Author Jo-Anna@APrettyLife

Ingredients

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

Toppings:

  • 4 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 pieces bacon cooked and crumbled
  • salt & fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. In a slow cooker, add the chopped potatoes, minced onion, 3 slices of bacon (uncooked), and the 1 L of chicken broth.
  3. Cook on the LOW setting for 6 to 8 hours, or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
  4. At about 30 minutes or so before the soup is done cooking in the slow cooker, remove the 3 bacon slices.
  5. 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.
  6. Stir in the cream, sour cream and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese until smooth.
  7. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes more.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve with your favourite toppings: green onion, bacon bits and more shredded cheese.
  10. Enjoy!

  • Reply Sab Edwards September 17, 2017 at 11:29 AM I should try to make pot soup again...I've tried multiple times but to me it takes.... I don't know... starchy lol... we often toss out tons of pot at work (I'm talking 300kgs on fridays of already cooked potatoes) and I've taken them home and made pot salad and tried soups. (lets not talk about the cream of celery soup I tried to make with leftovers from work)
    • Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife September 18, 2017 at 6:24 PM I was worried that it could be starchy too, but this recipe isn't at all! It's so good! I think the extra cheese stirred into it helps with that.
