how to make homemade potato soup
How do you like your potato soup? I like mine with a little cheese and crackers. The best way to make homemade potato soup is to put it in the slow cooker and let it cook all day.
A little planning in the morning and you will have yourself a meal for a week.
7 potatoes, peeled and cubed (I used russet)
1 carrot or 1/2 can of cooked carrots
1 26 oz container of chicken stock
1 cup cheddar cheese
Peel the potatoes (keep the skins on if you want to) and cut them into cubes.
Add the potatoes and chicken stock into the slow cooker.
Chop the carrot super thin and cut it up as fine as you like (the smaller you cut it up, the faster it will cook). Add water if needed to cover the potatoes and carrots.
You will want to cook this on low for 6-8 hours, so start it in the morning if you want it for dinner.
Once it has been cooking for a few hours, stir it up a bit to loosen the potatoes (you can do this when you get home as well).
Add the cheese after it has been cooking a while and right before you serve it, so the crock pot doesn’t burn.
Stir it in and when it melts it’s ready to serve!
