mmmm yummers!  Is that a word?  Is now!!  Don’t you like how I invent these words?! heehe :)

Anywho!  I made this just last night & was a little skeptical because I altered some things from the original recipe – but let me tell you – IT WAS AWESOME!!

And, it could also be the reason why I couldn’t WAIT to share it it with you today!!!

I made the full batch (I had mama brain & apparently wasn’t using my rocket scientist brain cells – wait, do I even have those kind of brain cells?!)  Hmmm SAHM & rocket scientist – could be!! :)  Well, it happened to be only the hubs & myself for this meal, V was at Grandma’s, and T, well, I don’t think I am adventurous brave enough for little T with soup – it may not be pretty.





My {FAVORITE} thing about this recipe – it’s in the ol’ slower cooker {aka} crock pot {aka} every mamas appliance necessity and sanity saver!

Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup

♥ Prep time:  20-30 mins

♥ Cook time:  5-10 hours

♥ Serves: 10-12

A creamy concoction simplified in the slow cooker!

Ingredients

  • 5 lbs russet potatoes, peeled & diced into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 5 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Spike Seasoned Salt
  • 4 – 14.5 oz. cans of chicken broth (58 oz. total)
  • 6 oz. water
  • 2 – 8 oz. packages of reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • optional: chopped cooked bacon, shredded sharp cheddar, & diced green onions for garnish

Directions

  • Add diced & peeled potatoes to the crockpot; along with the onion, garlic, seasoning, and broth.  Stir to combine.
  • Cook in the crockpot on high for 5-6 hours, or on low for 9-10 hours.
  • After cooking time is completed, add both blocks of the softened cream cheese and blend together very well using an immersion blender. (ANOTHER METHOD: you can also blend it in batches in a blender if you do not have an immersion blender).
  • After combined, stir well with spoon.
  • Serve with above listed garnishes, or alone.

Notes/Tips

♥ I used the Spike Seasoning Salt because it is what I had on hand.  You can use any seasoning salt your heart desires :)  Alternatively they offer a gluten free Spike Seasoning.  That, combined with a Gluten free broth, will make this soup Gluten free.  Here’s a great link for Gluten Free Chicken Broth recommendations.

♥ If you don’t own an immersion blender, I HIGHLY recommend getting one if you do make a lot of soups.  Until recently we had an old one but just upgraded & got the one linked above & it is the BEST.THING.EVER.!  No more blender messes!  As a mama – I don’t need any extra messes!  I’m sure you understand that it is so worth it if there is one less thing to clean up ;)  {insert happy mama with all her sanity intact}

  1. Do you happen to know how many calories per serving?

    My husband made this last night for us and it was amazing. I had two bowls! We didn’t have the time for the crock pot, so we just boiled the potato cubes and then finished the recipe.

    • Gosh Nicole – I wish I did! I also wish I was a calorie counter – sadly I’m not, but should be. Yay! I’m glad you liked it so much :)) Thanks for checking it out & trying it!!! xx ♥ m
