Crockpot Baked Potato Soup

Who doesn’t love a nice baked potato with some sour cream, cheese and bacon? How about taking all those wonderful flavors and turning them into a quick and easy crockpot soup. I think peeling the potatoes was the hardest and most time consuming part of making this soup. Next time I’ll put my husband to work on that. Overall, a yummy soup that was enjoyed by all and will have a regular spot on the fall and wintertime menus.

    I searched and searched the internet for the PERFECT baked potato soup…..and this was it! It was simple, super easy and got RAVE reviews in my house. This recipe is definitely a keeper, thank you! An easy 5 Golden Stars.

    Very good! However I suggest 1-2 cloves of garlic. Also your recipe was a little confusing… It didn’t say if you are to add sour cream in soup or when to put in half & half. I winged it & it came out great!
