Yield Makes 8 servings
Comforting and easy to make in the slow cooker, this loaded potato soup gets even tastier with toppings such as cheese, crispy bacon, and green onions.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds new potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pint half-and-half
  • Toppings: shredded Cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, green onion slices

How to Make It

  1. Layer sliced potatoes in a lightly greased 6-quart slow cooker; top with chopped onion.

  2. Stir together chicken broth, salt, and pepper; pour over potatoes and onion. (Broth will not completely cover potatoes and onion.) Cover and cook on HIGH 3 to 5 hours or until potatoes are tender. Mash mixture with a potato masher; stir in half-and-half. Cover and cook on HIGH 20 more minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated. Ladle into bowls, and serve with desired toppings.
