What's For Dinner Tonight?

The crock pot has been my cooking companion lately .
Last week we dined on pinto beans then, chili.
Tonight's dinner is another crock pot creation.
 I found the recipe on Pinterest.

Baked Potato Soup

- 5lbs Russet Potatoes, washed but NOT peeled. Diced into 1/2 inch(ish) cubes
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 10 cloves of garlic (you can use whole, crushed, or minced)
- 8 cups chicken stock
- 16 oz cream cheese 
- 1 TBS seasoned salt or all-purpose seasoning 

- Crumbled bacon
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- Green onions

- Add potatoes, onion, garlic, seasoning and chicken stock to slow cooker.
- Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours.
- Remove and puree the garlic cloves (if you used whole cloves) along with 1/2 to 1/3rd of the soup, and then reintroduce to the remainder in the crock pot.
- Stir in the cream cheese and allow to melt. Stir every 10-15 minutes until soup is well blended.
- Top with your choice of garnishes & serve!

Yields about 10-12 servings.

I'm so anxious to see how this turns out!
I'll let you know tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to hearing how it turned out. My main question is how thick (or thin) the soup turns out. Sounds delicious though.

Good Morning Carol!

Found your blog through Trish's...and just wanted to say that this recipe looks delicious! We raise our own potatoes...and my guys are definitely potato fans. I am going to try this recipe very soon! Thanks for sharing.

God bless,
