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:


  • 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:


Peel and chop your potatoes.


Chop one onion.


Chop five cloves of garlic.


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.


After 8 hours of cooking, mash the potatoes.


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



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

    • drugstore diva lisa October 29, 2013 2:21 am Reply

      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.”
