I love crock pot meals so much because you can just dump in all the ingredients and walk away, essentially.

Here’s how to make it-

Slow Cooker Potato Soup Directions

1. In your crockpot, combine potatoes, onion, salt, pepper, and chicken broth.

2. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

3. About an hour before cooking is finished, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Then, take a potato masher and mash up the potatoes a bit inside the crockpot. Alternatively, you can mash them with a fork, or use an immersion blender if you have one.

4. Next, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, and place your bacon slices onto the parchment paper. Bake for 20-22 minutes in a 400 degree oven, until bacon is cooked and crispy. Set aside to cool.

5. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat.

6. Sprinkle flour into the pan and whisk into the melted butter. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

7. Slowly whisk in heavy cream. Cook over medium-low heat until the mixture begins to thicken. Pour the mixture into your slow cooker, and stir well.

8. Finish cooking according to your original cook time for the crockpot.

9. To serve, top with chopped bacon pieces, a dollop of sour cream, shredded cheese, green onions, and any if your other favorite toppings. Enjoy your cheesy potato soup!
