This is a soup that we usually had at Christmas. It was pretty much a staple on the menu since I was a kid and I have kept it on the menu for my family all of these years. However, we like it any time the weather is cool and we want something to warm our insides.
2Layer sliced potatoes, sliced onion, green beans and bacon, sprinkling with salt and pepper as you go.
3In a medium bowl, add soup and water and whisk until smooth. Pour over mixture in crockpot.
4Dot with butter, about 3 tablespoon total.
5Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until potatoes are tender..
6Taste and adjust seasonings.
Replace the green beans and bacon with , 2 cans whole kernel corn, drained and 2 cups cubed ham; or 2 cans sweet peas, drained and a dozen or so pearl onions instead of the large chopped onion.
