Sundays are made for Crockpots! Potato Soup!

Here is the recipe I tried for Crockpot Sundays!
It was very warm and filling. Perfect for a cold day.

5lb. bag of organic potatoes
1 very small onion or a 1/4 of a regular one. Trust me on this one.
4 or 5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 quarts of chicken broth
2 packages of cream cheese, added near the end
1 package of Bacon, I used turkey bacon. (It makes this soup!)
Garnish with green onions, cheddar cheese, chives or all 3!

Peel and dice potatoes. Put them in your 6 quart slow cooker.
Add onion and garlic.
Add seasonings and then pour in broth.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 5.
The potatoes should be fork tender.
At the end of the cooking time you can either use a potato masher or a hand blender to make a smooth soup. I used a hand blender. I highly recommend the hand blender. I love mine.
Blend until it's your desired consistency.
After blending or smashing the potatoes, crumble in cream cheese and put lid back on.
Cook for 30 mins or until cream cheese is completely dissolved. Stir a few times within that 30 minutes.
While the cheese is melting cook your bacon and fill your house with that delicious aroma!

Now serve up your soup and enjoy!
