I love love love soup!
I eat soup year round, it’s not just a winter thing.
This Cheesy Potato Soup is so delicious. It’s full of potatoes, cheese, and bacon.
I’ve tried a TON of potato soup recipes and they were never as good as I was hoping…some were too watery, some didn’t have enough flavor. So I came up with my own potato soup recipe and it’s the BEST!
Just dump everything in the slow cooker and in a couples hours, you will have a delicious cheesy potato soup!
HOW TO MAKE CHEESY POTATO SOUP IN THE SLOW COOKER
FROZEN DICED HASH BROWNS: OK…so you know I’m ALWAYS looking for ways to make recipes as EASY as possible. Well, when I first tried this recipe I used yukon potatoes, boiled them first and then put them in the slow cooker. I was like…wow, that was a lot of work and when I’m making a slow cooker recipe, I want to be able to dump all the ingredients in the slow cooker and turn it on. So I decided to try uses frozen diced hash browns instead and the soup turned out just as delicious without all the work!
TOPPINGS: I like to top this cheesy potato soup with bacon bits, cheddar cheese, and green onions.
FREEZE IT: We always have leftovers because it’s just my husband and I right now, so I just place the leftovers in a freezer bag and it stays good in the freezer up to 3 months.
