This rich and creamy Potato Soup is perfect comfort food that the whole family will love and you can make it in 10 minutes!
You don’t need to use a heavy cream for the Slow Cooker Potato Soup, the recipe uses Sour Cream or Yoghurt which are healthier alternatives with no loss of flavor.
The Blogger has made a few changes to her traditional Potato Soup so that it is still rich and creamy even though it’s cooked slowly. The secret to keeping the soup thick and creamy without the heavy cream is finishing off by melting some butter and stirring in flour to form a ‘roux’ in a saucepan. Then whisk in a can of evaporated milk.Don’t you just love easy breezy recipes!
Start by chopping the potatoes and onions with some cooked bacon. You can fry the bacon or cook it in your microwave while you chop the potatoes. Throw all the ingredients into the pot with a chicken or vegetable stock and set to simmer for around 4 hours.
