Potato Soup Recipe

Oxmoor House

Warm, comforting, and so delicious, this classic potato soup is the ultimate bowl of comfort food. Becuase more cheese is always better, this classic soup gets a double hit of cheese--both stirred into the soup and sprinkled over the top. Bacon bits lend a baked potato flavor and feel to this creamy, crowd-pleasing soup. Simply place the ingredients into a slow cooker and let it do all of the work for you.

8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup soup, 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 1/2 teaspoons cheese, 1 teaspoon bacon, and 1/2 teaspoon chives)

4 ounces shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese (about 1 cup), divided
