Slow Cooker Potato Soup

I can hardly believe that Autumn weather is here, the leaves are turning around our neck of the woods and it’s put me in the mood for some delicious savory soups…

Slow Cooker Potato Soup is perfect for a fall day or pretty much any day for that matter!

    Soups are one of my favorite fall/winter/spring things to make and eat. I’ve pinned it to my soup board and can hardly wait to make it. Thanks for your recipe ~ I have a few potato soup recipes but not one for the slow cooker.

    Have you ever done this on the stove instead of crockpot? I feel like things get scorched a lot, so I’ve started cooking stuff in the crockpot for less time and it typically turns out well. I just don’t know if the potatoes would be done. I’m really excited I try it!

      HI Stephanie…. yes, it would work on the stove just fine. Just add the first 5 ingredients and simmer until the potatoes are soft, approx 10 minutes. Then add the rest of ingredients and serve :) You’ll love it. xoxo~ Ruthie

    In your slow cooker potato soup recipe, how much is “a pkg of real bacon bits”?
    Thank you. I can’t wait to give this a try.

      It’s 3 oz and I used the Oscar Meyer brand… I will update the recipe so thank you for the comment, I always like to make my recipes more user-friendly :) You will adore this soup- it’s mouth-watering! xoxo~ Ruthie

    So it will cook in a crock pot for 4 hours on high and be done? I don’t have to cook for 8 hours????

    • November 4, 2013

      Hi Chevy… you can cook it either way. On high heat for 4 hours or on low heat for 8 hours, depending on how long you have to let it cook. I hope that clarifies the instructions. Thanks for the comment and have a great day! xoxo~ Ruthie

    I made this soup tonight. It was amazing!! I felt like the sour cream didn’t fully break down and absorb into the broth, though. Would whipping the half and half, sour cream and cheese together make it all blend together better?

    Still very delicious, I recommend trying it!
