Crock Pot Easy Cheesy Potato and Bacon Soup #soup #crockpotrecipe #bacon


Makes 8 servings

1 ½ lbs red potatoes, cubed (with or without skin)
2 cups sliced leeks
6 cups chicken broth
2 tsp garlic powder
½ cup flour, sifted
1 cup crumbled cooked bacon, divided
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper

1.  Place potato cubes, leeks, broth, garlic powder and ½ cup bacon into slow cooker.
2.  Slowly whisk in sifted flour, 1 tablespoon at a time.
3.  Cover and cook on LOW about 4-6 hours, or until potatoes are tender.
4.  Slowly stir in the cheese, a little at a time.  It will get all melty and delicious.
5.  Add plenty of salt and pepper to taste and garnish with remaining bacon and extra cheese, if desired.

Review:
Soup!  It is cold here.  And soup is what I want.  Pretty much every day.  I loved this soup.  The bacon and cheese and potatoes are so comforting.  Kids will love this soup as well.  Serve with some crusty bread and you have an easy meal.  4 1/2 stars
