Crock Pot Loaded Potato Soup is a new family favorite! Super easy dump and go recipe for the slow cooker that is perfect if everyone is headed in different directions or if we all get to eat at the same time!
I’m kind of a picky potato soup person! I grew up with a really creamy homemade potato soup that was made with love by my Mom and warmed you from the inside out! It was a family favorite but while delicious not a quick soup and it could be kept warm in the crock pot it wasn’t a dump and go recipe like this one!
This version came from a friend of mine who is an agronomist in Illinois! When I was searching for a recipe she said and I quote:
“I have a recipe I took to an agronomy meeting and the farmers practically licked the crock pot clean!”
There was no bigger endorsement needed than that, farmers tend to lean towards a good meat and potatoes meal, so a soup endorsement is golden! And once we tried it we knew why they had licked the crock pot clean!
I will say that I’m pretty sure the bacon in it helped a ton, bacon never hurt anything though! I’m not gonna lie I love me some bacon and sausage after working with hogs some days! Thankfully our freezers are full of it – we don’t want to run out!
