Slow Cooker Loaded Baked Potato Soup

  • Cooking Time:

    4 hours on High or 8 hours on Low
  • Servings:



6 large russet potatoes, washed, peeled and diced,
1 large onion, chopped
32 oz. chicken broth
3 tsp. minced garlic
3 T. unsalted butter
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1 c. milk
1 c. shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3 T. chopped scallions
4 oz. cream cheese
4 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese, for garnish

Slow Cooker Loaded Baked Potato Soup is the perfect comfort food on a cool night.  This recipe can be altered to be used for a vegetarian recipe too – just omit the bacon and use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

  1. Layer potatoes, then onions in a 6-Quart slow cooker.
  2. Next, add chicken broth, garlic, butter, salt & pepper.
  3. Cover. Cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 6 hours or until potatoes are tender.
  4. Press soup with a masher until potatoes are coarsely chopped, and soup is slightly thickened.
  5. Stir in milk, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and scallions.
  6. Cover and cook for 20-30 more minutes on Low or until cheeses are melted.
  7. Serve in bowls topped with bacon pieces and additional cheese to garnish.

Would this still work if I substituted the cream for almond milk?

As far as I can tell, this IS gluten free – it’s just not dairy free. My bf is gf, and I see no ingredients that he would react to.

I crocked this tonight, with a couple tiny changes, and it is delicious! Thank you for this recipe! Only thing i changed were the potatoes. I used baby red and golden potatoes, which usually come in a bag with purple potatoes called gourmet potatoes. I used about 4 or 5 baby potatoes per large baking potato called for in the recipe. You only have to cut the baby potatoes in half and i leave them unpeeled. Other than that i followed the instructions exactly and it has turned out great. Cant wait to serve to my husband and kids tonight!

What’s the serving size? I want to make this for a staff luncheon and am trying to figure out how much to buy. Thanks!

This looks delicious. Do you think I can use cheddar cheese soup instead of shredded? I have that on hand and the soup is cooking. Thanks

This is in my slow cooker right now…and the house smells wonderful. I don’t have any cream, so I’m going to use evaporated milk at the end and I’m sure it will turn out fine. I can’t wait! Thanks for such a wonderful site!
