  • Mash potatoes in the slow cooker to your desired thickness and consistency; stir in cream cheese and cooked ham. Simmer soup until cream cheese has melted, soup is thick and creamy, and ham is heated through, 30 minutes to 1 hour.

I doubled this recipe. After adding the initial two cups of stock, it wasn't nearly enough to cover the potatoes. I ended up dumping the whole 32 ounce carton in. I did throw in a teaspoon each of garlic and onion powders, a healthy amount of fresh chives and some Frank's hot sauce. I did use fat free evaporated milk (I've had some disasters using refrigerated milk in the crockpot--I now use canned milk) and reduced fat cream cheese. This turned out very well and smells AMAZING. The cream cheese added a nice creamy flavor without going overboard. Next time, I think I'll cut the milk back by half to get a thicker soup. Read More

It made mashed potatoes basically! Is my HIGH higher than normal? I cup of stock was not enough to cover and only 1.5C of milk hardly added enough liquid. (yes I only had 3C potatoes) Read More

Absolutely delicious! I made mine on the stove and it was ready in less than an hour. Instead of ham I used bacon. I used whole milk and it was thick and creamy. Will make again for sure! Read More
