Today I’m adding another good one to the slow cooker list- Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup.

Baked Potato Soup
There are several recipes for slow cooker baked potato soup but I combined a few and loved the result.

Creamy, hearty and delicious.  Of course this recipe wouldn’t be nearly as good without the garnishes- bacon, sour cream, and cheese.

I made this soup on Halloween to go with my favorite cornbread ever.  I put the ingredients in and just left it while I went to the kids Halloween parade.  Anyone else love slow cooker recipes? Baked Potato Soup and Cornbread

    I as well as my friends have already been following the excellent hints located on the blog and then all of a sudden developed a horrible suspicion I never expressed respect to the website owner for those secrets. These young men had been totally passionate to read through them and have now honestly been taking pleasure in those things. Thanks for being quite thoughtful as well as for figuring out these kinds of perfect information most people are really eager to discover. My sincere apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.

    I am hoping to feel like making this tomorrow. Our family has been stricken by the flu and this sounds so wonderful. Thank you.

    This looks fantastic! Can’t wait to eat it next week. Perfect timing, I had to buy 20lbs of potatoes for Thanksgiving last week. I only used 10lbs…so I need potato recipes and bloggy land comes through again! I love that this is all whole foods and no canned stuff!
    Thanks again!

    This sounds so good! I make potato soup sometimes, but this slow cooker idea sounds very appealing. I think I have a taste for it right now! Thanks!

    Sounds SUPER yummy and I think I have everything on hand! YEAH! 2 questions – the onion – are you supposed to dice or chop it up at all? After adding 1/2 and 1/2 it says to add cheese. What kind of cheese and how much :) Thanks

      Hi Wendy- ooops! Important details. Thanks for asking. Yes, chop the onions and 1 c. of shredded cheddar plus whatever you want to garnish. Hope that helps!
