You can make homemade potato soup from scratch right in your crockpot. This soup is loaded with bacon, potatoes, and cheese. 



  • 3lbs Yukon gold potatoes, chopped (I used baby golds)
  • 24oz (3 cups) chicken stock
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, chopped (about 5 tbsp)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 12oz can (1.5 cups) of evaporated milk 
  • 1 tsp salt (more or less depending on the type of cheese you use)
  • 1 tsp black pepper 
  • 3/4 cup plain, Greek yogurt
  • 4oz sharp cheddar, shredded
  • Toppings: bacon, sour cream/greek yogurt, cheese, chives (anything you'd top your baked potato with!)


  1. Add potatoes, chicken stock, bacon, and onion powder to the slow cooker. Cover with the lid. 
  2. Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours. 
  3. Once the potatoes have cooked, in a small sauce pan add the butter. Once the butter has melted, whisk the flour in to fully combine. 
  4. Slowly add the evaporated milk, whisking constantly. Add in the salt and pepper. Continue to cook over low heat, stirring constantly until it thickens. Remove from heat. 
  5. Pour into the potatoes and stir to combine. 
  6. Add in the greek yogurt and shredded cheese. Stir until all of the cheese has melted and it is mixed completely. 
  7. Serve and top with your favorite toppings!
