Crock Pot Potato Soup

My mom use to make the best Potato Soup...It was something we loved to eat and almost couldn't wait for the weather to get cooler so she would make it...

Now that I have a home and family of my own, I enjoy making this for them...and of course, the fact that I can do this in my crock pot makes it all the better...

Crock Pot Potato Soup

Ingredients:

  • 6 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 carrots, sliced thin
  • 2 ribs celery, small chunks
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups half n' half
  • Bacon bits or cubed ham, optional

Directions:

Combine first set of ingredients in crock pot. Cover and cook on LOW 6 hours (HIGH 3 hours).

If using chunks of ham, put that in with the first set of ingredients. If using bacon bits, put that in during the last 30 minutes of cooking or you can sprinkle over individual bowls.

During last 30 minutes of cooking, you will want to mix the flour and half n' half together. Pour into the crockpot and mix well. Cover and cook for 30 minutes.
