Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup


Baked Potato marries Slow Cooker marries Soup and boy, is it yummy! This savory soup is both comforting and delicious. And, I love that I can put everything in the crockpot and forget about it. It’s a crowd pleaser and just way too easy for the rave reviews!

Baked Potato Soup

  • 6 large russet potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 4 lbs)
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 (14 oz) cans chicken broth with roasted garlic
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 – 3 t. salt
  • 1 t. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3 T. parsley
  • 1 (8 oz) sour cream – I always add more!
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large slow cooker. Cover and cook on High for 4 hours or on Low for 8 hours, or until potatoes are tender.

Mash mixture until potatoes are coarsely chopped and soup is slightly thickened. Stir in milk, cheese, sour cream and parsley.

Sprinkle with bacon and Cheddar cheese before serving.

Makes 12 cups of soup.

Notes: I usually use a 5 lb bag of potatoes and instead of using special chicken broth with roasted garlic, I substitute about 4 garlic cloves, halved. Then I remove the garlic before mashing the potato mixture.

Also, I made the soup with almond milk today so Kelly could eat it. No one could tell any difference in the taste or texture. We don’t eat a lot of pork around here, so I’ve used turkey bacon, but today I didn’t have time to cook the bacon and it wasn’t even missed!

  1. Oh Myra – Potatoes are my favorite food EVER, and baked potato soup is right up there. In fact, on Christmas eve we're doing a bunch of soups and cheesy potato is one of them, but didn't think to do it in the crock pot. YUM! Thanks for linking up to Tasty Tuesday and if you could just include a link back, that would be super. 🙂 Can't wait to meet you at blissdom.

  2. Yay! So glad you posted the recipe! I will definitely be making this soon. It was amazing yesterday…so happy I could eat it! 🙂

  3. Oh my Myra! I want a big bowl of this soup, right now!! It sounds great on a cold snowy day, like today. Thanks for the recipe and linking to TMTT. Have a blessed Christmas with your family and friends.

  4. I made this soup this week with a few modifications (I added some celery that had been in my fridge since Thanksgiving and was on its last legs, and used water and a veggie bouillon cube instead of seasoned broth, because I had on hand.) It was so good that there were no leftovers!

    I have added it to my recipe box, and I will definitely make it often.

    Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe.
