No Fuss Potato Soup

I feel like I make potato soup all the time. This is like, what, the third recipe I've shared for potato soup now?!? What can I say, I love the stuff! When I was growing up, we rarely had homemade soup. The only soup I knew came from a can...sad, I know. I remember when I reached junior high age, my mom graduated me from canned chicken noodle or tomato soup to canned potato soup...I was obsessed! I loved the stuff! I always felt so "grown up" eating potato soup while my younger sisters munched on chicken noodle. Yep, I was kind of a loser like that ;)

So that explains my obsession with making potato soup. And I guess that explains why when I found (another) new recipe for it in my trusty Taste of Home Slow Cooker Favorites cookbook, I just had to give it a try! I think this *might* be my favorite version yet!


...6 c. cubed, peeled potatoes
...5 c. water
...2 c. chopped onion
...1/2 c. chopped celery
...1/2 c. sliced carrots
...1/4 c. butter
...2-3 chicken boullion cubes
...2 tsp. salt
...1/4 tsp. pepper
...1 can evaporated milk


In a large slow cooker, combine all the ingredients except for the evaporated milk. Cook on high for 8 hours. Add milk, stirring well. Cook an additional 30-60 minutes, until heated through.

I love potato soup, it's probably one of my very favorite things to eat. Even at restaurants, if I have a choice between soup or salad, I always choose soup, and if they have it on the menu, I choose potato soup 99% of the time. Sadly, though, I've NEVER made homemade from scratch potato soup--I've found a dry mix that's infinitely better than the canned stuff, but I'm thinking it's time to step that up a notch and go for the REAL thing! Thanks for sharing this, and you can be sure I'm going to check out the other two versions you mentioned, as well!

Hello. So nice to meet you. First of all, my family loves potato soup; however, I make it from a pouch and not a can, still not homemade though. I do add crumbled bacon and chopped chives on top if that counts. So needless to say, I am going to make this recipe, thanks for sharing. Secondly I have to give you a compliment on the style of your blog. It is simple, clean, uncluttered and inviting. Today is my first day at Tuesdays at the table. While I have been enjoying the recipes, the other blogs I have been reading were so full of advertising and other such busy stuff, it made it hard to concentrate on what the post was actually all about. So good job. I like it.
