Easy Crock Pot Potato Soup Recipe

Living on a potato farm you can imagine just how many meals we eat with potatoes.  This isn’t really a bad thing because my family loves them and yet another bonus is how versatile they are.  Potatoes can quickly go from being a main dish like this Crock Pot Potato Soup to a side dish like these Oven Roasted Potoatoes & Mushrooms.  Heck I even have several dessert recipes that include potatoes!

It’s been an unusually warm winter for us this year but that doesn’t mean I don’t crave a few hearty soups.  The other family members are not big soup eaters so if I want to indulge in a hearty soup recipe I lean heavily towards this Crock Pot Potato Soup because it’s one of the few everyone will eat seconds on, heck even firsts.

  4. Stir in the cream cheese until well blended.

  6. Note: if you like the soup a little thicker you can mash some of the potatoes up and it chunky and so creamy and just like those at the restaurants.
