Slow Cooked Baked Potato Soup

This is a great soup. We really like it. It is one of my favorite Crockpot soups. It is adapted from a Southern Living Recipe. The bacon in this recipe is optional but it is better with bacon. But bacon makes everything taste better. I hope you enjoy. For more great recipes see Slow Cooking Thursday.

  9. I have a friend that made baked potato soup with cream lots of cream and mashed potatoes and onion and cheddar on top oh and bacon. it was sooo yummy!

  10. I’m making this but I did not have Idaho potatoes I only had red skin potatoes, and I only had 3 cups of chicken broth so I added that new Swanson broth that came out the Louisiana Cajun broth I hope it turns out well. I took a whiff of the Cajun broth whew talk about smelling peppers lol. I also added some seasoning called Dragons Breath rub I got from a local shop its really spicy, hopefully I won’t regret it later.

  11. Well it tuned out good I think I put too much sour cream in it, but other than that it turned out great and only had a slight kick since my fiance` loves spicy food. I made garlic sourdough bread with it and he ate a couple bowls thank you Lynn for the recipe!!!!!
