Slow Cooker Potato Soup
In the fall, I would eat soup every day of the week if I could! I absolutely love soup! So I was so excited when Ruthie shared this post with me. I know you will love all of her fall inspired recipes and her special announcement at the bottom of this post!
Hi again to all of Beneath my Heart’s friends… it’s Ruthie from Whats Cooking with Ruthie and I’m so happy to be here to share with y’all again this month!
I can hardly believe that Autumn weather is here, the leaves are turning around our neck of the woods and it’s put me in the mood for some delicious savory soups…
AND what’s better than a delicious savory SLOW COOKER soup?! Not a whole lot, in my book. I love to throw it together in the morning and walk in that evening to dinner-ready-to-go :)
Slow Cooker Potato Soup is perfect for a fall day or pretty much any day for that matter!
- 10 red potatoes, cubed
- 1 large onion, diced and sautéd in butter
- 5 cups water

I have an old Chambers stove and this will be perfect in the Thermowell! Love potato soup and really all soups and stews. The skinny pumpkin bars look delish as well. I need to revisit her site. as she seem to have a similar food aesthetic for home-style cooking. CTD

How much is one package of real bacon bits. I buy a big package at Sam’s? Is it a cup ?
Hi Julie… I’m sorry, I should have specified the package size on the bacon bits. I used the 3 ounce size which is just over a 1/3 a cup. You’ll love this soup! Enjoy.
What size is a package of bacon bits?
3 ounce package :)
This looks great, I am going to try it this weekend. Do you know how much one serving is? One cup? 1/2 cup? I am doing weight watchers so I am trying to figure out how many points this would be. Thanks!
This looks amazing! Do you think it’d freeze well?
I think so. :)
This looks wonderful. I’ve got everything to make it so tomorrow’s dinner it will be!
Traci – My family LOVED this soup! Even my kids that “hate’ soup love it. My husband even requested it again today! thank you for this awesome recipe.
But DO NOT freeze! The half & half will curdle. Ick.
Thanks for the recipe. I’m making it tonight!
Did you use regular cheddar or white cheddar? Thanks!
I used regular cheddar.
I just dumped a whole packet of ranch mix in will it. E to salty? Any recommendations for Making it better?
