Slow Cooker Loaded Potato Soup
The same ingredients that make loaded baked potatoes, including russet potatoes, bacon, Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and scallions, also make this slow cooker potato soup.
In a slow cooker, combine potatoes, chicken stock, onion, salt, and pepper.
Potatoes should be cooked for about 4 hours on high.
In the meantime, place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or until evenly browned.
In order to remove the majority of the grease from the skillet, drain the bacon on paper towels.
Utilizing an immersion blender, completely puree the potatoes in the slow cooker.
Set the temperature to Low, add 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese, and cook for 1 to 2 hours.
