Leialoha's notes for this recipe:
The first time I made this I didn't think my children would like it. Boy, was I wrong! I got this out of the crockpot book of recipes that came with the crockpot. I like to serve it with hot ham and cheese sandwiches! I hope you enjoy! Easy to start in the morning and ready when you get home from work! Smells wonderful too!

Put all ingredients except evaporated milk in crock pot. Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours. Stir in evaporated milk during last hour.
As with all soups the second day is better if you manage to have any leftover!

Do you think I could add some shredded cheese to this WHILE it's cooking, or would it be better to add it just before I SERVE it? I've never made potato soup from scratch so didn't know. ty. Sounds yummy!

I would not add the cheese until after the soup has cooked. I would add it just before serving the soup. You could try to add the cheese the same time you put in the evaporated milk, but my experience with some cheese is that it melts and clumps up into balls if you cook it too long. Good luck, I hope this has helped you!
