Updated November 20, 2017
4-6 large yellow potatoes, diced
large onion, finely diced
cans (18 oz each) Progresso™ Soup Creamy Mushroom
cups Progresso™ chicken broth
cup cooked bacon, crumbled
cup shredded sharp cheddar
cup diced green onions
Place potatoes, onion, garlic, soup and chicken broth in a 4- to 5-qt slow cooker.
Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Stir well; salt and pepper to taste.
Serve topped with sour cream, bacon, green onions and cheese.
- For a twist on this recipe, use Progresso™ Potato & Bacon Soup instead of Creamy Mushroom.
- There’s nothing better than a baked potato topped with all the fixings. Unless, of course, we’re talking about baked potato soup loaded with everything under the sun—bacon, cheddar, sour cream, green onions, etc.This recipe is a classic—only it’s made even easier than the classic version, because this basic (but not #basic) soup calls for just 5 ingredients. Rather than making a rich roux with flour or cornstarch and butter, we shortened the prep time by tossing in creamy Progresso™ Soup. Set it, forget it and 6-8 hours later, you have a thick, creamy potato soup ready to be loaded up with all your favorite baked potato toppings.So grab your Snuggie, cozy up in front of a crackling fire (place video on YouTube), and get through winter the delicious/baked potato soup way: one comforting spoonful at a time.
