Affiliate links are used in this post.

My family and friends are posting pictures on Facebook of snow and and cold temps, and while it's just beginning to feel like Fall here (ha ha you all!), I know a lot of you are in the same boat (or maybe I should say the same igloo?!).

Well this is the season where our slow cookers get worked overtime, and we've got a delicious and easy recipe from eMeals to share with you:

Loaded Potato Soup

6 slices bacon
32 oz package frozen diced hash browns
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic chopped
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives or basil

1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes or until crisp.  Drain on paper towels; crumble and set aside.

2. Combine hashbrowns, broth, onion, seasoned salt, pepper and garlic in a lightly greased 5 to 7 quart slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low 9 hours.

3. Stir in half-and-half; mash with a potato masher to desired consistency.

4. Serve with bacon, Cheddar cheese, sour cream and chives.

Serves 8

I left out the onions, garlic and chives/basil just for personal preference.

This would make an amazing dinner and the perfect cheat meal for me. Now that the weather is getting colder, I'm ready to bring on the soups!

I hardly ever use my slow cooker, but this recipe looks delicious!

That looks wonderful! We're creatures of habit, so we pretty much just do roast in the crock pot!

My favorite soup is potato soup! Just love it. And not sure why, but I've never made it in a slow cooker before.

This was one of the most popular things on the menu at a place I worked in the early 90's... and it still looks awesome :)

I make a lot of chicken noodle soup using ramen noodles. Your soup is on the weekends menu.

My family loves soup. My dad gets the loaded baked potato soup at Bob Evan's EVERY TIME he's there. I'll have to tuck this recipe away for the next time they come over for supper.
