Weight Watcher Recipes – Crock Pot Potato Soup

It doesn’t really feel like soup season right now. The weather here has been so strange lately. Normally by this time we have a lot of snow on the ground and right now, we don’t even have any snow. The temps have been fairly nice too. Today we had some freezing drizzle and I had to drive about 15 mph to work this morning. By the time lunch time hit, the roads were pretty clear.

I just love crock pot recipes because they’re so easy. Just dump all the ingredients in and let the pot do the rest. Stir every now and then and your meal is ready. I’ve been finding a lot of good crock pot recipes too lately. The other week ago I cooked some ground turkey meat balls in the crock pot with some marinara sauce and that was so good. The only ingredients in this soup are a bag of frozen hash browns, cream cheese, cream of chicken soup, and onion, and chicken broth. The only hard thing to do is to chop the onion and if you have one of those onion chopper gadgets then it’s even easier. This is one really creamy soup, if you have a lactose intolerant husband like I do, make sure he takes his pill. :)

    I tried this recipe and I really liked the potato soup even tho for some reason mine turned out a little chickeny tasting, still very good, also I really like the hashbrowns in it because it seems easeir for my almost 2 year old daughter to eat it. I will be bringing the soup to work all week to finish :)

    Looks yummy!!!

    I always buy bags of frozen chopped onions for soup recipes… even with my onion chopper, my eyes still water and burn so badly that I can’t see out of them!

    I made this and loved it and so did my family. It was real easy. I added a can of cut green beans (drained and rinsed) to mine because my husbands likes green beans in his potato soup.

    One of my facebook friends posted this recipe but it called for only 2 cans of chicken broth (14 oz each). I’m planning on making it tomorrow so I wonder should I use 2 or 3 cans? I guess I will start with two and see how it looks.

    Me again. Okay, I made this today and it is truly delicious…just try eating only one cup! I did make a couple of minor changes; I had to cook it longer as the hash browns were still a little chewy after the allotted time so I cooked it probably for another hour. I also cooked up some low sodium turkey bacon until crisp and chopped it up. I added it after the first hour and I love the way it gives the soup a bit of smoky flavor. And lastly, I used a hand blender and made the whole soup smooth because I didn’t like the bit of a grainy texture it had. This is a keeper!

    I’m going to try this crockpot potato soup for the 1st time tomorrow. I’m going to put fat free cream of mushroom soup in it instead of the cream of chicken soup. & 28 oz of fat free chicken broth & 8 oz of 1% milk & some chopped brocolli & maybe a little real butter. The hash browns & the onion & the cream cheese will stay the same. Can I put the cream cheese in at the beginning? Ooh, I’m hoping it will be delicious!

    Is the serving size really 1 1/2 cups? I measured it out and that seems like a lot and there is no way I’ll get 8 servings if they are that big.
