How to Make It
Stir together first 10 ingredients in a 5-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 8 hours or until potato is tender. Add whipping cream and butter, stirring until butter melts. Ladle into bowls; sprinkle each serving with bacon.
Fix it Faster: Cook bacon in the microwave or substitute packaged fully cooked bacon, prepared according to package directions.
