How to make potato soup in a slow cooker

Some people think of soup as a side dish, something that isn’t meant to be taken as seriously as any main course. It’s probably safe to say that those people probably haven’t tried this to-die-for potato soup recipe from All Recipes. The recipe takes no time at all to prepare — all  you have to do is combine all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 8-9 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours. Here’s what you’ll need:
10 red potatoes, cut into cubes
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup real bacon bits
1 small red onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon ranch dressing mix
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 tsp pepper
1 cup half-and-half (or table cream)
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1.Add potatoes and flour into the slow cooker first, then mix around to make sure all parts of the potatoes are covered.
2.Combine all remaining ingredients with the exception of the half-and-half (or table cream) into the slow cooker.
3. Cook on low for 8-9 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours.
4. Add in the half-and-half and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
5. Add desired toppings and enjoy!
Here’s a tip: Make sure the potatoes are all cut to approximately the same size. Smaller potatoes will cook faster, and dicing to the same size will prevent you from having unevenly cooked potatoes.
That’s it! The smell this soup makes will have everyone in the house drooling and asking for more! For a more detailed step-by-step walkthrough of this recipe, watch the video below or check out the full write up on All Recipes.
