Baked Potato Soup in the Crockpot #SoupSaturdaySwappers

Creamy and flavorful potato soup simmers all day long in the crockpot.  You come home to a delicious smelling house and dinner is on the table before you know it.  Topped with all the things that make a perfect baked potato.....cheese, sour cream and bacon, this soup is a winner.



Join the Soup Saturday Swappers as we explore Potato Soups..........


Our host for this month's Soup Saturday Swappers is Sid of Sid's Sea Palm Cooking.  She invited us all to make a soup that contained potatoes of some sort.  Baked, mashed, redskins, russets, sweet potatoes.....it didn't matter as long as they played a starring role.

Soup Saturday Swappers is a fun group that I started a couple of years ago.  We post recipes based on a theme chosen by one of the members on the third Saturday of each month.  We would love to have you join us.  Just leave a comment below or email me with your blog name so I can send you an invitation.


This soup is easy, peasy.  The hardest thing about it is peeling the potatoes and chopping the onion.  You put those in the crock of a slow cooker along with some chopped celery, minced garlic, and chicken broth.  Season with salt and pepper and walk away for a few hours.

When ready to serve, use a potato masher or immersion blender to break up some of the potatoes.  Stir in some cream and you are ready to serve.


Pass around all the toppings that you love to put on your baked potatoes.  Crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, sour cream, chives, green onions.....the options are limited only to your imagination.  I chose bacon, sour cream and cheese to top my soup.

I am also linking up with my friend, Deb at Kahakai Kitchen this month for her Souper Sunday event.  Souper Sunday is a weekly event where bloggers share Soups/Salads/Sammies with each other and our readers.  Check it out.

Before I share this easy, peasy recipe, let's see what kinds of potato soup the others are sharing today.
