Here’s a recipe I got from my mom for my favorite potato soup! I love it because it is so easy to make, really tasty, and makes lots of meals (one batch makes enough for about 5 or 6 big servings).
You will need:
One package frozen, diced, hash brown potatoes. This usually comes in a 32oz bag, but doesn’t have to be exactly that size!
One can condensed cream of potato soup
One box vegetable broth, also about 30oz
One 8oz bar cream cheese
Anything you like to use to top! I like pepper, shredded cheese, and oyster crackers, but get creative! Green onions, bacon, shredded carrots, spices, anything you like!
My favorite thing about this recipe is that there is no measuring. Just throw the whole packages in your crock pot!
Empty the whole packages of potatoes (still frozen), condensed soup, and vegetable broth into your crock pot
Cook on low for 6-8 hours
Meanwhile pull your cream cheese out of the refrigerator to soften. If you are worried about leaving it out too long you can microwave it for 10 seconds at a time until it’s soft, but not melted (remember to take the foil off before microwaving!)
Approximately a half an hour before eating add the cream cheese in chunks, stirring just to combine.
Cook another 30 mins to an hour. Stir again before serving, top, and enjoy!
This soup will also keep well in the refrigerator, I like to store it in individual serving sized containers.
