Potato Soup with Hash Browns


Baked potato soup made with hash browns, great for cold weather! I serve it in a bread bowl if I have the frozen bread dough handy and raised. Bread bowl made from Rhodes® frozen bread dough.

6 servings


  • 1 (28 ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed

  • 42 ounces chicken broth

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 1 large potato, peeled and diced

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • cup shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons bacon bits, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions, or to taste


  1. Put hash browns, chicken broth, soup, potato, onion, and pepper in a slow cooker.

  2. Cover and cook on Low until diced potatoes are tender and soup is hot, 3 to 5 hours.

  3. Drop in softened cream cheese; use a whisk to get it all melted and mixed in.

  4. Garnish with Cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and green onions.

Cook's Notes:

If you choose not to add the bacon bits, you may want to add salt.

Don't use fat-free cream cheese--it won't melt.
