Crockpot Potato Soup #Recipe

crockpot, slow cookerPotato soup is one of my favorite soups and this one will not disappoint! I found this recipe from Mama Loves Food on Pinterest and tried it for myself. You will need a 6-Quart Crock-Pot for this recipe. I think it would even be good if you added in some carrots and celery to the soup! (Edit- I have tried this and it is great this way!)

Crockpot Potato Soup Recipe


  • 5lbs Russet Potatoes, washed but NOT peeled. Diced into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 10 cloves of garlic (you can use whole, crushed, or minced) - I used 10 t of minced jarred garlic
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 1 TBS seasoned salt or all-purpose seasoning (I used Nature's Season All)
  • Crumbled bacon
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Green onions (I don't like green onions so I left them off.)
  1. Add potatoes, onion, garlic, seasoning and chicken stock to slow cooker.
  2. Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours.
  3. Remove and puree the garlic cloves (if you used whole cloves), the cream cheese and ½ to ⅓rd of the soup, and then reintroduce to the remainder in the crock pot.
  4. Stir every 10-15 minutes until soup is well blended.
  5. Top with your choice of garnishes & serve!

  14. I am not an avid cook. I’m a little confused on the cream cheese. Do you cut it up and it slowly and stir to melt it?

    • I just cut it into chunks and add it in. It will melt in the hot soup so then you can just stir it in.

  15. How crucial is it to puree some of the soup? Could I skip that step and just make sure the cream cheese blends in completely?

    • My kids don’t like onions, so pureeing the soup for us makes them disappear. I don’t like it completely puree’d, though. I do like some chunks in my soup. I think as long as the cream cheese is incorporated it doesn’t matter if it’s pureed

  16. Can you add the cream cheese in at the beginning with everything else?

  17. Wondering if this recipe could be used without the garlic? Or if its not that strong once cooked? Wasn’t sure how it would make it taste?

  18. I LOVE potato soup, and am always looking for new ways to make it. This sounds so simple and yummy! And I can make it vegetarian too!
