, bacon bits and more shredded cheese.
