I love the starchy, creamy decadence of loaded twice baked potatoes, but I rarely have the patience to make them. Instead, I get my fix from this easy-to-make soup. Simply fry up some bacon, toss a few ingredients in your slow cooker, and you’ll have a satisfying, delicious meal.
Potato soup can be smooth or chunky, but for this version I prefer a creamy finish and use toppings to add texture. Yukon gold potatoes give the soup a lovely buttery color and the thin, tender skins don't need to be peeled. Slow cooking the garlic mellows the bite, for a milder flavor that enhances instead of overpowering. A blend of heavy cream and sour cream provides a rich, velvety finish.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
