In the past, I've made mashed potatoes in the crockpot, but never baked potato soup. Let me tell you, it's a total winner. It was the perfect meal for a freezing day on the go. Chop everything up before you go off to work and bam...delicious dinner waiting for you when you get home.
I had planned to have this with black bread that was baked earlier in a crockpot, but that's a story for another post.
Baked potato soup in the crockpot from Amuse Your Buche
1kg/ 5 med potatoes
500ml chicken stock
1 onion, diced
4 minced cloves garlic
50 g shred cheddar cheese
2 T butter
salt and pepper to taste
toppings of your choice: I used cheese, corn, green onions and turkey bacon
dice potatoes and toss into slow cooker. I left the skins on. Add stock, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook on low 8-9 hrs. Mash with potato masher or immersion blender. Add cheese and butter and let them melt, about 20 min. Add desired toppings to bowls. This reheats well, but needs a bit more liquid as it thickens a lot as it sits.
