BAKED POTATO SOUP
Yes! This is a recipe from my son Ben. He received a crockpot
at Christmas and made this soup. He said it was delicious, a
thumbs up recipe. I'm posting his contribution to my cooking
blog. I've not tried it yet, I'll let you be the judge.
1 bag (32 oz.) frozen hash browns*
1 box (32 oz.) chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pkg. (8oz.) cream cheese, softened. Cut in large cubes
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese,* + a little more (garnish)
3/4 cup bacon crumbled,* + a little more (garnish)
1/2 tsp. salt*
1/2 tsp. pepper*
In a slow cooker add the hash browns, chicken broth, soup,
cream cheese, bacon, cheddar cheese, and salt / pepper.
Stir gently to combine.
Cover with lid.
Cook on high setting for 3 hours. Stir occasionally.
Potatoes should be tender.
Do a little taste test, add more salt and pepper if needed.
Garnish with the extra cheese and bacon.
* hash browns can be shredded or diced
* can use the packaged variety or grate yourself
* bacon can be prepared ahead, or buy precooked
* add additional salt and pepper to taste
