CrockPot Potato Soup

I love my crockpot so very much! In fact, now that the winter weather has set in, I cook with it non stop! It not only frees me up to do other things, but it also makes the food taste...OH MY GOODNESS!

In light of the winter season being upon us, I decided to share with you my absolute favorite crockpot recipe--my homemade potato soup. Hope you enjoy!

Crockpot Potato Soup

2 and 1/2 cups of cooked, diced potatoes
2 and 1/2 cups of juice from cooked potatoes
1 cup sour cream
1 can of cream of celery
1 can of evaporated milk
1 bunch of green onions
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Peel potatoes and dice them. Place potatoes in a microwave safe bowl and cover with 3-4 cups of water. Put in the microwave on high for about 10 minutes.

  2. While potatoes are cooking, add to crockpot evaporated milk, sour cream, cream of celery, and cheddar cheese. Turn slow cooker on low and let melt together.

  3. Once potatoes are done, pour the amount needed in to the slowcooker. If you need more liquid, you can add some more of the potato water. Salt and pepper the soup to taste and let simmer for about an hour.

  4. Right before you serve, cook the bacon and allow it to cool. Crumble it and add it to the top of your soup along with some chopped green onions and extra shredded cheese. Serve with crackers or your favorite crusty bread.
