Slow Cooker Cream of Potato Soup

Rated as 4.27 out of 5 Stars

"This is an excellent slow-cooker recipe I got from my sister. It's very simple to prepare and easy to adjust with different add-ins and garnishes. I like to add 2 cups of diced cooked vegetables (peas, corn, carrots, beans, broccoli, etc.) and a chopped smoked sausage after the soup is pureed. You can garnish the soup when serving with a little sour cream, cooked, crumbled bacon, grated cheddar cheese, or chopped chives. "

This is an incredibly easy and very delicious recipe. I modified it slightly by adding a can of chicken broth before adding the rest of the water, but otherwise did not add or change anything. ...

I thought this was going to be an excellent soup. For my taste, there were too many leeks. Three leeks equalled almost two cups. I would approach the recipe again and add 1 leek and use milk ...

This is so easy and so yummy! No leeks at my local market, so I used a Spanish onion instead, and added some sauteed carrot and celery after I mashed up the soup - no blender so I used a potato...
