I found a great recipe over at Michelle's blog, 5 Dinners 1 Hour, last week. You can subscribe to her 'Make 5' monthly meal plan in her sidebar...or be like me and just follow her blog for great recipe ideas a few times a month.
This recipe for Slow Cooked Baked Potato Soup really hit the spot...for our schedules and our stomachs! Since I did all of the preparations the morning of and she has hers stored in the refrigerator ready to go, I altered the recipe a little to fit my circumstances.
Slow Cooked Baked Potato Soup
In your slow cooker, combine:
32 ounce bag frozen, cubed hash brown potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
32 ounces chicken broth
1 cup water
Meanwhile, in a small bowl with a lid, combine:
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons flour
Store milk & flour mixture in refrigerator, until ready to use.
Cook potatoes on low for 6-8 hours.
30 minutes before serving, turn slow cooker to high and add milk/flour mixture.
Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, bacon bits and green onions.
I hope you enjoy the soup as much as we did! Oh, and if you have any great Crock Pot recipe ideas for me...PLEASE SHARE! My menfolk are getting tired of soups!
