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

potato soup6 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.

  5. We live on potato soup in the winter time! Yours looks SO yummy.

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

  7. 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 🙂

  8. What a great fall recipe. Looks perfect for those cold winter nights.

  9. That looks so good! I'd love to try it soon when it's cold out. Thanks!
