Potato Soup

I LOVE this potato soup! It is definitely our family's favorite. It is easy to make, AND . . . it cooks in a crock-pot! I have a serious obsession with crock-pot recipes. I LOVE making things in the morning and having them ready to go by dinner time. Another cool thing about this recipe is that it FREEZES pretty well! I know it is very surprising to be able to freeze something with potatoes, but this soup can handle it.

8 C. potatoes (diced and peeled)
1/2 C. chopped onion
4 1/2 C. water
6 - 8 chicken bouillon cubes
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese (softened)
1/2 lb. bacon (cooked and crumbled)

In a crock-pot, combine first 6 ingredients. Cover and cook on LOW(if you try to cook it on high, the potatoes will be mushy) for 8-10 hours (for me, it seems to only take about 6 hours). Add cream cheese. Stir until blended. Garnish with bacon.

Thanks Quick Cooking magazine!
