Crockpot Potato Soup

I love potato soup! Comfort food made easy! I got this from

3 slices bacon
1 cup onion, chopped
3 pounds baking potato, peeled and cut into 1/4″ slices
cooking spray
1/2 cup water
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups 1% low-fat milk
4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
4 teaspoons chives, chopped

1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 2 teaspoons drippings in pan; crumble bacon. Add onion to drippings in pan; sauté 3 minutes or until tender.

2. Place potato slices and onion in a 5-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Combine 1/2 cup water and next 3 ingredients (through pepper); stir into mixture in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.

3. Mash mixture with a potato masher; stir in milk and 3/4 cup cheese. Increase heat to HIGH. Cover and cook on HIGH for 20 minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated. Ladle soup into bowls. Top with sour cream and remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Sprinkle with bacon and chives.

Serves 8.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
