Late winter, early spring, is a great time to make a savory potato soup for when the winter refuses to leave! This is a new one for me, as we generally make a cheesy broccoli potato soup. Backed off with the usually peppery taste to make room for the grandbabies to enjoy...

How to Make MiMi's Loaded Potato Soup (Crockpot Version)

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the first eight ingredients in the crockpot and bake on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours. Remove the potatoes and mash with fork or mixer, depending on your consistency preference. Return to the hot broth in the crockpot that has been turned off.
  2. Add the instant potatoes, just enough to get a semi-thick consistency. I generally put the whole package. Add the cheeses and melt/mix thouroughly, add the cream last. Season to your preference.
  3. Serve with toppings of your choice!
