I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup (Cooking Classy)

Holy cow, this was amazing! Original recipe from Cooking Classy. This will be replacing my old potato soup recipe, which is great, but this knocked our socks off!

3-3.5# Russet potatoes, peeled, diced into .5”-.75” pieces (~7 medium potatoes, 8-9 cups)
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced (1 c)
3 (14.5oz) cans low-sodium chicken broth
1 c evaporated milk
1 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/3 c butter
1/3 c all-purpose flour
½ c sour cream
1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese (6 oz)
9 oz bacon, cooked and diced or crumbled
4 green onions, diced

Add potatoes, onion, chicken broth, evaporated milk and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with lid and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours (poke potatoes with a fork to check make sure they’re soft). Ladle out 2 cups liquid from soup in slow cooker into a measuring cup, set aside. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. While whisking, slowly pour 2 cups soup liquid into butter mixture (it will thicken quickly). Pour butter mixture into slow cooker and stir to blend. If desired, mash potatoes with a potato masher to break down into smaller pieces or use an emulsion blender to puree. Cover and cook on high until thickened, about 10 min. Turn heat off (or to warm), stir in sour cream. Serve warm topped with cheddar, bacon and green onions (you can just mix in those 3 remaining ingredients into slow cooker or top individual servings).
