Simple Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Simple Slow Cooker Potato Soup created by FSCosta

Searching through some of the marvelous slow cooker Potato Soup / Chowder recipes here, I had three criteria: to used up the potatoes from our CSA share, use ingredients I had on hand, and appeal to my wife and me. Starting with stacylu's Crock-Pot Potato Chowder (http://www.food.com/recipe/crock-pot-potato-chowder-50144) as a base, then using a few of Battle in Seattle's Baked Potato Soup (http://www.food.com/recipe/baked-potato-soup-289260) seasoning sensibilities, I revised quantities and worked out a flavor profile to suit us. Here is my final product which I call Simple Slow Cooker Potato Soup.

ingredients

directions

  • Spray the slow cooker, at least 4 quarts in size, with non-stick spray.
  • Place all the ingredients, except the cream cheese, into the slow cooker.
  • Mix thoroughly before starting the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 8 - 9 hours.
  • Blend the final product. (I use a hand blender.).
  • Fold in the cream cheese just before serving.
  • Note: I did not peel the potatoes, liking the nutrition of the skin, not minding the darker flecks in the soup.
  • Note: I add no salt, since there was plenty of sodium from the condensed soup, broth, and turkey bacon, even with the low sodium varieties.
  • Note: I did not prepare the turkey bacon except to dice it, and I used UNCURED because that is how the turkey bacon we get at our supermarket comes.
  • Note: 12 potatoes makes a much thinner soup whereas 18 makes a stew with a mashed potato-like consistency.
