I love making delicious home cooked dinners for my family and I love easy. That’s why my Slow Cooker Potato Bacon and Broccoli Soup fits the bill. It’s oh so delicious and “souper” easy.
The two things that make this recipe simple are the slow cooker and frozen potatoes. I love being able to throw dinner in the slow cooker and go on with my day. Fix and forget!
Using frozen southern hashbrowns cuts down on the prep and cooking time.
You can, however, opt for raw potatoes if you have them on hand – you’ll just need to start it 1-2 hours sooner, depending on your crock pot. Be sure to chop the potatoes small so they’ll cook faster and break down into a creamy/chunky soup texture.
Another key ingredient is bacon. It gives this slow cooker concoction just the right amount of savory, plus I can say to my husband, “yes honey, there’s meat in this.”
This recipe serves 8 people a hearty portion and I like to make grilled cheese sandwiches to round it out. It also tastes great reheated for lunch the next day – the kids love to take it to school!
