This Crock Pot Potato Bacon Soup from Gooseberry Patch’s Super Fast Slow Cooking is perfect to warm you up on a freezing winter day or to share at a holiday potluck!
The for years I have made potato soup with a pretty basic recipe of milk, butter, potatoes, salt and pepper. It wasn’t the most inventive recipe, but it worked. Then I ran across this Crock Pot Potato Bacon Soup recipe. Oh. My. Yum.
This is a pretty simple recipe, but don’t let that fool you! It is delicious!
The night I made this, my friend Josie stopped by at dinner time. Potato soup just happens to be her favorite, so I was hoping this Crock Pot Potato Bacon Soup would not disappoint. Well, Michael has declared that this will be our potato soup recipe from now on, and Miss Josie wanted to know what was in it. Yay!
Crock Pot Potato Bacon Soup
Peel and chop your potatoes.
Cook your bacon until it is crisp and crumble it.
Chop up your onion.
Combine the potatoes, bacon, onion, sour cream, chicken broth and cream of chicken soup in your crock pot.
Mix it all together.
You will want to use a large crock pot for this one. All those ingredients take up a lot of space, and you want to have room to stir it well.
If you need or want a lower sodium version, use 32 oz of chicken broth and 11 1/2 oz of water. And there is always low-sodium broth if you want to take it down even lower.
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 5-6 hours. If you have larger pieces of potato, you will need to cook it for the longer times. Test the potatoes with a fork. When they are cut in half easily, the soup is ready!
We served this up with a sprinkling of cheese and some crackers. Enjoy!
