Does anyone have a really good recipe for potato soup?

Recommended Posts

This one is SO YUMMY!

8c chopped,peeled potatoes

1 small onion- chopped

1/2lb bacon cooked and crumbled

1 8oz pack cream cheese

5c water

3 boullion cubes

1 can crm chicken soup


In crockpot dump potatoes, onion, soup mixed with water, bouillion cubes, and pepper to taste. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours or high 4-5. During the last hour add the cubed up cream cheese and stir. I add garlic powder to this recipe and we love it! When serving add shredded cheddar cheese and some bacon on top. Yum!

Restaurants always put cream in, that's why they taste so much better than the soups we make with milk at home.


Just add about half a cup to any cream soup ( Cream of potato, cream of broccoli, cream of tomato, etc) to get the effect.


Cream cheese is a lower fat imitator of this. Oddly enough, butter doesn't do it at all.

6 large russet potatoes, peeled & cut into 1/2" cubes

1 large onion, chopped

3 cans of roasted garlic chicken broth

1/4 cup butter

2 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 1/4 teaspoons black pepper

1 cup whipping cream or half-and-half

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

1 8oz container sour cream (optional)

4 bacon slices, cooked & crumbled

shredded cheddar cheese


1.) Combine first 6 ingredients in a 5-quart crock pot.

2.) Cover & cook on high 4 hours or on low 8 hours or until potato is tender.

3.) Mash mixture until potatoes are coarsely chopped and soup is slightly thickened; stir in cream, cheese, and chives. Top with sour cream, if desired, and sprinkle with bacon and cheese before serving.


My family loves this! Sometimes we serves this with grilled steak in place of a baked potato! :)
