This rich soup has all the fixin's of a loaded baked potato and is just as tasty. We use refrigerated potatoes that are already diced with onions. How's that for easy?

What You'll Need

  • 2 (20-ounce) packages refrigerated diced potatoes with onion
  • 1 (32-ounce) container chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of potato soup, undiluted
  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cup (6 ounces) shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 4 fully cooked slices bacon, chopped

What to Do

  1. In a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, combine potatoes, chicken broth, butter, garlic salt, black pepper, and potato soup.
  2. Cover and cook on HIGH setting 4 hours or on LOW setting 8 hours, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Mash mixture until potatoes are coarsely chopped and soup is slightly thickened; stir in sour cream, 1 cup cheese, and chives. Ladle into individual bowls, and evenly sprinkle each serving with bacon and remaining cheese.

As with many of your recipes, some ingredients are impossible to find at my local Kroger store. Refrigerated potatoes...they never heard of them. Would love it if you would suggest alternatives in the recipes such as....4 cups of diced, raw potatoes with onions. I'd love to try this soup if I could guess how many potatoes are in a 20 oz. bag. Yes, cooking is a challenge for me!

Hi there! When the Test Kitchen made this recipe, it used Simply Potatoes brand of refrigerated potatoes. They found this ingredient in the dairy section (next to the eggs) of a local grocery store. If you would like to make this recipe using regular potatoes, you will need about 2-2.5 pounds (4-5 cups, diced) of blanched potatoes. Enjoy!

Why would you use canned cream of potato soup if your using diced potatos? You can easily make your own cream sauce by using butter, flour, and whole milk.
