Crock-Pot Veggie Loaded Baked Potato Soup Recipe (1)

Bacon.I grew up thinking it was pretty much the best invention ever.

It was one of the first things I learned how to cook and I could make a perfectly crispy strip of bacon with my eyes closed and my hands tied behind my back. (well… in theory)You can imagine everyone’s surprise when I went full on veggie and swore off the stuff.

But can you imagine my surprise when I realized not only could I not have my favorite sandwich, the ever-glorious BLT, but my favorite soup as well? It was a little slice of torture! Restaurant after restaurant offered up delicious baked potato soup and, every time I asked, I was notified that the bacon was not only a topping, but in the soup recipe itself. I was devastated. We’re talking years of rejection.

Well it’s time to break out the crock-pot and tackle the soup! Sorry bacon… but you have to get the heck out of my soup.

Servings: 8 cups

Author: Jenn Laughlin - Peas and Crayons

Ingredients

  • 5 medium russet potatoes (approx. 2 pounds peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch cubes)
  • ½ cup finely diced celery (approximately 3 stalks)
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 cups vegetable broth plus extra to taste
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • 1 cup milk plus any extra to taste
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/2-3/4 cup sharp cheddar grated
  • a few cranks of ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp dried dill (add 1/4 tsp first, taste, then double if you love it!)

TASTY TOPPINGS

  • plain greek yogurt or sour cream
  • freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • zesty red pepper flakes
  • chopped green onion chives work too!

Instructions

  • Chop your veggies and toss em in the pot!

  • Next add veggie broth, garlic, butter, salt, and pepper.

  • Set your slow cooker to HIGH and cook for 4 hours, or, if you're gone for the day, set it to LOW for 8 hours.

  • After returning to your slow cooker, you have a very important (ok not that important) decision to make. Do you want your soup chunky or smooth?For smooth soup, use a potato masher or even an immersion blender (my tools of choice) to creamify the soup.For chunky potato soup, grab a wooden spoon and mash the potatoes partially.

  • Ready to eat? Simply mix in your cheese, milk, spices, and a spoonful or two of green onions or chives. For a thinner soup, you can totally add more broth or milk as desired; simply add extra seasoning and mix-ins along with it and you're good to go!

  • Give it a taste, add any extra seasoning as desired, toss on some toppings, and dig in! I like adding extra dill and a little more garlic powder! The flavor was spot on and I didn't miss bacon one bit! Success! It legit tastes like a loaded baked potato when you top it with sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, and green onion - love it so!

Notes

I like my baked potatoes with a crispy kosher salted skin, so I used salted butter and kosher salt in the recipe. Feel free to use unsalted butter and then salt to taste. You can always add more at the end if you decided to later. Let your tastebuds be your guide! xo

Using unsalted butter? Season a with a little extra salt, to taste.

Say Cheese!

Why do I use sharp cheddarandparmigianacheese in this soup? They’re more flavorfu! This way you can actually taste them in the soup without having to use a boatload of cheese <– aka they save me calories so I can sprinkle a little fabulous cheddahhh and a dollop of greek yogurt as a garnish before I dive in! See?

There’s a method to my madness. Well, sometimes.

So . . . How was it?

I’m at a loss of words to describe how truly awesome this soup is. It’s everything I dreamed it could be and I could easily eat it at every meal. Ok, ok — I HAVE been eating it at nearly every meal day after day. The fact that I’m not even close to being tired of this comforting crockpot wonder is a surefire sign of its amazingness.

Is it still cold where you are? Make this! If it’s warm… let me come crash on your couch and I’ll make you a bowl. We can crank up the AC while we eat it and then hit the beach afterwards. Tempting, eh?

Potato Oops

Don’t buy super giant mutant potatoes. You know the ones you look at and wind up with a food baby? If you use 5 of those you will end up with a crockpot filled to the brim with mashed potatoes. I am bound by an unspoken sisterly bond to refrain from ratting out the person responsible for this note 😉 Buy normal potatoes, lol.

We make this Crock-Pot Veggie Loaded Baked Potato SoupALL. THE. TIME.

I’m a tad obsessed and hope it’s a hit in your house too! Enjoy!
