Baked Potato Soup..

"Unusual recipe here as the ingredients go in hot, and the slow cooker keeps this warm. This is great for singles, or a small family as this will already be cooked on the stove, and kept warm in the slow cooker."

  1. Yum! The weather has cooled off a bit the last few days and this fit the mood and the weather. Nice comfort food that was easy to put together and tasted great. Thanks Doug for a nice keeper. Made for your win in the Football Pool. Congrats again.
  2. YUM! The only change was to stir in the green onions about five minutes before serving<br/>to maintain their bright green color. Next time I'll roast onions with the potatoes. Reviewed for Best of 2012.
  3. My family loved this recipe. I followed all the ingredients and recipe. Made for PRMR.
