Loaded Potato Soup {Slow Cooker Recipe}

I don’t like winter. At all. I don’t like being cold and I don’t like snow. January through March is the worst. The holidays have passed and the decorations are down. Everything seems to plain and so drab. At least, there are comfort foods and a crock pot to make recipes like this Loaded Potato Soup, right?

I really like when I can toss a few ingredients in my crockpot and let it simmer all day and have dinner ready hours later with minimal effort. One hearty comfort crockpot meal I love is Potato Soup and I was mad when I realized I lost my favorite recipe. I was determined to put one together and this one is even better than before! Here’s how I make our Loaded Potato Soup now.


8-10 White Potatoes
1 Medium Onion
4-5 Garlic Cloves
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
3.5 cups Chicken Stock
1.5 cups heavy cream
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Crumbled Bacon

First peel and cube potatoes into small cubes. Roughly one inch. Place in the crockpot. Then chop the onion and add to crockpot.

Peel and mince garlic.

I use a garlic press. If you don’t have one. I’d get one they are great to have.

Add in chicken stock and stir.

Cook on low for 7 hours. You could speed it up to about 3 hours on low.  Add in heavy cream and stir. It will look like this after.

Take your immersion blender. Or your regular hand blender like I did (just don’t hit your pot) and blend it together. But only for a moment. You still want lumps and you don’t want it puree. Stir. Let sit on low for another half hour.

It’s filling so I use smaller bowls.


Then top with shredded cheese and bacon crumbles.

This soup will come out very hot so be careful as you serve. Especially when serving kids. My boys and especially my husband kept repeating over and over how good this was. Hubby even said this could be one of the yummiest soups. Let me know if you give it a try.

    I already shared with you, but for anyone who see’s this post… I made the soup and LOVED it. This will be my new loaded potato soup recipe. My old one I liked hot/fresh the night I made it but didn’t care for it left over! This one was still amazing the next day. I froze some, but haven’t tried it yet to see how it freezes (just opened this page to send it to a friend who wants to try it so thought I’d add in that I made it lol)

    I used a homemade veggie stock that I had on hand, but other than that, I didn’t add/change anything from this recipe 🙂

    Super excited to try this, but I made a prep error. I added the cream with everything first. Has anyone done this? Outcomes? Fixes? Do I scrap and start again?

    This recipe was delicious! My children loved it! My picky mother went back for seconds! I only added veggies and meat at the end because my husband complained (he’s a true meat eater). Thanks so much! Will definitely add to our winter meals!!
