Recipe - crockpot potato soup
My mother-in-law made this soup a week or so ago and it was so delicious, I had to take a stab at it! Plus the weather here as been miserably cold, and there's really nothing else my pregnant self wants except soup.
She found the original recipe here, but she adapted it a bit. Below is our adapted recipe, which is so hearty, tasty and EASY! Easy is the key 'round here lately....
32oz frozen cubed hash browns
32oz chicken broth
10oz cream of chicken soup
4 slices bacon
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup carrots, diced
4oz cream cheese, cubed
8oz velveeta, cubed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt & pepper, to taste
1) Place the frozen hash browns, broth, cream of chicken, bacon, onion and carrots in the crockpot.
2) Cook on low for 7-8 hours (or until the potatoes are tender).
3) An hour or so before serving, add in the cream cheese, velveeta and salt & pepper.
4) Once the cream cheese and velveeta are melted, you're ready to eat! Serve with shredded cheese and bacon on top! YUM!
I bought a take & bake boule from the grocery store, warmed it up and sliced it in half to make bread bowls. Seriously genius idea- it was so perfect!!
