How to Make Cheesy Potato Soup in a Crockpot:
Crockpots or slow cookers are such a help in a busy kitchen. It makes the day so less stressful knowing you have a delicious meal cooking away while you are busy with other duties.
Start your slow cooker potato soup or crockpot potato soup by adding chicken broth, cream of cheddar soup, potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or 3-31/2 hours on high.
Thirty minutes before the end time, use a potato masher to mash up about one half the cooked potato mixture.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter and after butter is melted whisk in flour. Then whisk in half and half and cook on medium heat frequently stirring until mixture begins to thicken. Add to the crockpot potato soup and stir well.
Add sour cream and cheddar cheese to the soup mixture. Stir occasionally during the last 30 minutes to fully incorporate all ingredients.
Serve topped with additional cheddar cheese, green onions and chopped bacon.
