We love this delicious Slow Cooker Cheesy Baked Potato Soup recipe. It is so easy to make! If you love baked potatoes and you love soup then you are going to fall in love with this creamy soup.  The secret is the hashbrowns! It is a delicious and hearty meal that everyone is going to love. Best of all it is easy for a busy night and perfect on the weekend.  We love to serve this in the fall and winter months.  All you need is some crackers on the side and you set for a delicious dinner.

In a 3-4 quart crock pot add water, broth, onion, green onion, carrot, salt, pepper, and potatoes. Cook on low setting for 6-8 hours.  Next add flour to heavy cream and stir until smooth. Add to crockpot and cook on high for 20-30 minutes or until mixture is thickened.  Finally add cheddar cheese and stir until melted. Cook on low for 10-15 minutes then turn to “keep warm” setting.
When ready to serve, sprinkle crumbled bacon, fresh chive, optional cracked pepper, and a little green onion over each bowl of soup and serve warm.

To prepare as a freezer meal simply combine your hashbrowns, onions, carrots, salt and pepper together and freeze.  When you are ready to prepare place into the slow cooker with 32 oz chicken broth and water. Cook on low setting for 6-8 hours and follow the recipe.

I hope you enjoy this slow cooker cheesy baked potato soup as much as we did!

  1. I made this today and it was AMAZING!!!! I did not add the bacon or any of the extra toppings because it really does not need anything! I didn’t have Kosher salt, so I used sea salt and it turned out perfect. A new family favorite!

  2. What a wonderful soup! I chopped my carrots into small pieces, and they were not tender at 6 hours on low. Maybe next time I should try thinly shredding them instead? What a great way to get a one’s vegetables. I LOVED this soup and will be holding on to this great recipe.
