Try It Tuesday Cooking Badge 2

Last week when it was super cold (and not the glorious spring weather we’re experiencing today), I was CRAVING soup. I wanted some comfort food, so I consulted–what else–Pinterest! I found an awesome crockpot potato soup recipe from The Country Cook!

Loaded Potato Soup (thecountrycook)



Here’s what you need:


4 pounds potatoes (I used russet), peeled and cubed

1/2 cup onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 stalks celery, finely diced (I actually didn’t use this because I don’t like celery)

2 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 cups half and half

Garnish with cheese, bacon bits, and/or chives


First, spray your crockpot with cooking spray and toss in your peeled and cubed potatoes and then sprinkle chopped onion, salt, pepper, and garlic on top.




Next pour in the chicken broth, cover, and let it cook for 6-8 hours on low.





Then, mash the potatoes and add in the half and half.



Cover and cook on high for about 20 more minutes.



Once the soup is thoroughly heated, ladle into a bowl, garnish and enjoy!



I liked the soup…I just wish it was a tad bit creamier. I think next time I’ll add a little cream cheese (not super healthy, I know) to add a little somthin’ somethin’!
