My baked potato soup turned out amazing. I have never tried making potato soup before but I decided that I have a crock pot and I have a deep freeze so I can freeze what we don't eat right away that way we have some stuff in the freezer to use as quick meals during the week.
I know that there are a lot of different ways to make potato soup. Here is how I made it. I don't measure I just throw stuff together. Sorry.
I chunked up all but 5 potatoes of a 5 lb bag of redskin potatoes and put a couple of cups of water in the crock pot and cooked it on high for a couple of hours. I put it in the fridge over night. This morning the hubby pulled it out to warm up a bit before we continued cooking. I put it on high for an hour than drained off the water. I added a tub of sour cream, about a quarter brick of Velveta cheese. I let that cook for a couple of hours on high stirring frequently. I turned it down to low and added about half of a small spice thing of chives, one bag of real bacon bits, and about a quarter of a big brick of mild cheddar cheese. Got that stirred up and let it cook for a few hours on low.
The broth of the soup tastes amazing on a slice of bread. Baby even likes it.
