crockpot potato soup

Here's one of those slow cooker soup recipes that delivers a satisfying meal with no fuss and the ingredients are almost always on hand (or enough of them that you can wing it)

Come home to a steaming and fragrant soup on a cold or rainy day, just add a little cream on your way in the door, change into your relaxing duds and let this soup give you a big warm hug from the inside out.

You can even add cooked and crumbled bacon or scramble fried hot Italian sausage to the crock pot with the cream for the last hour, for a substantial meat and potatoes dish.
