This hearty slow cooker potato soup is a delicious recipe that’s perfect on a cold winter’s day.

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

For such a simple soup, you will find it incredibly rewarding. It looks and tastes great, and is certainly a dish I like to cook often.

It’s so easy to overindulge with this cheesy creamy potato soup as it’s just so delicious. I love dipping some fresh bread into this soup, and it’s so incredibly addictive.

Some other extra ingredients go great with this soup. For example, I love to have some crispy bacon and a little bit of extra cheese with the soup. You should give it a try, it’s amazing.

As I mentioned in the cooking tips further down the page, you don’t have to blitz all the soup. If you like chunky soup, then blitz roughly a quarter of it, so the liquid is slightly thickened.

If you’re looking for a dessert to have after the soup, then I highly recommend the rice pudding. It’s the perfect complimentary comfort food.

Any leftovers are worth keeping as it makes for a great easy lunch the next day. Simply keep covered and stored in the fridge until you require it.

Cooking Tips

  • If you prefer a chunky potato soup, then remove and blitz one-third of the mixture. Add this back into the rest of the soup to help thicken it.
  • The soup should be nice and thick by the time you’re ready to serve. If it is too thick then add some more liquid. Alternative, if it is too thin, then thicken it using some cornstarch and water.
  • There are many different varieties of potato. For this recipe, I used Yukon golds, but you can use any type. The soup might not be as nice with some varieties.
  • Use a stick blender to blitz the soup in the slow cooker. It's a lot easier than having to transfer it to a food processor then back to the slow cooker.
  • The sour cream can be replaced with just plain Greek yogurt or even heavy cream. For the best result, I highly recommend sticking to the sour cream.

There are many other soups that you need to try cooking in the slow cooker. For example, an absolute favorite of mine is the corn chowder. Much like this soup, it’s creamy and the perfect comfort food.

Alternatively, if you feel like something less soupy, then the cheesy potatoes are worth trying. They have delicious amounts of crispy bacon and look as good as it tastes. I highly recommend trying it.
