So so so so excited to share that all I have to do is the quilting portion and my blanket will be all done, I will post it up tomorrow. I will also share what I did and what I would do differently.
Time to share my crock-pot baked potato soup. To keep things uniform I will put my possible changes for next time at the end so I don’t confuse anyone. I would say that I ended up with enough for 4 hungry adults and maybe some leftovers so you may be able to squeeze 5 or 6 servings.
- 2 ½ large russet potatoes
- 2 small cans chicken broth (4 cups)
- Fresh thyme
- Block of cream cheese
- Sour cream
- White onion
Ok so take your potatoes and scrub them or peel them (I scrubbed them- not a fan of peeling) once they are peeled or scrubbed. Dice the potatoes. I half the potatoes then quarter the halves long way then dice. Add the diced potatoes to the crock-pot dice and add 1 small/medium white onion as well as the 4 cups chicken broth. Add 1-2 springs fresh thyme. I just stripped the leaves and put them straight in. Add some fresh garlic, I did two cloves of garlic. Season your soup with some salt and pepper put the lid on and place on high for 5-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours. When you are about an hour away if you are home put the cream cheese in a mixing bowl and add about a cup of liquid and blend it together and put it all back in the crock-pot. Serve with some bacon, spoonful of sour cream, chives/ green onions and cheese.
Now it was good just how I did it but next time I am going to do things a little differently. I am going to do 2 cups chicken broth and 2 cups of milk. I also am going to make more bacon (I only had 3 slices not in the freezer and didn’t want to cook the freezer bacon) I probably will do a whole pack of bacon since it is awesome. I think with the addition of the milk I will only use half a block of cream cheese and at the same time the cream cheese is added I will add some nice cheddar and chives. I will let you know how it turns out next time in an update below. So stick around.
Happy Thursday! Today is my brother’s birthday! He is 2 years and 3 days older than me so we will also be celebrating his birthday in Vegas this weekend.
