Baked Potato Soup

I found this recipe on the internet several years and we all love it. It is a wonderful, cozy, comfort food! This recipe serves 8. I usually do 1 1/2 times the recipe and put it in my 6 qt. crock pot.

Baked Potato Soup

8 cups peeled, chopped potatoes
1 small onion, chopped (about 1/3 cup)
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 oz. softened Cream Cheese
3 - 14 1/2 ounce cans Chicken Stock
1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a 4 qt. crock pot stir together potatoes, onion and bacon. In a large mixing bowl combine cream cheese, soups and pepper. Add mixture to the crockpot.
Cover and cook on log 8-10 hours or on high 4-5 hours. About 30 minutes before serving mash the potatoes - this will make the soup thicker.
Top each bowl with shredded cheddar cheese.

*****I use my immersion blender stick to mash the potatoes. This makes a creamy, smooth, thick soup.

*****The girls (my kitchen clean-up crew) like for me to use the crockpot liners to make clean up easier.....however, if you use an immersion blender, it eats the bag and you end up with plastic in the soup. We know from experience! We still ate the soup...just picked out the plastic!!
