This is a delicious way to warm up in cold weather. My children love this and request it often. This recipe is a combination of a few baked potato recipes I found in one of my favorite crockpot cook books, 'Fix It and Forget It.' Enjoy!

I made this for a class party before christmas, and they LOVED it. I did boil the potatoes first, only because we needed it to be done sooner than 8 hours. It simmered in the crockpot and made the whole room smell great!! Thanks for posting such a simple but tasty recipe!

fabulous soup for the soup hater! I'm not a fan of soup at all, but absolutely love this with a side of fresh sourdough bread. I did end up having to cook this on high in the crockpot for half of the time (the first time I made it the potatoes weren't quite done), and I doubled the cheese. this one's a winner for the whole family - nothing weird in it, but a nice hearty meal.

Michigan winters can only be enjoyed if accompanied by delicious bowls of soup. This soup helped make the recent snowstorm bearable. I served the soup in fresh breadbowls and sprinkled a few chives and bacon bits on top. This recipe is going in the family favorites cookbook! Made and enjoyed on a cold wintery day in Michigan.
