How to Make Laura's Crock-pot Rustic Potato Soup


  1. In a 6 qt. crock-pot. Add in both cartons of Vegetable Stock, potatoes, onions, celery, carrots, thyme, parsley flakes and bay leaves.
  2. In a sauté pan, cook bacon until crisp and drain thoroughly on paper towels.
  3. Add cooked & drained bacon to crock-pot.
  4. Cook on low heat for about 8 hours. (I set it and go to bed)
  5. In a saucepan, melt butter and add flour and whisk in evaporated milk. Once it starts to thicken, remove from heat. Slowly spoon it into crock-pot stirring to keep lumps out. Keep adding until you get a nice creamy consistancy.
  6. Add Salt and Pepper to taste.
  7. Optional Garnishes: cheese, bacon bits, onions, fresh parsley. Whatever floats your boat! Enjoy!!
