Loaded Baked Potato Soup
INGREDIENTS:

6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed (I used Russet)
1/2 large onion, diced
1 quart chicken broth
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup unsalted butter
8 strips of bacon, cooked crisp, drained and crumbled
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

1 cup cream or 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2 cream( or canned evaporated milk)
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Garnish: chives, green onions, sour cream, bacon, cheese. Top it just like a baked potato!

PREPARATION:

Cook up the bacon and crumble. *Cooking some bacon in the soup really gave it amazing flavor*

Combine first 8 ingredients in a large slow cooker and cook on high for
3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours (make sure potatoes are tender). Mash potatoes until coarsely chopped and soup is slightly thickened.

Stir in cream and cup of cheese in the last half hour of cooking (just stir and cook on low until all is blended – dairy gets funny and starts to break down when it is cooked too long). Garnish with toppings of your choice.

Served with beer bread – it’s an amazing combination….
