Crockpot Loaded Potato Soup #SecretRecipeClub

Creamy and comforting Crockpot Loaded Potato Soup. All the yummy goodness of baked potatoes, in a soup!

Loaded Potato Soup

While summer is still struggling to hang on, 

Fall's chill is definitely making it's presence known at night. Which means soup season is finally here. Nothing taste better on a cool Autumn evening, than a steaming warm bowl of soup. Whether it's creamy and thick, or broth-y and full of vegetables, nothing chases away the chilly weather better. Add some crusty bread or crackers, and we are talking about a filling and satisfying meal.


Crockpot Loaded Potato Soup

My Secret Recipe Club assignment this month

was Cook With Sara, a midwestern girl (just like me!) who loves to cook AND eat. Her mom taught her that an attractive and delicious meal on the table shows love for those around you. I couldn't agree more, and often tell my family that the secret ingredient in my cooking is love.

I had a delicious time browsing Sara's recipe index. Things like BLT Dip, Pumpkin Quinoa Bake, and Pumpkin Cake Roll begged to be made, but I had soup on my mind and that's what I ultimately decided on. After going through my own index and seeing that I hadn't shared a potato soup recipe yet, my choice was made. While Sara has her recipe simply labeled Potato Soup, the flavor is anything but ordinary. It's thick, creamy, and full of yummy flavor. I love how she added dill, which is something you don't see in other potato soup recipes. I added mine as a seasoning at the table, since my husband isn't a fan of it. I think the dill added a wonderful dimension to the soup that I really enjoyed though, so I highly recommend it.

I changed the recipe some

by cooking it in a crockpot instead of on the stove, because it's my favorite way of preparing soups and stews. I also used vegetable broth instead of beef, because that's what I keep in stock in my freezer, and left out the butter and flour to make the soup gluten free. Since I left the flour out I needed something to thicken the soup up, so I used sour cream instead of milk.

It turned out amazing, and made a warm and comforting meal. I enjoyed it as is, while my husband added crushed saltine crackers to his. He thinks ALL soups are supposed to have crackers in them. :) This soup will definitely be on our menu throughout the winter months. Thanks for a great recipe Sara!

    1. I work from home too, but it sure is nice to put supper on in the morning or early afternoon, then just forget about it till meal time.
