Crockpot Potato Bacon Soup
By Amanda Camden-Spina MyKitchenIsMyCastle
This recipe was our make-it-up-as-we-go-along dinner from last night. It is also my first recipe post so bear with me lol.
I had a pile of produce I needed to do something with and my husband had a craving for soup. So we rummaged around in the pantry, broke out the crock pot and went to work.
We're huge fans of potato and garlic, so there's alot of both in the soup. Since this is a slow cook soup, there's plenty of time to adjust ingredient quantities to taste (which is what we did as we were pretty much throwing things in as we thought of them lol).
This recipe makes ALOT of soup, it will fill a 5.5 quart crock pot but it was sooooo yummy that even in that crazy amount, it's nearly already gone. Hope your family enjoys it as much as ours did. Oh, and please, please critique! I'm terrible at keeping track of what I'm doing when I'm cooking and this is my first attempt at putting my concoctions in recipe form. :)

Thank you ladies. Our first batch is now officially gone, didn't even last 24 hours lol. My hubby is already pushing for another one, this time with chicken and maybe some carrots. I'll try to remember to get a picture next time. I hope you both give it try and enjoy :)

My poor crock pot is empty. So I'm going to fill it with your Loaded Potato Soup as soon as I get back from the produce department!
