Slow cookers are making a huge comeback these days and with good reason. Toss in a few key ingredients, cover & walk away. When you return you'll be rewarded with rich, savory soup that warms you right down to your toes. Potatoes, garlic & onion simmer in the crock, then get pureed with rich cream. Top with shredded cheese, bacon crumbles & a dollop of sour cream or even thin slices of ham for the perfect cool weather lunch. Yum!

How To Make creamy potato garlic soup

  • 1
    Place the sliced potatoes, onion, salt chicken broth and garlic into the crock of a 4-6 quart slow cooker.
  • 2
    Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours. Near the end of cooking time, test the potatoes by pricking with a fork. They should easily break and fall apart.
  • 3
    Remove lid and puree the soup with a hand held stick blender, in a food processor or blender. Puree in small batches to avoid hot splashes of soup.
  • 4
    Return the soup to the crock and add the heavy cream. IMPORTANT - HEAT CAREFULLY; DON'T LET IT COME TO A BOIL.
  • 5
    Serve hot with your choice of toppings. Shredded cheddar cheese and bacon makes a fantastic dish that tastes like your favorite baked potato with toppings!
