Loaded Baked Potato Soup


I found this recipe on www.crockingirls.com. I tweaked it slightly and it was a hit with my whole family.


Loaded Baked Potato Soup




Ingredients:

★8 mediun potatoes, peeled and cubed (I usually leave the skin on potatoes.  Less work for me and more nutritious).

★1/2  onion, diced

★1 32 ounce (4 cups) container of chicken broth


★3 garlic cloves, minced

★1/4 cup butter

★Salt to taste Pepper to taste

★1 cup cream or 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2 cream.

★1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Garnish: chives, sour cream, bacon, and cheese


Directions:

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT  cream/ half and half and cheese in a large slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours (potatoes should be tender).

Mash potatoes until coarsely chopped and soup is slightly thickened. If you like a really think soup (like my husband does) add potato flakes a little at a time until desired thickness is reached).

Stir in cream and cheese. Garnish with toppings.

*** You can add chopped ham (at the beginning for a complete meal.
