Tasty Thursday: Crockpot Potato Cheddar Soup

soupI love potato soup. I used to order it every time I went out to eat, once upon a time.

I was sick recently and the only thing I wanted was potato soup. So I went to the store and bought my favorite brand.

I ate it … and I wasn’t impressed. Since living with Pete who can cook amazingly, my taste buds have gotten used to incredible food. So soup from a can, it just didn’t make my mouth happy.

So I decided to make my own soup. I googled and found a crockpot potato soup on cdkitchen.com. I modified it just a little bit (mostly removing the bacon. You can add it if you want, but the soup was perfect to me without it).

What You’ll Need:

soup1

  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 32oz. chicken broth
  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 2.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 pint (1 cup) half & half
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons green onions (extra for garnish, optional)
  • sour cream (optional)

What You’ll Do:

soup2

Peel and chop your potatoes.

soup3

Chop one onion.

soup4

Chop five cloves of garlic.

soup6

Combine the garlic, chicken broth, potatoes, onion, butter, salt, and pepper. Cook in the slow cooker for 7 hours on low and 1 hour on high.

soup7

After 8 hours of cooking, mash the potatoes.

soup8

Add the half & half, cheese, and green onions.

soup9

Stir.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a pinch of green onions (both optional).

Honestly, this was the best soup I’ve ever made. Pete and I inhaled it. I’m a big bacon fan and I didn’t miss it in the soup (which is great because with half & half and cheese, this isn’t the healthiest soup). I will absolutely make this once a week all winter. I loved it that much.

It makes six really filling servings … and they were all gone very quickly.

    What is half and half

      Half & half is a half milk/half cream liquid that you can buy in the grocery store. You can pick it up by the milk. In the UK, it’s called “half cream.”
