Crock Pot Baked Potato Soup
I stumbled across this recipe and I am so, so glad I found it. It is just what the doctor ordered on this cold, December day. It tastes like restaurant style soup but without any of the work. I tweaked it to my liking so feel free to do the same. Here's what I did:
1 package frozen hash browns
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 box + 1 can chicken broth
1/4 onion, chopped
Course ground black pepper to your taste
12 oz or 1 1/2 packages cream cheese (do not use FF, it won't melt)
1/2 package real bacon bits
Combine all ingredients except cream cheese and bacon in crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or more if needed. An hour before serving, add cream cheese and bacon to crock pot. Stirring occasionally. Serve topped with scallions and cheese.
It can be made on stove-top also and takes about an hour. If you like really thick soup then go ahead and add the other 1/2 of the cream cheese.
