crockpot potato soup

Am I really reviewing recipes? Really? What have I come to? PLEASE feel free to mock me and skip every one of these dorky entries. I would.

But yet I continue to write another one.

What a sad, sad life I lead.

Also, ignore the ring of soup around the bowl. Matt snagged a shot of his 2nds and tried to make the bowl look more presentable but, alas, failed.

This Crockpot Potato Soup was pretty darn good.

Ease of Preparation: A-
- had to peel 5 lbs of potatoes. I don't peel potatoes. I wonder what would happen if you didn't peel them? Interesting.
- the rest was REALLY easy.

Taste: B+ (matt) A- (joy)
- it called for 1 diced small onion. I used 1/2 a bigger onion and it was too much. Matt says if it had less onion it would have been an A- for him.
- The bacon, cheese, and sour cream totally made the meal. I wouldn't make this if I didn't have bacon. The soup itself had a good flavor, but mmmm. What isn't better with bacon, cheese, and sour cream?

Overall: A-

I will make this again. It would make a great meal to bring to a neighbor. Next time I want to use chicken bouillon and water instead of the 3 cans of chicken broth and see if is any different.

  1. I highly recommend the chicken base or beef base at Sam's club versus bouillon. It's much tastier.
