Anyone who knows me know that potatoes are my all-time favorite food. Hands down! Mashed, scallops, au gratin, french fries, hash browns, baked, and everything in between, including cream of potato soup. I've made my way through a handful of potato soup recipes and haven't really been wowed enough to repeat any of them. But this one's a keeper + it utilizes one of my favorite kitchen tools - the handy-dandy crockpot, which makes it even more appealing in my book.
Add a bit of crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar, and green onions, on top, and holy potato, was it good! (Note: if you plan to make leftovers, store bacon/toppings in a separate container than soup, otherwise bacon gets gross & soggy - no megusta!).
